10 Things We Learned From Watching The 'Iron Man 3' Trailer

If you're like us, you've watched the "Iron Man 3" trailer more than once.

The relatively somber picture of a dark Tony Stark left us with a lot of questions. 

What's the deal with Guy Pearce's role in the film? Why are there so many Iron Man suits? And, who's the girl making moves on Stark?

If the trailer left you confused as to where the sequel is heading, we've broken it down for you including some answers to the very vague released plot and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it giant stuffed pink bunny and tattoo.

The film will follow the "Extremis" storyline.

There's a six-story comic from 2005-2006 follows the invention of a serum / virus, "Extremis." The serum is supposed to be used solely for military purposes to engineer a Super Soldier.

Parts of the "Extremis" storyline were used in the first film for Stark's origin story (the bomb exploding during his tour in Afghanistan, taking deathly shrapnel to the chest, etc.). 

The serum basically reboots the entire human system with better organs, faster reflexes and healing abilities among other heightened senses. Sounds great until you find out it's only compatible with about 2.5 percent of the population. 

We're betting the film will most likely follow the fallout of how this serum affects Aldrich Killian (involved with its creation), Tony Stark, the government, and particularly how The Mandarin sees it as beneficial.

There's more than one villain.

Sure, Ben Kingsley is being touted as the main bad guy, Mandarin.

However, how many superhero movies three films deep (Spider-Man, TDKR) do you know to play ball with one main antagonist?

We got a look at Guy Pearce who will be playing the role of Aldrich Killian, the geneticist who serves as one of the bad guys in the "Extremis" story arc.

As well, comic character Eric Slavin (James Badge) will be introduced in the film. In the comics, he goes on to become a RoboCop-esque cyborg villain Coldblood.

Pepper Potts gets kidnapped.

Could she be strapped to some sort of "Extremis" mechanism?
