Superheroes need to take breathers. They can't fight bad guys all day long, and when they do take a break, it's nice to have a living room to chill out in. At least that seems to be what Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark is doing in the picture above, in one of three news stills released for the upcoming movie  'Iron Man 3.'

And here they are, via Marvel:

Though these pictures give us a good look at Iron Man's suit, there's not much revealed here that wasn't known before. It does confirm (as we've known for a while) that the film is set around Christmas, which is something director Shane Black has done with most of his movies. Otherwise, they're just teasing what we hope is one of 2013's best summer movies.

'Iron Man 3' hits screens May 3, 2013. And if you didn't know, here's the film's synopsis:

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. 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. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
