New 'Iron Man 3' Poster Has Battle Damaged Tony Stark & Iron Legion
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:
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.

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...

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!!"

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.

Busy, but in a good way.

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...;)

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.

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.

Love it! I'd fork out $15 to see whatever was going on here.

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.

Trying to fight the urge...I dont think I can hold it back any longer...and complain!
