Things have gotten dark for Tony Stark since the events of "The Avengers:" He's dealing with a frightening villain named "The Mandarin." He's got reporters bugging him. His house has been blown up. Shit's bleak. This is what happens when Jon Favreau isn't around to direct the flick.
(Although it does promises to show Gwyneth Paltrow looking like this, so it should have its bright moments.)
Still got it.
