Iron Man 3 Guy Pearce Poster

About Aldrich Killian, from the Official Marvel Database:

"Dr. Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) is a brilliant scientist working for the FuturePharm Corporation in Austin, Texas alongside Dr. Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall). Together they developed Extremis, an attempt to create a new super soldier. The Extremis is a techno organic virus that completely rewrites the body's genetic code. It replaces entire organs making them more efficient. The virus also gives the body a sort of healing factor. The original Extremis grants super human strength, speed, endurance, reflexes and the ability to project electricity and breathe fire.

He steals a sample and sells it to a terrorist group. The group, based in a slaughterhouse in Bastrop, Texas, injects a willing test subject called Mallen. A bizarre physical change overtakes him; his horrified compatriots flee the room but lock him in it. The injected man's body, still lying in the Bastrop warehouse, is now covered completely in a bizarre layer of scar tissue.

Days later at Futurepharm Corporation offices, Dr. Aldrich Killian commits suicide at his computer; his suicide note informing co-worker Maya Hansen that he has stolen the Extremis serum for an undisclosed purpose."

Iron Man 3 was released May 3rd, 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale. The film is directed by Shane Black.

    Lol, @bawnian-dexeus. Some people just don't get the joke. Regardless, I agree with you. All these character pose posters with sparks in them is getting old.

    @bawnian-dexeus Guy is not in the Deathly Hollows, Bill Nighy was and so was Rhys Ifans, you probably got them mixed up with Guy. Guy has done films like Rules of Engagement and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
