Gwyneth Paltrow’s hottie character Pepper Potts looks like she could use some dire help from Iron Man Tony Stark, aka Robert Downey Jr., in a new teaser clip for the upcoming movie “Iron Man 3.”

These days movie trailers have become such big events they get their own teasers. The first “Iron Man 3” is slated to debut tomorrow (Oct. 23).

The 18-second trailer teaser released yesterday (Oct. 21) also shows some tantalizing bits of the upcoming picture, including a shiny new Iron Man suit for Tony Stark and an even briefer glimpse of his possible new villain.

Apparently Stark becomes majorly upset when his personal world is turned upside down, according to a new Disney synopsis of the movie. They may include Pepper’s kidnapping by an evil Mandarin villain played by UK actor Ben Kingsley.

The Shayne Black-directed film will tackle a big question haunting Stark: Does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

The movie will also star Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Jon Favreau. “Iron Man 3” lands in theaters May 3, 2013.
