Iron Man 3

Well isn't that cute! Oh wait… it's Iron Man's head?! Or maybe just his helmet. This can't really mean what we all think it might mean, right? Marvel Studios has unveiled the fifth character poster in their series for Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark once again. As much as I wanted to be done with these, this one shows Pepper Potts played by Gwyneth Paltrow. And although she's in an awful pose and her face is barely visible, it's all about the face in her hands, if you know what I mean. This film seems to get darker the more we see from it. There's another Empire cover shot below, too.

Here's the new, oddly similar Iron Man 3 cover design, featuring Tony Stark, straight from Empire today:

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.

"Awful pose"? I dunno, I really love this poster. Except the unnecessary sparks that we see everywhere on movie posters.

The Pepper one? She's just... looking down. Her arms look weird, the sparks. There's just... not much excitement or any interest to her pose.

Well, I don't think they were going for an "exciting" poster for this one, but more for something tragic and emotional. She's looking down at the helmet she's holding, which makes sense to me, as if she's just found it, damaged, and not knowing what happened to Tony, probably thinking he's dead. I still don't see how her arms look weird, she's simply holding the helmet close to her body.

I honestly have no feeling about posters any more...'good' or 'bad'...they don't really matter. Just eye-catching, printable advertisements for the release date. A release date that all of the initiated know ANYWAY.

General Marvel Phase Two request: DEATH. Death, death, and more death. It would be nice for the heroes to not always kick total ass all the time and for them to suffer some legitimate casualties outside of 'We lost a lot of innocent bystanders'...Coulson essentially served that purpose, but it seems like they are going in the 'not really dead' route with him and the SHIELD show.

I agree completely, but at the same time you cant just go kill off Tony Stark or Captain America. But it would be a refreshing wrench in the gears to see someone like Pepper Potts or dare I say Nick Fury die very would change the rules to Marvel flicks, because whenever your watching them there is no peril or intensity, you know that they are always going to survive.

Yeah, I wasn't meaning the main heroes, for better or worse they are kind of untouchable. BUT the supporting cast should be far more expendable.

General Marvel request: MORE HULK. He's not getting his own solo-film in Phase in my opinion, they need to make up for that. I want references made to Hulk and Banner...and a Hulk cameo or two(in story, or as news footage or something) would be great. The nice thing about a Hulk appearance is that it can be done without Ruffalo, thus not using one of the films on his multi-film contract. So yes, don't let The Avengers sequel be the next we see or hear of Hulk/Banner. Beyond THAT, more Hulk applies for that film too...since he's not getting a solo film, I'd very much like for him to be more front and center in THAT film.

I know....but I can't wait that long, Phase 3 is too far off. Heck, if it were up to me. Banner would be in Iron Man 3, Banner and Hulk would probably be in Cap 2, Ruffalo would star in a prequel mini-series that fleshed out the origins of the MCU Hulk, and Banner/Hulk would get more focus than everyone else in The Avengers sequel....which would THEN lead to Planet Hulk and the World War Hulk storyline for The Avengers 3.

I don't think Hulk works well as a main character, but as a supporting character he's by far everyone's favorite.

Matt Peloquin on Feb 25, 2013


In my opinion, Banner and Hulk work whenever they are written and performed well. Ruffalo captured a vibe to the character that really worked, and I think it would work just as well on it's own.

Chris Groves on Feb 25, 2013


I hope you're right because I love that green monster.

Let's deal with him in S.H.I.E.L.D.
