Exclusive New Images and “Entertainment Weekly” Cover for “Iron Man 3”

Entertainment Weekly recently released five (5) exclusive images from the next Marvel film, Iron Man 3. Some these exclusive images give fans a look at Tony Stark in action and there is a behind-the-scenes photo. The cover features Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow as their characters Tony Stark and Pepper Pots.

In this film, we get to see Pepper Pots wear the iconic iron suit, which works with her character arc presented in the original comic books. Pepper Pots ends up growing from a damsel in need of Stark’s protection to a hero, known as Rescue, that fights along his side. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Paltrow had this to say about her character’s journey: “It’s sort of the comic-book version of a Cinderella story. She starts timid and sort of cleaning up after Tony, and then she evolves into full strength and a superhero.”

Iron Man 3 also stars Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Sir Ben Kingsley, Jmaes Badge Dale, and Paul Bettany and hits theaters May 3 (tomorrow)!
