As we all wait to see what Marvel have in store for us tomorrow with a specially created TV spot for the Superbowl in the US, they have today released a new image just to keep us ticking over while we wait.
The new image see’s newcomer Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen, and while not much is know about where she fits into the story of Iron Man 3, there is no doubt it will be a crucial role. The character first appeared in the “Extremis” arc in the Iron Man comics. Check out the image below, and be sure to keep an eye out for that all important Superbowl TV spot, it should hopefully go on-line soon after airing tomorrow.
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), and Black also co-writes with Drew Pearce. Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Marvel’s The Avengers) as the iconic Super Hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow (Iron Man,Iron Man 2,) as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2) as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau (Iron Man,Iron Man 2) as Happy Hogan. Iron Man 3 continues the epic, big-screen adventures of the world’s favorite billionaire inventor/Super Hero, Tony Stark aka “Iron Man.” Sir Ben Kingsley will be playing the role of the villain, The Mandarin, and Guy Pearce will play the role of Aldrich Killian.
Iron Man 3 kicks off Marvel’s Phase Two on 26th April 2013.
Marvel Studios’ “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?
