Iron Man 2 - Mark IV Armor

The real Iron Man 2 armor? Yes, I mean the actual suits and armor units that Legacy Effects, the effects company started by Stan Winston, built for the production to use in Iron Man 2. As in, these are the real bad boys that are working pieces of machinery, maybe not with all the guns and repulsor beams and stuff, but at least they're visually impressive. Our friends at Making Of have a little photo tour of these glorious suits of armor and I've featured a few of my favorites below (the rest are on their site). As a last-minute bit of kick-ass hype for Iron Man 2, I hope they get you in the mood for some Marvel madness this weekend!

Legacy Effects' Iron Man 2 Armor

With the world now aware of his dual life as the armored superhero Iron Man, billionaire inventor Tony Stark faces pressure from the government, press, and the public to share his technology with the military.

Iron Man 2 is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Jon Favreau, who previously directed Made, Elf, Zathura, and the first Iron Man. The screenplay for this was also written by an actor, Justin Theroux, who became a screenwriter a few years ago and co-wrote Tropic Thunder's script. Paramount will be bringing Iron Man 2 to theaters everywhere on May 7th this weekend. It's a very entertaining follow-up to Iron Man - have fun!

    Great flick (8.5/10). It loses a half point from the myriad of plot holes.
