Tony Stark used to think he was the hottest superhero around. Then he met up with a super soldier, a Norse god, and, as he put it, "a giant green rage monster." They had to band together to save to world from an alien invasion, but the battle -- and his near-death experience -- left him shaken and unmoored.
So how does he cope? Well, he builds new toys, of course.
The final theatrical trailer for this summer's "Iron Man 3" premiered exclusively on Yahoo! Movies on Tuesday morning, and it reveals that Tony Stark, played for the fourth time by Robert Downey Jr., has been busy indeed. Not only does he have a new technology that allows him to control his super-powered armored suit using only his mind, he's created a whole fleet of new suits, including one that looks bigger and badder than anything we've seen before.

The trailer finds a battered Tony Stark and his old pal James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle) in dire straits, as is their habit. "We do need backup," says Tony, to which Rhodey responds, "That's your department." Then two armored suits streak across the sky, followed closely by a pack of additional armors. They come to a stop and hover; seven in a row with many more flying up from behind. They vary in size, color, and even the shape of the glowing reactor in their chests. "There's my boys," Stark says like a proud papa.
