With Marvel set to bow Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3” early next month (late this month in parts of the world not called the United States of America), the TV spots are getting better and better. Here are two of the most revealing spots yet for the movie — they also couldn’t be more different. One is all jokes and gags and Iron Patriot doing what Iron Patriot does, and the other is all pathos with Tony Stark’s life getting demolished by the Mandarin’s army of super soldiers.

Check them both out below, check them outers.

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