Watch Iron Man 3 trailer teaser online now!

Iron Man 3 is following the tradition set by Captain America: The First Avenger , by unleashing a short teaser for the full sequel trailer.

We're not sure how we feel about this current trailers for trailers trend, but we couldn't be more excited for Iron Man 3 , and at least this time we know exactly how long we'll have to wait before the full trailer is unleashed - 23 October.

Check the teaser out below, then come back on 23 October to see the full version of Robert Downey Jr.'s return to the iron suit.

There's really very little to see here, save for Stark's blinged-up, gold-heavy suit, and it looks like Pepper Pots is in serious trouble (which was kinda hinted at in the official synopsis ).

There's no clear look yet at Ben Kingsley's Mandarin, Rebecca Hall's Maya Hansen, or Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian. Guess we'll have to wait until Tuesday for that.

Iron Man 3 opens in the UK on 26 April 2013.
