Despite appearing in three movies since 2008, people are still clamoring for more Iron Man. And next summer, the character will appear in the third installment of his own solo movie series, Iron Man 3. Now, courtesy of Marvel, we have four new images to share with you from the movie that show off the mood of the film, as well as give us a clear look at the Iron Patriot.

Most striking is the image of Iron Man’s battle-scarred faceplate. More symbolic than anything, this is a clear indication that Ol’ Shell Head is going to be put through the gauntlet in this movie. We also get a glimpse at both Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and our first look at Rebecca Hall as Dr. Maya Hansen. But we're most intrigued by the Iron Patriot. Not much is known about what his role in the movie is, but we’re loving the garish armor. Check out the images below.

Iron Man 3 will hit theaters on May 3, 2013.
