Playing 'Iron Man' Meets New Villain in Latest Trailer

Every superhero must face some kind of adversity--after all, a superhero wouldn't be super if nothing stood in his way. As we see in the newly released Iron Man 3 trailer, "Tony Stark/ Iron Man" will continue to face more adversity in the upcoming film through a new villain.

While the man in the body armor standing over Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) remains unknown, all signs suggest that it's his arch nemesis The Mandarin, who will be played by Ben Kingsley, or one of his evil allies.

If the latest Iron Man film is aligned with the comic book on which it is based, the man in what appears to be Iron Man's armor is Harold "Happy" Hogan (Jon Favreau), who The Mandarin teleports into Iron Man's home to battle him.

As the back-and-forth continues between Iron Man and the pesky villain, we also see in the trailer that against his wishes to keep his wife, "the one thing [he] can't live without," out of harm's way are thwarted by The Mandarin, who holds his wife (Gwyneth Paltrow) hostage.
