New 'Iron Man 3' Promo Art Shows Off New Armor

Is this the Mark XLVII armor?

On October 23, word is the trailer for Iron Man 3 will debut. That's not too far off now but of course we want to see anything we can as soon as we can. A new piece of promo art has surfaced over at CBM showing the 'Mark XLVII' armor in action.

Kind of makes you want to high five your computer screen, right? We've seen some 'leaked' images pop up before. This image has also been seen but in a much smaller, lower quality version. I'm curious what the 'general public' of moviegoers will think about the armor with less red featured. I'm also very curious to see what new features this armor will have in the movie.

Hopefully we'll see something once the trailer is released.

Iron Man 3 will be released (in 3D) on May 3, 2013. You can see the release date for the other Marvel movies HERE.

Interesting armor

Posted by TheCrowbar

@G-Man: Don't lie you know you high fived the screen...I did too...

My only gripe about this armor is I would've liked to see more repulsor nodes like on his Bleeding Edge armor, but other than that I'm fine with it. Can't wait to see the movie, hope they ramp up the action though Iron Man 2 left me a little wanting.

Looks a lot better here than when we saw it on display.

3 is going to feature the extremis virus from what I know, that and the original synopsis I read for the movie makes it seem like it will be Tony Stark vs That Armor

The armor doesn't look as bad when I first saw it. Maybe it's because I gotten use of the yellow color overtaking the red on the armor.

Looks snazzy.

I can't wait for the trailer.

Looks a bit more extremis inspired. I don't know why they just don't go the whole way and use the comic book extremis look.

I love the new armor, and despite some people's complaints about there being too much gold on the suit, I personally think the new color scheme sets the armor apart from Tony's previous armors.

Looks pretty cool but it's still a little hard to get the full view. I'm pretty interested to see any new upgrades and what he can do this time.

Posted by FoxxFireArt

It looks cool, but please, oh please, don't let them call this "IRON MAN 3D".

It is bringing me round to the new style, initially I hated it but I'm not so sure now.

I'm with you on this one!

I still don't like the new armor. I don't understand why they had to change it

@mattwing87: Simple, to sell more toys.

100% agree with you.

Hopefully this movie won't be one big advertisement for the next avengers film like Iron Man 2 was.

Posted by Saturnus

Maybe the added gold coloration is a clue that the movie will take place in space? Iron Man initially added gold to his suit to prevent it from freezing in the upper atmosphere

Posted by YoungJustice

I still don't like the color pattern. Looks muddy.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

Looks awesome!

Oh, he reversed the colours. He's so innovative!

Posted by Pwok21

I wasn't so sure about it before but that Gold/Red armor looks insane.

Hyped to hell for this.

Posted by They Killed Cap!

I wish it was a little more of the traditional armor.

Don't do that because some people might think I have your terrible opinion.

Edited by Gambit1024

I'll give my final judgement it when I see it in action, but based on the actual images I've seen, I'm not digging it so far.

Edited by Ama_Sama

This is a much better render compared to the original pictures. At least here the gold isn't dull and flat, but to me... It's just not enough red. Call me old school, but Tony's never had this much gold in a suit before. Maybe it'll grow on me when this hits theaters, but I still prefer red as the dominant color in the Iron Man suits.

@Teerack: only if they don't know what FTFY means.

Posted by badaboop

How'd they get to 47?

Posted by cmaprice
XLVII?! He must have had a lot of failed armors between films!
Posted by Teerack

@Fantasgasmic: I doubt the majority of this forum community does to be honest. :P

Posted by blueninjapanther

Awesome, I can't wait for this movie.

@Teerack: While I definitely agree with the sentiment, please watch the f-bombs in the future.

Posted by Xanni15

I'm not liking this armor as much as the others, especially from other images that have been leaked. I know the movie will be awesome so I guess I'll just have to live with it.
