Iron Man returns in all-action trailer for third movie

Fans of the Iron Man movies have had their first proper look at the third installment of the franchise after a full-length trailer was unveiled by Disney.

The film comes hot on the heels of Joss Whedon's superhero mash-up The Avengers, which was a huge success when it opened earlier this year.

In Iron Man 3, Robert Downey Jr. once again plays Tony Stark – and if the trailer is anything to go by, he's really up against it in this one.

Stark's world is torn apart after his home is attacked and he is forced to battle his most powerful enemy to date - the Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley.

The movie also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Don Cheadle, and is being directed by Shane Black.

Iron Man 3 is set for release in the U.K. on 26 April 2013 and U.S. on 3 May 2013.
