Some new footage from Iron Man 3 shows off more of that epic attack on Stark’s mansion, plus some new clips of Rhodey’s Iron Patriot armor in action.

The studio has released a great clip that goes much further into that attack on Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) home, as he basically summons the Iron Man armor to his body so he can survive a hail of gunfire. Of course, that’s just the first problem, because then the house comes down on top of him. The scene is a massive set piece, and the effects work is fantastic.

A new trailer focusing on Rhodey (Don Cheadle) is also in the wild, including some new footage of that shiny new Iron Patriot gear. It sounds like Rhodey will be a much bigger part of this film, which looks to be a very good thing. Cheadle was one of the best parts of Iron Man 2, and it's nice to see new director Shane Black will be taking advantage of the longtime friendship between Stark and Rhodey this time around.
