Screen Rant has posted photos from the set of Jon Favreau's Iron Man, starring Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges. The site introduces the images as follows:

Here are the first batch of photos from one of the shooting sets of Iron Man provided by a visitor to Screen Rant. There are a great bunch of set shots here shot out in the desert, although no actors are present. I've included a close-up of the Stark Industries logo.

"Just had a nice tour of the desert/Iraq cave set located in a remote California desert canyon. Tons of US Military surplus relabled with 'Stark Industries' stickers, stenciled labels, arabic and Cyrillic writing. Everything had desert camo netting covering it. The 'cave' was impressive and blended very well with the natural terrain."

Based on the long-running Marvel comic book series, Iron Man tells the story of Tony Stark, the enigmatic heir to the Stark Enterprises fortune. A driven inventor and executive who seems to have it all, Tony is haunted by his dark side. Though he commands his empire by day, by night he secretly becomes Iron Man, the living embodiment of decades of defense spending and innovation. Strapping on billions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art armor and weaponry each night to fight crime, terrorism and corporate espionage, Tony begins to crack under the strain of his fractured lifestyle and must ultimately confront the one enemy he can never beat -- himself.

Iron Man arrives in theaters on May 2nd, 2008.
