‘Iron Man 3’: Tony Stark Has New Armor, But What Else? — POSTER

The first poster for Marvel’s upcoming Iron Man 3 is fairly sparse. Reminiscent of the first official still from day one of director Shane Black’s foray into the superhero genre, the poster is a calm before the storm. We know there is a bigger conflict in Iron Man 3 than Tony Stark deciding which outfit he’s going to wear — we saw glimpses of the film at Comic-Con. Ben Kingsley talked a big talk as the film’s main villain The Mandarin. But what will the movie serve up that can top the previous two?

More Robert Downey, Jr. is always a pleasure. The actor returns as Mr. Stark, master of quips, along with Gwyneth Paltrow as his love interest Pepper Potts and his armor-wearing friend Rhodey, played by Don Cheadle. Yesterday, we saw a 17-second taste of what’s to come from Iron Man 3 (the full trailer debuts tomorrow, Tuesday the 22nd). Everything is being played close to the chest in terms of story and action. While the first trailer should pack plenty of eye-popping spectacle, we want to know from you: what does Iron Man 3 need to serve up to keep things interesting?

Check out the poster below, and weigh in with your own thoughts in the comments.
