Teasing the one-minute extended (read: extensive) Iron Man 3 Super Bowl commercial, Marvel Studios released a super cool one-sheet featuring the titular hero sporting a battle-damaged Mark XLVIII armor, falling from the sky. Since then, Don Cheadle got his own Iron Patriot poster, Guy Pearce - who describes his role as a cameo - got one for his character Aldrich Killian, and most recently, Ben Kingsley caught our attention posing as the villainous, yet suave and stylish Mandarin.
Now it's time for Stark's most trusted partner from the trilogy to step into the spotlight.
Gwyneth Paltrow plays Stark's main love interest and CEO of Stark Industries, Pepper Potts, and while the jury is still out on whether or not the Oscar-winning actress will get a chance to wear her own set of armor on screen, she at least has a new Iron Man 3 poster all to herself. Click for the full poster:
The image pays homage to the scene from the trailers where Pepper holds a broken Iron Man helmet after the attack on Stark's mansion.
The second new image/poster is the cover for the latest issue of Empire Magazine and features Stark, in his shiny new duds, seemingly posing for GQ. What a clean face for such dirtied and worn armor. Click to see full version:
