by  in Comic News, Movie News Comment

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 promises all kinds of armored adventures. There’s Tony Stark in his armor, James Rhodes sporting a very flag-friendly Iron Patriot look and even Pepper Potts getting a turn in some heavy metal. But that’s far from it.

Yesterday we got a look at the Silver Centurion and Shotgun armors, but today there’s a pair of new ones to feast your eyes on,courtesy of the film’s Facebook page. Above you can see the Mark 17 Artillery Level RT suit, also called “Heartbreaker,” while below there’s the Mark 38 Heavy Lifting suit, also known as “Igor.”

Some people are comparing the Igor armor to the Hulkbuster one often seen in the comics. You might also recognize Igor there from the end of both the domestic and international trailers.


Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Jon Favreau, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. The film opens May 3. Here’s the official synopsis:

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
