Tony Stark Sends Holiday Greetings to the Mandarin in First Iron Man 3 Clip

Although I don’t think the Mandarin is going to feel all warm and cuddly after he hears what ol Tony Stark has to say to him by way of a bunch of nosy reporters, especially that whole bit about being “dead already”. I could be wrong, of course, but nah, probably not. Maybe Tony shouldn’t have given out his home address, though, that seems a tad, I don’t know, inviting?

Anyhoo, take a look at the first clip from Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”. It’s not an action clip, but it’s certainly action-packed. Verbally speaking, anyway. (And he did totally destroy that iPhone, so that’s kinda action-y.)

Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man 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?

Starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Dale Badge, Jon Favreau, and Ashley Hamilton.
