Ya know, movie studios would save a lot of money if they just let the fans take care of the marketing.
The official posters for "Iron Man 3" are pretty cool, especially that one where bruised and battered Tony Stark is plummeting to Earth, a grim image that perfectly captures the super-high stakes of the billionaire industrialist/superhero's third stand-alone adventure. The poster where Stark emerges from the water as his Malibu HQ burns behind him and the sky is filled with other Iron Men is pretty sweet, too.
But when it comes to comic book movie posters, no one can do it quite like the fans ... especially the ones who know Photoshop. ShortList recently commissioned 12 of their favorite artists to conjure their own "Iron Man 3" posters, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. Check out some examples below, and head over to ShortList for the rest.
