First Official Iron Man 3 Pic Online

Tony's in his happy place

It may not be the juicy, what-can-it-mean rush triggered whenever those random paparazzi set pics from a big film in production hit the web, but it’s something… The first official picture from Iron Man 3 has arrived and you can check it out in the gallery below.

We’re in familiar territory here, with Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark back in his workshop. Seemingly the security of his sanctum sanctorum has been breached and Tony is unaware that brand new Marvel nemesis Clapper Man is striking!

In reality, it’s a chance to pore over the suits standing in their usual places to see if any clues can be found as to what we can expect from Shane Black’s first stab at the Iron Man universe.

Returning veterans Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle are joined this time by Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, William Sandler and Ashley Hamilton.

Iron Man 3 will rocket onto our screens on May 3 next year.
