A Bleeding but Leggy Rebecca Hall in a New Iron Man 3 Pic

I’m really curious to see what kind of role Rebecca Hall has in “Iron Man 3”. She’s not the love interest, of course, that’s still Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts. Hall’s character is Maya Hansen, a fellow scientist of Tony Stark’s and, from what I’ve read, former lover who calls him in to help out with some problems she’s having. This, in turn, leads to the film’s whole “Extremis” angle, with super soldiers, bad guys pretending to be Chinese, and what have you.

So how did she end up with that cut on her head? Or more importantly, since when did nerdy scientist gals started looking like Rebecca Hall? God Bless you, Hollywood.

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

“Iron Man 3” also stars Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Dale Badge, Jon Favreau, Ashley Hamilton, and is directed by Shane Black (of “Lethal Weapon” and “that dork with glasses in ‘Predator'” fame).

Prepare for the film’s new trailer at this year’s Super Bowl, and the movie on May 3, 2013.
