This would appear to be the week of Iron Man 3, at least where marketing is concerned. Yesterday we showed you a look at the teaser for the trailer that will debut online tomorrow morning. Today, we get something that will last a bit longer: a number of images from Iron Man 3 that show some of the most buzzed about elements from the film. There’s also a very fancy teaser poster. All of which can be seen right after the jump, alongside first looks at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin, an official shot of the Iron Patriot armor and a little bit of the new Tony Stark haircut.
The images are courtesy of Facebook, USA Today and Entertainment Weekly. In the USA Today article, Marvel’s Kevin Feige talks at length about the story in IM3, including the fact that Tony Stark “He basically loses all of his toys and is forced to just use his mind to rebuild and to face his biggest enemy. He’s ultimately the engineering superhero. He’s so charming and so flamboyant that sometimes you forget that’s what he is: ‘Hey, kids, learn this stuff and you can maybe build an Iron Man suit.’”
If the message gets through, maybe we’ll see a spike in engineering students. Marvel is our economic stimulus.
