New Iron Man 3 Pictures Soar In

Fresh from the latest issue of Empire...

If you've been reading the latest issue of Empire - out now, fact fans! - you may well recognise the following four Iron Man 3 stills, now released onto the internet by Marvel HQ.

The pictures don't reveal a huge amount of plot, but it's great to see certain photos close up, especially War Machine in his new Stars and Stripes-inspired armour, complete with rectangular arc reactor window. Note the "LT. COL. JAMES RHODES" tag on his chestplace.

Then there's Pepper Potts holding Iron Man's broken helmet in her hands; Tony, erm, looking at something and the ever-beautiful Rebecca Hall looking rather distressed despite the nice Adidas trainers she's sporting.

Take a look at the stills for yourself below, and let us know in the comment box just how excited you are about Tony squaring off against Sir Ben Kingsley's Mandarin come April 23.

Of course, this is just a tiniest slice of what's in the actual magazine, so be sure to check out all four pages of Iron Man 3 goodness in the latest issue – and for more details on that, take a look at this little sneak peek here, as well as the covers below.
