Here's your holiday card from Iron Man

Think you opened all your holiday cards this year? Here's another -- from Iron Man, or at least the superhero Avenger's real identity, billionaire Tony Stark.

The card, showing Stark (Robert Downey Jr., in the role he was born to play) standing out in a snowy field, possibly about to catch snowflakes on his tongue, was tweeted out the day after Christmas from the official account set up for Stark.


Movie blog Cinema Blend points out that "Iron Man 3" writer/director Shane Black seems to love Christmas themes. Four of his screenplays, including "Lethal Weapon," were set during that holiday season, and "Iron Man 3" footage shown at Comic Con shows Stark enjoying Run DMC's 1987 single "Christmas in Hollis."

Stark isn't wearing his armor in the snowy shot because, according to the trailer, it's become non-functional.

"Iron Man 3" opens May 3, and features Stark battling well-known comic-book villain The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). Gwyneth Paltrow returns as love interest Pepper Potts and Don Cheadle is back as Stark's best friend Col. James Rhodes, aka War Machine.
