Or, well, the back of him, anyway.

Marvel/Disney has released your first official look at Robert Downey Jr. in the lair of one Tony Stark in the upcoming “Iron Man 3″, set to be written and directed by Shane Black. The image comes along with the official announcement of start of production on the comic book sequel. But then you probably already know that the film is currently shooting, since we posted SPOILERY set images from the movie last week.

The production will shoot in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, Miami, and Florida in the States, before jetting off overseas to China to wrap up.

Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark/Iron Man, alongside Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. They are joined by newcomers Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Dale Badge, and Ashley Hamilton.

“Iron Man 3″ jets into theaters May 3, 2013. Until then, here is the first image of RDJ from the set:

    Cool. ANyone know what the armor on the far left and far right of the second pic is?

    • Tadeuszrydzyk

      Far left is Mark I (from the caves in Iron Man) and far right is Mark VII from The Avengers(used by Tony during final battle)

        Love how he keeps the battle damaged IM suits. So i take it we’re back in Cali, and this is the redesigned armory and workshop after he had to remodel.

        • Juggernaut

          That sounds about right. He and Pepper are constructing the new Avengers tower in New York so he must be back on the West coast.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            Yeah I liked how they did that. All the letters of STARK were destroyed except the A which looks like the Avengers “A” and him giving the tower over to them makes sense too , as Avengers Mansion and then the recent tower (which I’m sure this was modeled after) were both Stark’s.

          • Juggernaut

            The destruction of the STARK sign was awesome!. The end of the movie where Tony and Pepper are going through the virtual plans where they show a few different files and open the one with Cap’s shield was cool. Brief but cool. I’ve seen the movie in the theaters four times and each time I’ve tried to see something but it is so quick you can’t catch anything. an’t wait for Blu Ray to stop it frame by frame and try to see some of the specifics. It looks like each team member will have a level to live and train in. Very cool.

      • Juggernaut

        Oh okay. The one on the far right is the “rocket” armor. What about the one that is two to the left of the suitcase/silver centurion armor? It looks like it has some kind of wiry design on it???

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          Battle damaged I think. I think that’s the one from the end of the first film.

          • Juggernaut

            Okay. That makes sense. It’s funny that the armor in the first film was a deep maroon and dark gold and has transitioned to bright red and yellow. I’m personally more of a fan of the darker tones myself.

  • M@rvel

    What if the reason mandarin is playing a sorta behind the scenes type villain is because they are gonna introduce him as one of the main villains in avengers 2?? Like a masters of evil type thing goin on.

  • Art R

    @ M@rvel – Avengers 2 will definitely be a version of The Thanos Imperative because: A) Thanos appeared at the end of The Avengers, B) the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie will in all likelyhood be their first encounter with Thanos, which leads to C) Avengers 2 has the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians Of The Galaxy to save Earth from Thanos finding the Cosmic Cube.
