I’m kind of digging this look. It manages to pay homage to the original comic book design, but turns the Asian-motif from caricature to eccentricity. Ben Kingsley looks like he carries considerable power with a nice tinge of insanity. Kind of a “What if Elvis had been a scientist instead of a musician?”

Who would have ever thought ten years ago that a statement like that could hold water? It is true though and this new trailer is only confirming it further. The Marvel film universe keeps moving forward and this trailer indicates that it might actually be gaining steam. It is still too early to say if the film will be great, but this trailer has definitely made me interested.
Shane Black is obviously going darker and truly exploring Stark as a complicated character. At the same time you can definitely tell that the action is going to be there and be there big time.
Oh, and he had the balls to go full-Mandarin.
