Marvel Studios has dropped an exclusive new trailer for Iron Man 3. The sequel pits the hero against his biggest enemy yet -- the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Without the assistance of the Avengers, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has to depend on his brain as well as his brawn.

The Mandarin is a terrorist whose sole purpose is to destroy Iron Man. He hits Tony where it hurts and breaks him down mentally and physically. Following the events of The Avengers, Tony's not in the best state. He's a changed man. Will that help or hinder his chances of survival?

Here's the official synopsis:

Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against 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. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?


Iron Man 3 hits theaters May 3.
