Villain The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley, is still a bit of a mystery  but we get some more glimpses of his nastiness after the first trailer in October heard him say:  “Some people consider me a terrorist, I consider myself a teacher ” and “heroes, there’s no such thing”.

Robert Downey Jr’s billionaire Tony Stark is again charged with saving the US, but the trailer reveals his main target to protect is Pepper Pots (Gwyneth Paltrow), “the one thing I can’t live without”.

He will be backed this time by an army of his flying metal men.

When his “personal world is destroyed”, Stark will be motivated by “good old fashioned revenge”.

Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce will also star when it opens in the UK on April 26.
