"Iron Man 3" sees Tony Stark go up against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds.

The trailer for Marvel Studios' "Iron Man 3" is set to hit next week and the excitement continues to rise. Whether it's the promise of a glimpse of the trailer on the official Facebook page or new concept art, there's a big uptick in anticipation. To that end, Disney fan site Stitch Kingdom has released the full official synopsis of the "Iron Man" follow-up, which sees Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) on a journey of self-discovery following the destruction of his personal world.

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
