We recently showed you fifteen seconds from an "Iron Man 3" TV spot that was set to air during the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, which took place on Saturday (March 23rd). And now we have the full TV spot, showing some new footage from the movie. Watch it below.
Plot: "Iron Man 3" pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
The new movie is directed by Shane Black and is set to hit theaters on May 3rd.
I wish I could get excited by this film. I'm burnt out on old ironworks. If he winds up accidentally shooting a mini-rocket in Pepper Potts face, somebody let me know. I might be mildly interested then.

In all fairness Shane Black has always been a pretty decent screenwriter in terms of combining action with character development. It might be good.
@Sleuth. Oh, I'm not saying it won't be good. I'm just not excited by it. I may be in the small camp of filmgoers who is exhausted by THE AVENGERS heroes. We'll see if Marvel's strategy of having staggered individual films post-AVENGERS is still box office gold this year.
The only films that will definitely get my ass in a theatre this summer are STAR TREK, MAN OF STEEL, and PACIFIC RIM. Everything else is a maybe bordering on "I'll wait for the blu-ray rental."

Meh. Seems they've shown the best parts already. I suspect a stronger showing compared to Iron Man 2, but not much more than that, even it is Black, which means strong direction.
Unfortunately, his charismatically humorous trademarked dialogue probably won't appear since he didn't write the script, which in my opinion, was a mistake. Should have partnered him with someone who knows well the Iron Man back story, not that it's needed, and let Black do the interpersonal exchanges.
