Even Tony Stark has to settle down a little during the hectic holiday season. Not easy for the man to do, obviously, since he's constantly battling villains and attempting to get out of his own way, but today Stark has offered up a sweet holiday message to all of us eager to see anything 'Iron Man 3' can dish out.

Check it out after the break!

As you can see below, Tony Stark has wished all of us "Happy Holidays," which is mighty nice of him. As we've glimpsed in the trailer, there's a significant snow-covered setting in the film, and that's where this photo was taken. (In the preview shown at Comic-Con, it was implied that the sequel was at least partially set during Christmas.)

Also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Don Cheadle, 'Iron Man 3' comes out on May 3rd.
