Some of Tony Stark’s most telling character moments in the Iron Man films come when he’s standing in front of the press, so it’s kind of perfect that this is the first full clip we get to see from Iron Man 3.
In the embed below, Tony (Robert Downey Jr) issues a rather pointed, personal and non-subtle threat to The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Even though I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to threaten to kill someone, you can’t deny that is a very powerful moment, one that perhaps sets-up some pretty damning stakes later on in the film.

So is that helicopter attack on Tony’s house shown in the trailer retaliation for Tony’s threat? I guess we’ll find out when Iron Man 3 opens in a theater near you on May 3rd.
