Promos for Iron Man 3 tout the movie as a grimmer, bleaker tale of the billionaire playboy superhero, but the newest clip from the film shows there’s no need to worry that Tony Stark will be without some triumphant save-the-day moments and signature sarcastic quips.
In the new clip that Marvel released Monday, Tony Stark attempts a mid-air rescue of passengers and crew who have fallen out of a crash-bound Air Force One. Check it out below:
Iron Man 3 takes place after the events of last summer’s mega-hit The Avengers and pits Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) against a terrorist called the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Shane Black, who previously directed Downey Jr. in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, takes the reigns of the franchise with this new installment, the first in the trilogy about the Armored Avenger not directed by Jon Favreau.
Iron Man 3, which opened in international markets last week, will hit U.S. theaters on Friday, May 3.
