[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6654:]]The Iron Man 3 World Tour is currently underway with Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., leading the charge.

The actor kicked off the tour in South Korea and most recently made his way to Bejing, China.

While there, Marvel Studios gave the Chinese audience an exclusive preview of the movie, which featured Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Spoilers follow.

The Iron Man 3 scene featured the first time that Pepper Potts donned the armor and saved Tony Stark from an attack by the Mandarin, as THR reports:

In a sequence showing an attack on the Stark residence by Ben Kingsley’s villain, The Mandarin, the Stark residence is seen collapsing and the Iron Man armor inhabited by Potts; she then rushes to Stark’s rescue, saving him from a falling piece of debris. “I’ve got you,” Potts says as she leans over a vulnerable Stark, who responds in kind: “No, I got you first.”

And another scene that was part of the 20-minute preview featured the well-known Chinese actor, Wang Xueqi, who plays Dr. Wu.

In another act aimed at whipping up the local press’ enthusiasm for the film, the 20-minute screening session began with a scene showing Dr. Wu calling Stark on the phone from his Beijing office as a television news bulletin shows him and a crowd of local schoolchildren cheering Iron Man as he launches into the air.

Wang Xueqi also described his character, Dr. Wu,  as "the man who saved Tony Stark," giving us more of an insight as to his role in the movie.

Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert DowneyJr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce and James Badge Dale.
