A new poster for Iron Man 3 has hit the Internet, and it has comic book fans wondering:

Is the Iron Legion on the way this spring?

As you can see here, the promotional art doesn’t merely feature Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark; it also depicts several Iron Man suits taking to the sky behind him.

In DC lore, the “Extremis” virus gives Stark the ability to mentally control these suits, which leads to the aforementioned Iron Legion.

Also pictured in the background of the poster? Tony’s home exploding, which we see in this Iron Man 3 trailer.

Also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingley, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall the blockbuster hits theaters on May 3.
