It appears that Iron Man 3 will not go unnoticed during this Sunday's big game. A new teaser spot has made its debut which will air during the broadcast and a new poster has been unveiled showing Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in a rather gravity-centric predicament.
Seeing as Super Bowl ads are now running at about $4 million, this spot clocks in at a hot 13 seconds. Consequently, the teaser spot is not be a marathon of new material, but it does contain a few sporadic tidbits of new images; specifically, a good look at Jon Favreau returning a Happy Hogan, Guy Pierce as Extremis nanovirus developer, Aldrich Killian, and another quick glimpse of the gorgeous Rebecca Hall as scientist, Maya Hansen, who seemed to pick the WORST possible time to visit Tony and Pepper at their home.
However, the most substantive revelation may come from the new poster which accompanies the spot. We've known for a while that at some point in the film, Tony gets his ass handed to him by something, leaving his armor in shambles. Yet, this poster seems to imply that Tony will once again learn the hard way that reentry is a bitch.
Check below to see the new teaser spot, as well as a poster showing what happens when cutbacks force Tony to use Chinese-made replacement parts for his armors. (Well, that's one theory, anyway.)
