New Iron Man 3 Still Arrives Online

That'll take a while to buff out...

If there's one thing the world can take from Iron Man 3's trailers and stills so far, it's that our man Tony Stark doesn't have the best time of it after the events of The Avengers.

He may have got the girl now, but the top of Stark tower is in ruins and now his Californian pile has been totally Lethal Weapon 2-ed by Ben Kingsley's The Mandarin. Then there are the shots of everyone's favourite genius billionaire playboy philanthropist in a seriously duffed up suit, no better displayed than by this new snap below.

A guessing man would presume this is after Tony's been blasted into the water and before he takes off his armour and carries it on a sled through the snow. But that's what a guessing man would say.

Non guessing men (or women, for that matter) will have to wait until further details come to light - perhaps in an upcoming issue of Empire, even - or another trailer drops.

In the meantime, don't forget that Iron Man 3 will be setting down in cinemas on April 26, 2013.
