On the heels of the Super Bowl spot teaser, Marvel has released a new poster for Iron Man 3. The marketing continues to suggest that director Shane Black will put Tony Stark through the ringer in the sequel.  An unmasked, anguished Robert Downey Jr. is posed strikingly upside down in the frame, hurtling toward the ground in a suit that is on fire and falling to pieces.  I am curious to see just how far they will push our hero—the synopsis claims “Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands”—before he puts the pieces back together and saves the day.  At the very least, it should lead to a fresh direction in the series.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben KingsleyRebecca HallGuy PearceJon Favreau, and James Badge Dale also star in Iron Man 3, in theaters May 3.  Check out the poster after the jump.

Official synopsis:

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?
