Marvel has released a brand new TV spot for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, revealing a fairly large spoiler for fans awaiting the film’s May 3rd release. A lower quality “cam” version surfaced online earlier this week, alarming many fans who questioned why the studio would reveal such an exciting moment in the film this early in the marketing campaign.
The latest TV spot reveals that Tony’s love interest, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), will indeed be suiting up in the Iron Man armor at one point in the film. While the TV spot appears to show Potts wearing one of Tony’s suits, fans who are familiar with the Iron Man comics know that Potts eventually receives her own set of Iron Man armor after she’s wounded in an explosion and cannot survive without the help of a cybernetic suit – much like Tony Stark – and takes on the name Rescue. As to whether or not the film touches on her Rescue origins is another thing entirely as she may just be donning the armor for a brief period of time due to other circumstances.
Nevertheless, it’s sure to exciting to watch on the big screen this Summer!
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?
Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton and James Badge Dale and is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 3rd, 2013.
