Yesterday the new trailer for Iron Man 3 hit the airwaves -or should I say the Cat 5’s- and it looks to be interesting to say the very least. This time around we have the amazingly talented Shane Black penning and directing, which makes me very excited.

The two round the bend with a shout-out to Disney World’s 41st anniversary […]
