Following Taylor Swift's insult of two of my heroines, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, I needed a pick-me-up yesterday. (Seriously, man, Tina and Amy are pretty much the most likable people ever and now Taylor and I are never, ever, ever getting back together. Tim says Taylor is now on his dunzo list. This is serious stuff. But Amy's response was on point and perfect as usual, restoring everyone's faith in humanity.)
Thankfully, Iron Man/Robert Downey Jr. came to the rescue, as usual. The official "Iron Man 3" trailer was released yesterday and it. looks. awesome.
An army of new suits! A new villain! Don Cheadle! People falling out of airplanes! Tony's desire to protect Pepper! Slow-motion explosions! Revenge! What more can you ask for? The only thing I'm unimpressed by is at 0:56 in the trailer some guy is using a flip phone to take a video.
I mean... who still uses a flip phone? Oh well, I'm willing to let it slide because everything else looks so great. April 25, where are you?
