Over the weekend, fans got to see the briefest glimpse of footage from Marvel's upcoming Iron Man 3 in preparation for the trailer's debut tomorrow. Marvel apparently doesn't want you to forget about the film in the DAY between those events, and have released a handful of the first official images from the film.
I can't say I'm complaining. I love getting new stuff for films I'm looking forward to. Disney/Marvel, however seem to throw everything at you at once. So it feels like you're getting overloaded, and then we'll have NOTHING for the next couple months, then overload again in the months leading up to the release. Obviously it's a strategy that's working for them. Anyway, let's move on to the pictures!
Here's the teaser poster, that just landed, and it seems fairly standard. Doesn't give away anything about the plot, but it's neat seeing all the steps (suits) Iron Man has taken to get to this point. Be sure to click on the image for the full size (it's pretty large).
These two were dropped by Marvel this morning.
This group of pics came from USA Today who had an article about Iron Man 3.
Lastly, here's your first real good look at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Frankly, he looks pretty bad ass.
So what do you guys think of all these images? Love 'em? Hate 'em? Don't forget to tune in tomorrow when the full trailer will arrive tomorrow!
