And now we know Iron Man’s address — it’s 10880 Malibu Point, Malibu, Calif., 90265.

That intriguing detail comes courtesy of a new clip just released from “Iron Man 3,” which sees Tony Stark standing up in a brash, public way (naturally) to the Mandarin, telling the villain, played by Ben Kingsley, in no uncertain terms, “I’m not afraid of you,” in front of a pack of TV cameras and photographers.

“I’ve decided that you just died, pal,” Stark says. “I’m going to come get the body.” And just like that, he pulls away in his white Audi.

Directed by Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”), “Iron Man 3,” due in theaters May 3, marks the first post-”Avengers” Marvel movie to see release in theaters, and the film opens with Stark struggling a bit to reintegrate into his posh Malibu lifestyle.

“He’s retreated somewhat into his workshop … where he tinkers,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told Hero Complex. “He builds a version of the suit and the armor that can assemble on him at a moment’s notice.”

But star Robert Downey Jr. seems to have effortlessly returned to the role — he’s on a promotional tour that kicked off last week in South Korea, with Downey celebrating his 48th birthday in spectacular Tony Stark fashion — tuxedo, throngs of admirers, you name it.

Following stops in Beijing, Moscow, Munich, Paris and London, the travel itinerary concludes with the Los Angeles premiere of the movie at the El Capitan in Hollywood on April 24, and a New York date for Downey on April 29.

It’s been a busy morning for Marvel news, with word officially that “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is heading into production toward an April 4, 2014 release.
