Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian Lands His 'Iron Man 3' Character Poster
What more could you want on a poster of a "brilliant geneticist" posed perfectly? Its got it all: sunglasses in hand, sparks flying (but why?), lens flares (well, almost - bright lights), intense orange and blue hues, an excessively tanned cast member, an obnoxious glance back. As much as I've been enjoying the posters for Marvel's Iron Man 3 so far, these character sheets are a disaster. The shot of Don Cheadle as Iron Patriot was boring, and this one is worse. Thanks to a Facebook debut of this poster, we finally get a look at Guy Pearce as geneticist Aldrich Killian, creator of the Extremis armor system that Tony Stark uses. See below!
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) working from a script that he co-wrote with Drew Pearce. Actor Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark and Iron Man in this sequel described as a technological crisis thriller in the midst of international war, taking place after the events of The Avengers. Sir Ben Kinglsey is playing Iron Man's arch nemesis Mandarin and Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Dale Dickey, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau all co-star in the Marvel Studios production. Disney is bringing Marvel's Iron Man 3 to theaters starting May 3rd this year.

Wow, I never would have recognized him without his name on the top of the poster. He looks like a weird Bruce Willis/Brad Pitt mash-up. >.< This isn't a photograph, is it?

Heavily photoshopped, but yes.

Looks more like a comicbook cover than a movieposter......wait a sec......

Kinda looks like an older Justin Hammer here. Maybe I'm crazy? No one else sees it? Okay...

No, it looks like a younger Peter Weyland.

You two are both equally correct.

I do not think their target audience would have any appreciation for this poster.

whoever the marketing team for this movie should be fired, none of their works seem professional.

Remind/enlighten me: I feel awful having to ask with being such a huge Marvel fan (especially during the whole Avengers Phases) but Guy Pearce's character, Aldrich Killian, is he good or bad towards Tony? Obviously he invents the Extremis armor we see Tony using so in a sense you could say he's good...but in all the trailers he looks so sinister in his motions and we see him kissing Pepper. So I'm really unsure and would like to know his role in the upcoming movie...?

In the comics, he didnt exactly have a HUGE role, he basically engineered the extremis VIRUS and sold it to a group of terrorists...he then feels guilty and kills himself. I highly doubt his role will be at all similar in this besides creating extremis.

Technically he invents the Extremis virus- not the armor. Tony builds the new armor after he undergoes the Extremis process.

Why does every movie poster these days have sparks in them. There's nothing in this picture that indicates sparks would be fizzing near him.

Orange and teal again... I hope Guy had a voice coach to work on his American accent this time.

Though the movie itself sucked (forget its name the one with the space prison) Guy pearce nailed the cocky american accent in that.

Lockout? I'll have to watch that one and see what he's like.

It plays out like an issue of 2000AD or Heavy Metal-it's an OK rental.

looks like paul walker to me.

That is a pic of Guy Pierce? A bit too young, I'd have thought. It looks more like Steve Innes, another Aussie actor who incidently, is Godfather to Jason Clarke's, yet another Aussie actor, kids.
