Entertainment Weekly published this morning the first look at Tony Stark's armor from the forthcoming "Iron Man" film. Starring Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, "Iron Man" began shooting in March under director Jon Favreau ("Elf," "Made") and is expected to see release in May 2008.
The armor, which is very faithful to that of recent Iron Man comics appearances, is designed by Stan Winston. According to Favreau, "Robert was very bullish on wearing the suit whenever possible." However, Favreau added that after seeing the heavy and restrictive costume, Downey Jr. may no longer be "such a fan of that idea."
