Marvel has released a new image from Iron Man 3, and this one doesn’t involve Tony Stark or explosions of any kind. Instead, we get a look at the scientist character played by Rebecca Hall sporting a minor head wound and hanging out in what looks to be a lab of some sort. We don’t know much about who Hall plays, but I’m happy to see that director Shane Black has fleshed the cast out with another (hopefully) strong female character. Whether she’s friend or foe, we’ll find out soon enough.
Hit the jump to take a look at the image and to catch up on the recent barrage of Iron Man 3 news. The film opens in 3D on May 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Iron Man 3:
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?
