"I'm here on a mission: fighting back." While Iron Man 3 is already in theaters in Europe, it finally arrives in US theaters everywhere this Friday. We've been posting posters galore for the superhero sequel, starring Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, but there's a few more to feature. Mondo has dropped their two posters, one with a silver/gold variant, for Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black. Phantom City made a glow-in-the-dark armory schematic, going for $45, which is awesome. And Martin Ansin made the other, which even if you don't like Mondo is still undeniably better than any official poster we've seen for this Marvel movie.
"To me, Tony Stark's real superpower is his intelligence and ingenuity," says Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative. "With the Iron Man 3 armory poster, I wanted to showcase that by featuring a schematic chart of all the Iron Man suits with Stark himself front and center." Great design, here is their armory full print:
Next, here are the two prints by Martin Ansin for Mondo's Iron Man 3 series. Each of these are 24"x36".
Here is the variant "silver" version of the Martin Ansin Iron Man 3 poster. Which of these do you like more?
To see all the new Mondo Iron Man 3 posters in full, visit USA Today or stay tuned to @MondoNews. They will go on sale online this Friday at a random time. These also compliment the IMAX Midnight IM3 poster.
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.
Watched it and Its quite a refreshing take on the franchise.

I like the first one, the other two are pretty good, but seem to be playing at Mondo's typical art style.

The film is brilliant. It is one of the smartest most clever movies I've ever seen. What they did was risky and most fanboys will be be pissed but it was a smart move and it shows how Shane Black had the balls to do what he did with the franchise. Plus, Kevin Feige and MARVEL agreed to it so it wasn't all on Shane. I was caught off the edge my seat when they revealed that plot point and it was amazing. It took me a while to process that it had actually happened and what was the realiy of things.

Can't wait for it! Let's hope it spring boards of the Avengers.

I am really tired of designers/illustrators ruining great artwork by running it through the "instagram filter" Seriously, WHY IS THIS SO POPULAR? I think it cheapens the work! Such a shame:(
