Yesterday a new promotional image for Marvel’s highly anticipated Iron Man 3 was released online. The new armor — which was unveiled at Comic-Con — is very different than the previous versions, but it’s been growing on me. There’s also the fact that it looks good in motion from the footage we were shown in Hall H.

Apparently in a week the marketing for Iron Man 3 will finally begin with a teaser trailer and poster. Along with that news, the third movie is described as a “technological crisis thriller”. Sounds quite different than the first two films, but it was a given after director Shane Black mentioned that they’re taking elements from the Extremis story arc.

Iron Man 3 is slated for release May 3, 2013.

I cannot wait.
