The Oscars have come and gone, bringing the summer movie season that much closer. The film that is slated to kick off this year's run of summer blockbuster, Iron Man 3, continues to release new character posters.
Over the past couple of weeks, we've seen character posters for Don Cheadle's Iron Patriot and Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian. Last Friday, we got a look at Iron Man nemesis The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley and today, we kick off the week with Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts. Click on it for a larger version.
But there's more! Empire's latest issue finds Tony Stark on the cover along with three new images inside. Of the three, the one that will probably hold the most interest for Marvel/Iron Man fans is the last one, which finds Stark in a shirt with an A.I.M. logo on the front.
A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) is an organization of brilliant scientists dedicated to the acquisition of power and the overthrow of government by technological means. The group was organized during World War II as the scientific research division of the military organization Hydra.
Finally, there's new news regarding Iron Man himself. Robert Downey Jr.'s contract with Marvel concludes with his role in Iron Man 3, but does that mean we've seen the last of him?
According to an interview with Empire via ComicBookMovie, Downey Jr. said, "There's a little bit of soul reclamation going on. I feel that the first time I played Tony, I did it best. The affinity with Tony now is: how do you sustain something? I'm not stupid, I like to play ball, I love the company, I love the character, and the business side of things, I'm not picky about that either."
While that doesn't sound like a concrete affirmation that he'll return, he assures fans, "Tony's going to carry on. Avengers 2 already has a release date."
When asked how he feels about the possibility of being replaced by another actor to continue the Stark character, Downey doesn't seem too concerned about it.
"It would probably be the best thing in the world for me. You know, ego… but sometimes ego just has to be smashed. Let's see what happens. I take the audience very seriously – I feel bad when I see folks doing movies and the audience is like, 'Don't do that anymore.' I don't have to overstay my welcome…"
What do you think? Would you like to see Downey continue to play the Armored Avenger or would you like to see another actor take a shot at the role?

This is throwing me for a loop: I don't ever want Actor Robert Downey Jr. to leave the Role of IRON MAN/Tony Stark his very charismatic, eccentric and down right amazing talented in (everything!!) that Role he brought to vivid life on the big screen. Downey will be very difficult to replace...'it would have to be a slow poccess...'someone he would choice: which I hope will be aloooong time coming. I'm so looking forward to IRON MAN 3 (and 4, 5, and 6 etc.,.) great Poster of Gwyneth Paltrow. Also the AVENGERS saga's and SHERLOCK HOLMES saga's can't wait. Wow, Actor Robert Downey Jr. has alot on his plate!! Makes me concern 'cause I don't want him to get burnt out, there has to be some relaxing/catch her breath time inbetween those movies.
Yes I want RDJ to keep playing Iron Man! He's perfect. Everyone that has been cast fits their character so well (Chris Hemsworth as Thor anyone?), and he is the best example of that. I don't think fans will be getting sick of RDJ as Iron Man anytime soon. Keep being Iron Man!
For now I would like Robert Down Jr.to play Stark/Iron Man. eventually he would have to be replaced, but I would mostly would like to see him in Avengers 2 and a possible 3 at least, then find a new actor to play Stark/Iron Man.
It is going be hard to replace Robert Downy Jr.. He plays Iron Man so well. Hopefully he will still return for The Avengers 2.
