Iron-Man-3-Character-Poster-Gwyneth-Paltrow-is-Pepper-PottsIron Man 3 will kick off Marvel’s Phase Two in just a few months’ time, and the anticipation couldn’t be higher. Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is reuniting with Robert Downey, Jr. here, and the partnership promises to be nothing short of immense.

Since the awesome extended Super Bowl TV spot that debuted earlier in the month, we’ve seen a handful of character posters for Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, and Ben Kingsley. And now Marvel have released the latest in the series, giving us a fantastic new look at Gwyneth Paltrow, who of course reprises her role as the brilliant Pepper Potts.

“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?”

Downey, Jr. is once more joined by an awesome ensemble, led by Paltrow, Cheadle, Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi, and Kingsley, with Paul Bettany reprising his role as the voice of JARVIS.

Black is taking over the helm from Jon Favreau, directing from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce (the upcoming Sherlock Holmes 3, Godzilla).

Iron Man 3 will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on 26th April in the UK, with its US release date set for 3rd May. This is going to be absolutely epic. I cannot wait. Here’s the latest character poster in the series to help make that wait just a little bit easier.
