'Iron Man 3': Marvel Releases Tony Stark Holiday Photo
Billionaire playboy Tony Stark apparently has a soft spot for holidays.
Marvel has released an Iron Man 3 holiday image featuring Robert Downey Jr.’s character stranded in the snow -- a shot alluded to in the first trailer for the film.
From what we know of the flick, this shot takes place in a section of the film during which Tony is forced to drag his apparently nonfunctioning Iron Man armor behind him. It's not exactly celebration time, but it does make for a picturesque holiday card.
Marvel Studio’s Avenger’s follow-up is being directed by Shane Black and also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Ben Kingsley. It’s slated for a May 3, 2013 release.
