The first Iron Man 3 trailer description may have just been leaked and we have the reported details.

According to Ain’t It Cool News, the Iron Man 3 trailer description below was emailed to them from a fan who calls himself Dr. Evil. Sure, it sounds a bit amateurish, but the details are spot on and it lines up very closely to the footage that we saw at Comic-Con this year. This could be a clue that we’ll see an official Iron Man 3 trailer in theaters quite soon.

The reported Iron Man 3 trailer description:

It opens with a voice over of Tony Stark talking about how the events of New York (I’m assuming the Avengers Movie) changed him, and how he’s just not ‘into it’ anymore. First scene is Iron Man with battle damage, lying down amid rubble and taking off his faceplate to show a bleeding Stark. Scenes of him arguing with Pepper Potts in the armory (cool shots of alternative Iron Man suits including the red white and blue), press conferences, Tony looking solemn, Tony talking with someone who looks like a psychiatrist, and a short shot of Don Cheadle in military uniform (no War Machine in the preview).

Also, one scene of who I presume is the Mandarin, forcefully landing and cracking the ground. However, it looked like a silver Iron Man. I was unable to tell in the brief view who it was (maybe due to unfinished CGI). We then get a voice over from Ben Kingsley, talking about how there are no heroes and how he will teach everyone, especially Stark, a lesson. This is over scenes of the alternative Iron Man suits getting blown up, Stark going into surgery, and a fleet of helicopters launching missiles which blow Stark’s home up (the CGI looked nearly finished) and sending Stark and Pepper into the sea below. Then a close up of Kingsley with no helmet in the Mandarin armor.

It ends with Iron Man underwater, swimming towards what looks like his “arc reactor.” Then the Iron Man 3 logo, then Stark walking in the snow dragging a large bag, then the logo again.

All and all, a somber trailer, dark and humorless, which seemed more in tone with The Dark Knight Rises than with any of the other Iron Man movies or the Avengers.

If you use this, call me Dr. Evil.

So, what do we think? Is Dr. Evil to be trusted? His details are sound and the footage is similar to what we’ve heard from those who’ve seen the Comic-Con footage of Iron Man 3.

What we do know is Iron Man 3 is finishing its filming within the next month and is headed for theaters May 3, 2013. Let us know what you think of the reported first Iron Man 3 trailer description.
