We previously saw an image still from the Iron Man 3 trailer that revealed a tattoo of Captain America's shield on the back of the Mandarin's neck.

How about another?

Check out the following image of former Iron Man director Jon Favreau who is - or was - reprising as Happy Hogan in Iron Man 3.

I'm no expert, but Jon Favreau sure looks D.O.A. to me.

Update: Not sure, but that doesn't look like blood coming out of his nose to me, if that's what it's meant to be.

I know it's been said that the Mandarin might try to poison the population of the world with the Extremis virus.

This might be it.

Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.
