Comic-Con 2012: Marvel Unveils Tony Stark's New 'Iron Man 3' Armor

Iron Man 3

We've gotten an official shot of Tony Stark's growing sets of armor as the sequel Iron Man 3 is in production. Some official concept art debuted just last week and is being handed out here at Comic-Con, but today Marvel made a big debut of the newest set of armor at the Marvel booth. We're currently waiting in Hall H for the Marvel panel (with plenty of surprises in store), so we'll have a lot more from the sequel coming soon, but this new shot of the armor should hold you over. Honestly, I think it doesn't have enough red, but this might be a suit Stark uses in the middle of the movie before getting a better one. Check it out!

Here's the new set of Iron Man 3 armor from the Marvel booth via The Avengers Twitter page:

Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) from a script he also wrote with British TV writer Drew Pearce ("No Heroics"). Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark along with Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau reprising their franchise roles from the first two films. New cast members include Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. Story details are unknown at this time but stay tuned. Disney sends Iron Man 3 to theaters next summer on May 3rd, 2013.

    uh....ok i knew it was going to be different but it looks like they just reversed the colors of MK6 with replacing the Triangle for a Circle...

    Iron Man movies are fun. I like how each movie has a new suit. But seriously, that is a nude color its not even gold. If it was gold or like a cool Matte color it would be cool but this is ugly and very disappointed. I hope this is only like a 15 minute screen time suit. I love iron man movies but they always have little flaws in them like this and also they have the lamest villains. Iron Monger didn't even go through a serious character arc to become a villain. Whiplash it was like Rouke just wanted a paycheck and a side gig because he thinks that he is the greatest actor since the wrestler and now it is a guy who is in a iron man suit but is painted as the american flag...seriously. Plus i love how in the first movie Tony said that no one will be able to have the power of the tiny arc reactor he has looks like he is selling it at sams club with the villans getting it and using it for their own suit.

      The "american flag" suit is based on the Iron Patriot armor, which was actually worn by Norman Osborn (a villain) during a major arc in the Marvel U. Besides, the studio claims the "american flag" armor is supposed to be a new War Machine suit, not that it makes the whole thing any better.
    • Jericho
      keep in mind this is the start of an arc called the Armor Wars, obviously they figured out how to get one or steal one since he had removable reactors in the 2nd movie....
    • Dominic A
      It's champagne gold . I think i like the silver/red better with this armor
  • Vince
    Epic failure.
    • JBrotsis
      don't understand why they feel its necessary to change the suit? you don't seem tony changing the suit in the comics
      • Secundus
        Um, you do realize that there have been over 40 different suits in the comics? Tony is sorta like an inventor, so his whole thing is the constant improvement of the suit to meet the ever-changing and advancing threats within the Marvel U. In fact, the new suit for the "revision" of the Marvel U coming this winter and next spring will have a black and gold suit with red lights:

          it very well may be a new suit case armor or an emergency equip one, look how the joints are more exposed, it could also be that extremis stuff people mention since it looks more snug....
        • LosZombies
          Id rather they would have gone with that black an gold suit, thats looks so badass! But red and BEIGE?.. Hopefully it is just some sort of backup suit.. :/
    • delwick
      suit looks like crap. Seems like this movie is shaping up to be another X mean No money out of my pocket on this one.
  • Daiteechu
    Almost looks like the Bleeding Edge armour. Apart from the colours being a little flat it's not that bad. Excited to see where this is going
    • Secundus
      Finally, a comment from someone who obviously reads the comics.
    LOL! I wish they had his HULK Buster version.
  • I like the design, I even like the color placement, but I do not like how plastic it looks and I do not like how the gold is tan
  • Xerxexx
    Eh...perhaps it will look better in the film.
  • Big Boss
  • I NO LIKE! :-(
  • I had no idea Shane black was directing. That's awesome. Shitty suit though.
  • Zanpher
    definately fail
  • moutchy
    I don't like it either. Like many others, I dislike the color. The design is nice, but it should have more red than gold.
  • northdude81
    didn't they 'test screen' the suit with fans? it's ugly as hell!
  • BinaryChaos
    If the suit is that ugly I can imagine how awful the movie is going to be. If they have no sense in designing a respectable suit then they have no sense in story telling or directing I mean dam man!!! Even the old designs from the comics looked better than that ughh....
  • rocky728
    I think it looks great. A radical departure but awesome none the less. I bet the suit is for a specific purpose and won't be his regular anyway. Just like the Hulk-buster had a specific purpose
    • Jericho
      it might be a new suitcase armor, look how more of the joints are exposed...
  • Zade_92
    Guys dont worry it looks alot better in the footage that was released at comic con
  • redskulllives
    what have they done to you iron man?????????? why????????????
  • its sooooooo gold
  • mooreworthy
    Patience everyone.
