I loved the first Iron Man film but was a bit underwhelmed by the sequel, which seemed to cover a lot of the same ground as far as character arcs and action scenes. The trailer for Iron Man 3 looks fantastic though, and I am back on board. I of course love the bit at the end where Tony Stark calls in his "boys" and we see multiple Iron Man suits speeding to the rescue. I paused the screen to see which armors I could recognize and it looks to be an amazing scene. My one quibble was the lack of any armor that resembled the classic look that Tony sported for decades - red & gold with hip-disks and a widow's peak. For a whole generation of fans, that is the Iron Man Suit and it deserves an appearance!
