Tony Stark and Mandarin are getting engaged in a psychological war in a sneak peek of "Iron Man 3" new preview. After Stark sends his archenemy a threat through "a holiday greeting" in an impromptu press conference, Mandarin responds it back with a death threat as seen in the short preview.
The sneak peek only features a monologue from the Mandarin, a brilliant scientist and a virtually unbeatable skilled martial artist whose power comes from his ten rings. The villain, portrayed by Sir Ben Kingsley, coldly asks Tony Stark a difficult question to answer, "I'm gonna offer a choice. Do you want an empty life or a meaningful death?"
The full clip of the film about the armored superhero is slated to air at 2013 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14. Meanwhile, the film itself will hit U.S. theaters on May 3.
The sequel to "Iron Man 2" focuses on brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man who will meet 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.
Directed by Shane Black, "Iron Man 3" stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. Additionally, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Dale Dickey, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau are included in the cast ensemble of the Marvel movie, which is penned by Black and Drew Pearce.
