As we move closer towards the release of writer/director Shane Black’s highly anticipated sequel Iron Man 3, Disney/Marvel are starting to unveil more and more of the film in their marketing by way of clips, images, trailer, TV spots, etc. For those of you that are trying to avoid seeing as much of the film as possible before it hits theaters theaters, though, the studios have released a bit of marketing that promises not to spoil any of the plot. Today, Disney has unveiled some LEGO-centric posters for the film, which are exact replicas of the previous Iron Man 3 posters with one tiny difference: a LEGO Tony Stark stands in for Robert Downey Jr. It’s a fun tie-in to the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets that are in stores now, and it’s neat to see how Tony’s numerous suits of armor are portrayed in LEGO form.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3rd.

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