While fans are still trying to recover from the onslaught of awesome that was The Avengers, it seems that the first official bit of promotion for the upcoming Iron Man 3 has hit.
This set photo officially-released by Marvel shows Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark standing in the middle of his ever-growing collection of Iron Man armor. It's a fitting image, as in this film, Stark will make a completely new kind of connection with his armor by way of nanotechnology.
Leaked set photos from last week showed what appears to be a character in the Iron Patriot armor from the comics. (Sans former Green Goblin, Norman Osborn, who lives in Sony's Marvel Movieverse.) However, we can also expect an array of new faces, most of which are villains like Firepower, Coldblood-7, and Ben Kingsley apparently cast as iconic nemesis, Mandarin.
Iron Man 3 directed by Shane Black hits theaters May 3, 2013.
