Iron Man 3

Hot on the heels of character posters featuring Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), Iron Patriot (Don Cheadle) and Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), it's Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) who takes center stage in this new official poster for Iron Man 3. Looking like he's seen better days, a battle damaged Iron Man seems to be quite pissed off as his house explodes in the background. But the more important element is the Iron Legion in the background. That's a group of suits that are believed to be controlled by Stark through nanotechnology from the Extremis storyline that inspired the sequel. Look!

Here's the new poster for Shane Black's Iron Man 3 from Yahoo:

    • Lagoya

      • Mdiddles
        His right hand looks really bad
      • dgeet
        the left hand with no armored glove on...its practically the size of his head

      The phrase "terrible poster" has so little weight. These things are flashy billboards to show off the film's release date essentially...they are just reminders 'this movie, this day'....the 'details' don't matter at all. Posters being 'crappy' by definition of hands being disproportionate will have 0 impact on the film's box office performance.
      • dgeet
        yeah i know that...just stating that this isn't a good poster.
      • Scopedog
        Agreed.
  • javier
    for a site that seems to focus on superhero info, i'm surprised there hasn't been an article on RDJ comments that IM3 might be his last in that role. the poster looks meh.

      He's already signed on for The Avengers 2 and 3 so this statement is not true...
    • Cody W
      He simply said "I dont want to overstay my welcome" and then every other movie news outlet blew it out of proportion saying "RDJ LEAVING AS TONY STARK!?! O NOZ!!"
  • Aaron Randall

    When a poster with the helmet on?
  • dgeet
    I wish it didnt look like concept art with a photoshopped picture of RDJ's head on it

    I love the concept of the Marvel Cinematic Universe simply because it's an inhibitor to constantly rebooting every time you get a new actor.
  • DAVIDPD
    Busy, but in a good way.
    • Scopedog
      Yeah...like the hints of the Iron Legion in the background. I have no problems with this poster--but that's just me, I guess...;)

    Has anyone else noticed it's the same colored sky and backlight that The Avengers poster had? Anyways I like it! but I just wish we could get a poster like the ones from IM1-2.
  • JJ King
    Love it! I'd fork out $15 to see whatever was going on here.
  • David Darida
    From the view of a designer, I can't say anything good about it...there is nothing to like really. Everything is so "photoshoped" too much of everything.
  • http://www.jimmylove.com/ Jimmy Love
    Trying to fight the urge...I dont think I can hold it back any longer...and complain!
  • McWetty
    I like it. And no random sparks!
  • DJROBL
    The welder took the day off!
