Gwyneth Paltrow gets Iron Man 3 poster

Let’s hear it for the girls…

The ‘Iron Man 3’ hype-machine has been a testosterone heavy affair so far, so it’s about time we get a look at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts in the latest character poster for Marvel’s Phase Two kick-off. Take a look below…

OK, so it’s not all about Paltrow here - cradled pretty ominously in her arms is Iron Man’s roughed-up helmet, sporting a noticeable face-length gash.

It fits in nicely with Marvel’s brooding theme on this poster run: kicked off at the Super Bowl with Stark dramatically crashing out of the sky, we then got a things-are-about-to-get-serious-faced Iron Patriot, a sneaky Aldrich Killian and just last week a glimpse at Ben Kingsley’s badass Mandarin.

Let’s be honest, things don’t look too good for our metallic man do they?

‘Iron Man 3’, directed by Shane Black, opens in the UK 26 April 2013.

Check out the trailer below, and keep an eye out for the same mangled mask.
