First Look At The Radically New ‘Iron Man 3′ Armor


Back at Comic-Con 2009 Marvel Studios commanded a dominating presence on the expo floor by bringing the hall of armor for Iron Man 2 with all three of Iron Man’s armor suits from the first film. After following up in 2010 and 2011 with Thor’s Asgardian throne room and the bridge of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier from The Avengers, respectively, Marvel is back with another film set recreation.
This one is an upgraded (read: expanded) hall of armor for Iron Man 3, containing seven suits from the franchise thus far. Now, there are eight suits on display…


 After hearing whisperings of Marvel Studios shipping in something special related to a new armor suit for Iron Man 3 just for today, Marvel confirmed the buzz by sharing a photo from their Comic-Con 2012 booth before the show floor opened to the public and standing front in center was a never-before-scene armored suit, with quite a unique look.

Unlike the standard Iron Man armor designs that use red as its primary color, this one inverts the color scheme by embracing a golden design.

Check out the video:

 The golden design is seemingly inspired by the Extremis concepts from the comics, of which this film is sourcing story details from and the gold is quite a contrast from the usual red-focused designs. The question now becomes, will Tony Stark have other suits in addition to this one or will that all be saved for War Machine and the villains? What does this mean for Iron Man’s armor in The Avengers 2 and will we ever see an adaptation of the Hulkbuster armor?
