Iron Man 3 Trailer Coming Tuesday

The first trailer for Iron Man 3, the first film in Marvel's "Phase Two" of films based on their superhero comics, will be released on Tuesday, the company has confirmed via their website.

While fans and the comics press have expected that it would be coming any day now, Marvel has now provided fans with the URL at which the trailer will go live Tuesday.

The film, due in May, follows the events of The Avengers and sees Tony Stark stripped of his resources and facing off against The Mandarin with his back against the wall, according to Marvel's official summary. The Ten Rings--the terrorist group that appeared in the first film--will play a role, as will the Extremis serum from the Warren Ellis run on Iron Man comics, according to multiple sources.
