One of the problems with Iron Man, is that once he’s encased in his suit, he seems fairly invulnerable. While they bashed him up a bit in the previous movies, you always felt that ultimately the suit would win out. However it seems they might be trying to show us in Iron Man 3 that just because he has a metal casing, he’s still a mortal man, and his victory is guaranteed.
The new pic above sees Tony Stark looking very battle-damaged and rather glum. Will he be able to fight back? Umm, yes.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Marvel’s Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?’
Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyenth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, and Rebecca Hall all star, with a May 3rd 2013 release already set.
