What do you do when the half of the Super Dome loses power during the Super Bowl? Stick in an ‘Iron Man’ commercial to save the show! The disappointment of having the big game postponed due to the partial power outage gave way to the sheer excitement of watching the newest spot for ‘Iron Man 3.’

The spot below is actually the extended version that aired during the game and features an introduction by Robert Downey, Jr. From the looks of the one and a half minute trailer, the first film of Marvel’s Phase 2 of their Cinematic Universe is proving to be more action packed than ‘The Avengers.’

Check it out below and let us know what you think of ‘Iron Man 3!’


Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

‘Iron Man 3’ lands in theaters on May 3.
