Questions! Questions That Need Answering

The full trailer for Iron Man 3 premiered online in the wee hours of this morning, but the thing we’ve fixated on most in the hours since is not the hints of Tony finally enduring some significant psychological ramifications from his crime (ok, alien) fighting, the promise that his world will be pulled down, or Ben Kingsley‘s at-little-too-similar-and-a-little-too-soon-to-not-be-compared-to-Bane voice over. No.
