Some new footage from Iron Man 3 has been released, showing off the Mandarin’s army as he preps for war with Tony Stark.

Marvel is getting pretty good at slipping out bits of new footage with each trailer, and the latest shows off more of the Mandarin’s (Ben Kingsley) efforts to rally his forces and prepare an attack on Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). These enemy soldiers definitely look like they mean business.

We also get to see some excellent new fight scenes, with Stark only sporting portions of his armor but still kicking an extreme amount of ass. Director Shane Black has hinted we’ll get to see a lot of Stark (as opposed to his suited alter ego) in this film, and he seems to be striking a great balance to that effect.

The sequel stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley.

Iron Man 3 opens May 3.
