Marvel is starting to dole out the character posters for Iron Man 3, with Don Cheadle rockin' last week's Iron Patriot character poster, and now today we have our first good look at Guy Pearce as one of the film's villains, Aldrich Killian. Though he resembles Sam Rockwell's villainous businessman from Iron Man 2, Killian is actually a scientist who, in the comics, was responsible for distributing the Extremis (super-soldier) serum to a terrorist organization. In the case of Iron Man 3, that terrorist organization is led by Ben Kingsley's the Mandarin.
Previously Pearce has said his role is somewhat of a cameo, so don't expect to see too much of him. He told Vulture, "Prometheus and Iron Man are really kind of cameo stuff, so the experience of shooting them… I mean, on some level, it’s tricky because you feel like a bit of an outsider. You don’t really live the experience that you do when you’re there all day every day with everybody. But at the same time, it can be more fun sometimes because you’re just working in concentrated spurts.”
