Why Can’t Iron Man Sleep? (VIDEO)

RDJ's 'Iron Man 3' Injury
Robert Downey Jr. suffers ankle injury on set.
With less than three months from it’s theatrical release, Walt Disney Pictures has debuted brand new Iron Man 3 trailer to satiate comic fans’ appetites.

In the freshly-released teaser, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) seems to be facing tough times as a new villain named The Mandarin encroaches on his territory — like blowing up his seaside mansion with a missile.

“Things are different now,” he says to his assistant-turned-girlfriend, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). “I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without — and that’s you.”

And big things might be happening for Pepper too.

As the trailer depicts Pepper stepping into a metal contraption designed to transform soldiers into other Iron Man-like troops, comic enthusiasts are hoping this theory comes true when Iron Man 3 hits theaters May 3.

Do you think it’s time for Paltrow to step inside the Iron Man suit? Let us know below.
