Robert Downey Jr. and New Iron Men Suits Show Up on the Iron Man 3 Set (SPOILERS)


In case you haven’t heard, Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3″ suffered a slight setback recently when star Robert Downey Jr. took an injury to the leg. Nothing too seriously or life-threatening, apparently, since he’s now all rested and healed and back on the job. And also back on the movie’s Florida set, where we get a great look at Iron Man’s new suit, the Mark XLVII, fighting alongside new ally Iron Patriot.

As always with set images…


You’ve already seen the Iron Patriot before, of course, but this is a really good look at it alongside the Ironster himself. Check them out below, check them outers.

“Iron Man 3″ finds Tony Stark aka Iron Man battling terrorists and a scientist who has invented a new, dangerous nanotechnology capable of creating supersoldiers. It will co-star Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rebecca Hall, and James Badge Dale.

Look for it in theaters next Summer.

    The Iron Patriot/War machine armor looks pretty good. I like the new IM armor too. The revresed colors are interesting and looks like his last suit before he changes to the upcoming Black and Gold he’ll be sporting in the Marvel Now! comics. Marvel Now! is the new status quo for the Marvel U, not a reboot like New 52 or anything but after Avengers vs X-men there will be major changes. ANYWAYS the IP armor is cool, and I like the idea that the War Machine armor becomes the IP armor for the Government or just another Armored hero that’s a soldier or former soldier, hence the Iron patriot which sounds nicer than War Machine, that name doesnt exactly say peace keeper.

      I still wonder what the story will be considering Iron Patriot being Osborne in the comics

      • Dedpool

        Nothing to do with Osborne here, I think that the military just decided to not use the name War Machine but needed something catchier than Variable Threat Response Armor or whatever, so Iron Patriot worked and has ties to Stark.

        • Juggernaut

          That isthe most logical set up. I hope that there is a tie between Cap and the design of the new Government sponsored armor.
          Rhodey’s armored alter ego was never even called the War Machine armor in the movie. That name was referenced by Tony about Rhodey wanting to be “The Warb Machine” during their fight as a nod for the fans. A similar reference was made by Obediah Stane in the first film about he and Tony being “Iron Mongers”.

            Oh I know, thats why I said the government wanted something catchy cause Variable Threat Armor sounds boring. LOL. and yeah a mention that the return of Cap inspired the new paintjob and updated armor would be cool.

        • Wolfdaddy21

          Yea I know it’s not Osborne seeing how sony has those rights, just the Iron Patriot was such a huge plot point involving Osborne that I know they had to make up a whole different plot surrounding the IP armor.
