New Look At Iron Man’s Armor In Avengers: Infinity War


In just a few short hours, Marvel will debut the next trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, as it’s expected to drop during tonight’s Super Bowl. What exactly it’ll show off is obviously unknown right now, but you can bet that we’ll be seeing more of all the new costumes that our favorite heroes will be sporting.

From Spidey’s Iron Spider suit to Cap’s new shield and even Thor’s new weapon, almost everyone is getting an upgrade of some sort, but the one that has fans most excited is perhaps Iron Man’s Model 51 or Model-Prime Armor. We’ve caught glimpses of it before, of course, and now, thanks to some more tie-in merch, we’ve got another look. And this time, it’s a clear and crisp shot, unlike many of the others that’ve surfaced.

As you’ll see in the gallery down below, it’s not a huge departure from what we’ve had in previous movies, but the gradual evolution of Stark’s Iron Man tech has been seen across every one of his appearances thus far and it’s clear that Infinity War is going to be no exception. We also know that he’ll have wings on the back of it and some sort of arm cannon, too, which should no doubt come in handy in the fight against Thanos.

For those unfamiliar with this particular version of Tony’s armor, the suit is considered to be one of his crowning achievements in the comics. Floored by Riri Williams’ homemade effort, Stark sets about creating a shape-shifting armor that bends and molds to his every need – hence the wing-like thrusters affixed to the suit’s rear. Assuming Infinity War stays true to the comics, and this promo art is a solid indication of what’s on the way, then Robert Downey Jr.’s Avenger will also be able to change colors on a whim.

We’ll have to wait a few more months to see if that ends up being the case, but finally, after 10 years and 17 films’ worth of build-up – Black Panther notwithstanding – Avengers: Infinity War is finally prepped and ready to deliver a huge climax on May 4th. The fight against the Mad Titan won’t end there, though, as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will assemble one final time the following year, on May 3rd, to take down Thanos once and for all.
