However, this new spot also further spoils a (semi-)big moment in the threequel: The seeming death of Tony’s bodyguard, Happy Hogan. Hogan has been famously portrayed onscreen by Iron Man 1&2 director Jon Favreau – and we even know that Happy could even get an armor made in his honor, to be featured as part of the Iron Legion:
Other than that, snippets of a battle-damaged and remorseful Iron Man, Guy Pearce’s evil scientist character and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) in peril are all familiar sights. The one bit of extra newness to note is Rhodey’s (Don Cheadle) panicked attempt at a phone call, in what seems like the moments before the big Air Force One attack sequence.
Iron Man 3 will be in theaters on May 3rd, 2o13.
