Get a look at a mysterious Guy Pearce in new Iron Man 3 poster

A new Iron Man 3 poster has been released, giving us a pretty kickass look at newcomer Guy Pearce getting ready to mix it up in Marvel’s biggest standalone franchise.

Pearce has signed on to play Aldrich Killian, who works with scientist Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall) developing the Extremis technology at the center of the sequel’s storyline.

The studio has been leaking out some pretty great character posters in the leadup to the May 3 release date, and it's great to finally get a look at Pearce in action. Director Shane Black definitely has him looking cool here, so it’ll be interesting to see how Pearce fits into the Marvel world.
