Recently on the 'Iron Man 3' front we've seen character posters featuring War Machine and the film's bad boys, Mandarin and Aldrich Killian. But it's time to add a feminine touch to these proceedings, hence a new one-sheet featuring none other than Pepper Potts herself, Gwyneth Paltrow. Check it out after the break!

Keeping with the theme of Iron Man's helmet being noticeably separate from the rest of his suit that kicked off with the Mandarin poster (let's hope Tony's head isn't inside that thing), the Pepper Potts design (courtesy of Empire) features a somber-looking Gwyneth cradling a cracked and battered shellhead. It's obvious from the advertisements thus far for the Shane Black movie that Iron Man is going to take a severe beating in this one.

Perhaps a vacation in outer space is just what the doctor ordered.

Opening on May 3rd, here's the synopsis for 'Iron Man 3':

'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?

If you think back to those LEGO 'Iron Man 3' sets that were revealed perhaps a little too early, this poster may be hinting at a surprise turn for Pepper. (Click here to see what we mean.) But what do you think of the new poster, and what do you think it means for 'Iron Man'?
