In a little under three weeks, we’ll be getting the first piece on the Marvel Phase Two puzzle when Iron Man 3 hits theaters. Lately, we’ve been getting so much from the film to hype it up, but only recently has the focus been shifting from the characters that we’ve come to know and love to the fresh new faces that will be popping up in the new film.

While we learned a bit more about Chinese actor Wang Xueqi’s Dr. Wu earlier this week, Fandango has just released a new featurette to get us more acquainted with some of the other characters like The Mandarin, Aldrich Killian, and more. You can see what the cast has to say about their new film and their characters in the video below:

Seeing how excited Sir Ben Kingsley is for ‘Iron Man 3’ makes me even more excited to finally lay eyes on it. Also, RDJ makes quite the claim when he says that this new movie is the most emotionally satisfying and entertaining one yet. Shane Black’s first Marvel movie certainly has a lot to live up to, but so far everything that we’ve seen has been pretty sick. We’ll see if it all lives up to the hype when it finally hits theaters next month.

For more information on ‘Iron Man 3’, here’s the official synopsis:

‘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’ starring Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, and Guy Pearce opens on May 3, 2013.
