Photo Set: Tony Stark Builds the Iron Man Armor

January 15, 2008

Photo Set: Tony Stark Builds the Iron Man Armor just released a couple of new photos from the upcoming Iron Man movie, and instead of running the two of them individually, I realized there is a full set of construction photos out there. Either I'm mistaken or it looks like Paramount is putting out a series of photos showing Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., constructing his Iron Man Mark III armor. Of course, they may just be the best looking photos from the movie and are coincidentally all from the same construction scene and not actually coordinated, but either way, they continue to excite me.

I've really got high hopes for Iron Man and everything that they've put out for it so far, including the trailer, kicks ass. I'm 100% convinced Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect guy to play Tony Stark. Let's hope my expectations aren't so high that they can't be met.

And although there are still more construction steps missing, here is the completed Mark III armor.

As a final special treat, here is the other photo from Marvel that features director Jon Favreau on the set with Robert Downey Jr.

Iron Man is directed by Jon Favreau (seen in the photo above), of Zathura and Elf previously. The movie hits theaters everywhere this summer on May 2nd.

nice photos. pretty basic though. i was hoping for something more. any thoughts on the harry potter and the deathly hallows being broken up into two films (possibly) Alex? or on Chris Nolan saying Harvey Dent is "the backbone" of The Dark Knight, not the Joker?

Keith, I'm familair with both of those news stories but didn't run them. The Harry Potter split is just a rumor and way, way too unconfirmed to run at this time. Maybe if it comes up again with some official confirmation then I'll run it, but for now it's not worth it. As for The Dark Knight thing, again, it's too short of a quote to really run. If I were to run an article about it, I'd prefer a full explanation from Christopher Nolan or way more info. It's very interesting, but I'm sure there will be a LOT more on that as we get closer to its July release date. In fact, expect more on it even earlier than that. 🙂

i understand. i see the need to split the film so Im really hoping that one rings true. And thanks for teasing me with the prospect of new TDK info 🙂
