Iron-ic


Well, boy howdy, looka dat, it's the first shot of Tony Stark's ironclad underoos from next summer's Iron Man motion picture, courtesy of Ain't It Cool News. From the look of things, it sure seems like director Jon Favreau has gone out of his way to preserve the comic book aesthetic, while updating things ever-so-slightly for the 2Ks. Now, this isn't the final armor, mind you, but rather the initial suit first created by Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) while being held in captivity as a means to escape. Presumably the design of the later, more-streamlined armor is being held in publicity reserve for later, but this shot sure is cause for optimism.
