Robert Downey Jr. returned to action for Iron Man 3 last week, and now the first official set photo from the film has arrived, courtesy of Marvel Studios.
It's not a great look at Tony Stark, but we do get to see a whole lot of Iron Man suits. Will Iron Man 3 reveal the Mark VIII "new red and gold" suit?
In Marvel's comics universe, the Iron Patriot is Spider-Man nemesis Norman Osborn, but the rights to various Spider-Man characters remain with Sony Pictures. That means Marvel Studios had to pick a new identity for the character, and it seems they've chosen Savin (aka Coldblood-7) for the role.
What does this have to do with Warren Ellis' Extremis storyline, upon which Iron Man 3 is reportedly based? Absolutely nothing!
Iron Man 3 arrives on May 3, 2013.
