“Iron Man 3″ poster reveals a falling Tony Stark

With an “Iron Man 3″ Super Bowl TV spot premiering on February 3 and the movie hitting theaters in only three short months, the hype machine is going full steam for the first installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two.

In anticipation of the Super Bowl spot, Disney has released a new poster from the film that shows the title character in dire straights. Tony Stark can be seen falling from the sky as his armor gets stripped away, a look of terror on his face.

Of course, “Iron Man 3″ is supposed to be a lot more lighthearted than these promos let on. Marvel President Kevin Feige has said time and again that this movie is going to be reminiscent of the first “Iron Man” in tone.

“I would say that the exercise of this film is very much standalone, more so than any ‘Iron Man’ film since the first one. But because we are in Phase Two and we’re heading towards another ‘Avengers’ movie, there’s certainly a road that’s being paved — you just might not notice it,” Feige told MTV News of how “Iron Man 3″ will fit into the greater MCU. “While you’re driving on the road, not knowing where it’s going, you might not realize that there are road signs and signals and lane changes that we’re setting up now — they might not be readily apparent the first time you see the movie.”

“Iron Man 3″ is based on Warren Ellis’ “Iron Man” comic book series “Extremis.” The flick is directed by Shane Black and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi and Ben Kingsley.

Pearce’s Aldrich Killian looks to be the movie’s big bad as a co-creator of the Extremis serum, which creates a new breed of supersoldier. He and partner Maya Hansen, played by Hall, opt to place the serum in the hands of terrorists and set them up against Iron Man in order to prove the strength of Extremis. It was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Kingsley will play The Mandarin. “Iron Man 3″ will hit theaters on May 3, 2013.

IMAX and Marvel have revealed that “Iron Man 3″ will come out on April 25 in IMAX theaters. The movie is being digitally re-mastered in IMAX 3D, though there likely will be 2D showings as well. “Iron Man 3″ is now the fourth Marvel film to be released in IMAX, following in the footsteps of “Iron Man 2,” “Thor” and “The Avengers.”

“Marvel and IMAX are a perfect one-two punch and the ‘Iron Man’ franchise has become a global phenomenon that resonates with fans around the world,” Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment Greg Foster said in a press release. “We look forward to moviegoers experiencing this highly-anticipated next installment of Tony Stark’s latest adventures in IMAX 3D.”

“Iron Man 3″ is based on Warren Ellis’s “Iron Man” comic book series “Extremis.” The flick is directed by Shane Black and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi and Ben Kingsley.

“Iron Man 3″ releases new, foreboding still

Tony Stark is not looking to great in the newest still from “Iron Man 3.” Badly beaten and with his mask cracked, the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist actually seems like he’s at as low a point as we’ve seen him since he was kidnapped in “Iron Man.”

The image comes courtesy of Stitch Kingdom, and seems to imply that some serious and terrible things are coming Iron Man’s way. But that goes against what we’ve heard about the movie so far. Though the trailer makes it seem like “Iron Man 3″ is a very serious movie, actor James Badge Dale recently admitted that it’s not.

“‘IM3′ is really a dark comedy with a little bit of farce,” he told Glow magazine, via Just Jared. “The trick is to be able to have the audience relate to you. Director Shane Black gave me a long leash. We had a great time. Robert Downey Jr. loves the process of acting and loves to be creative with a director and his fellow actors.”

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige echoed similar sentiments in the past, saying, “It’s not a serious movie, but we seriously dig into exploring more of Tony. The trick is just trying to make great movies. We try to make them all great, all different and all fresh. What you’ll see in ‘Iron Man 3′ is some very unique directions that were taken.”

“Iron Man 3″ is based on Warren Ellis’s “Iron Man” comic book series “Extremis.” The flick is directed by Shane Black and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi and Ben Kingsley.
