Say Hello To My Metal Friends: New 'Iron Man 3' Poster Reveals Alloyed Forces

Iron Man 3 Army

A new Iron Man 3 trailer will hit the Internets on March 5.  In the meantime, Yahoo! has posted this exclusive new poster, which depicts an army of iron men rising behind a clearly cheesed-off Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) whose armored suit is behaving like an iPhone that was accidentally dropped into a toilet. According to SlashFilm, this reveal may be a reference to the rumored climax of the movie in which Stark summons some multiple metal wingmen to kick some Mandarin pu pu platter, or whoever it is that's causing all the trouble in his life. 


Iron Man 3 ArmyThe website also reports that a snippet of that iron-army scene will likely be featured in the trailer that drops next week, which will be the last one before the movie opens on May 3.

Meanwhile, Yahoo! offers this interpretation of the poster.

But what's even more intriguing than the damaged suit he's wearing are the seven he's not. Streaking into the sky behind him are more armored suits, and while we don't get a very clear look at them, they don't appear to be any we've seen in the previous films.

The one directly above Tony's right arm has a grey and gold finish with spiky shoulders. Another directly behind his left shoulder is a bulkier suit with a gold, white and black appearance. Could this be the rumored "Deep Space Suit" fans have been buzzing about? A photo of an upcoming toy was released in late January with that description, which lead some Marvel acolytes to wonder if Tony might take a trip out into the cosmos, perhaps to meet up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, another comic-book team that will be getting their own movie in 2014.

I don't see Rocket Raccoon or Groot, who are both supposed to be part of the GOTG standalone, so I'm skeptical, but what do you think?  Let me know in the comments below.

  • Looks like the Iron Legion is coming. The lore is that Tony uses a new nanotech to enhance his body and gain the ability to telepathically (through this nanotech) control a legion of suits at once. Also, it looks like one of them is the Iron patriots (far middle left) and one could be Pepper's rescue suit, which has been rumored to appear.

      I don't know about all that, but wasn't the Mandarin a big player in the "Armor Wars" in the comics. If he found enough scraps (which 7 or so drones might be able to leave behind, knocked off in battle possibly, and still function individually) So could this movie although still possibly as outstanding as it's predecessors, be a big setup for the next 4 or 5 movies??? (I hope)

      I Never get tired of Iron Man.
