Film Poster Friday #21: Iron Man 3 Update

Iron Man 3 Character Poster

Two more Iron Man 3 character posters were released this week, and they’re a couple of corkers.

The Gwyneth Paltrow / “Pepper Potts” poster – which was released first, I think – suggests that at some point Iron Man / Tony Stark is going to be assumed dead. I Like that the focus of her gaze, and therefore that of anyone looking at the poster, is directed at the helmet

The Iron Man poster is especially great, giving further weight to my previous assertion that he’s not going to have an easy time of it in this movie. He looks really beaten up and his beautiful playboy’s house is going up in flames, and yet… his heart-thingy (what IS that called??) still glows brightly, his fist is clenched and by look on his face he’s “mad as hell and isn’t going to take it any more!”

Add to that the inclusion of a number of other “Iron Men” joining the fray in the background (apparently it’s the Iron Legion, but not being a comic geek I have no idea who they are), it looks like this film is going to have one hell of an epic dust up at the end.

My anticipation levels just went up another notch!
