Iron Man Will Have 2 Suits

irman.jpgMore Iron Man news today, looks like Stark will have 2 suits in the movie; the Original Grey and the Red and Gold suit. We get the following quote from Favreau and the scoop from

Favreau said; “Let me confirm a few things: The movie will contain both the gray suit and the gold and red. The light you see in the photo on Robert’s chest in the USA Today article is the chest piece glowing through his shirt. He is in captivity and forging the mask of the Mark 1.”

This is no surprise to me; I figured the movie would have at least 2 suits. I am thrilled the Mark 1 suit looks so kick ass, and am anxious to see the gold and red suit. I love robot exo-suits and it is my dream to have one when I am a senior citizen. Some want to retire on the Greek isles – I want to be a cyborg.

Getting to wear the suit on screen would be kick-ass …for a day; then you would start to get hot. The stories from the Robocop shoot were nuts – Weller would lose pounds of liquid every day from wearing the Robocop outfit. I hope they have come up with a means to air condition the suit for Downey Jr. In any case this is fun news and I get more excited about this project by the day.

  1. ‘I wont lie, the only reason this story caught my attention was because i thought the headline read – “IRON MAN WILL HAVE 2 SLUTS”‘
    LOL…good one Face…that’s classic

  3. Favreau’s got a reputation for steering clear of CGI and using mostly practical effects. He’s got a real love for the way they did things in Hollywood before CGI. I got a kick out of the forced perspective stuff he did in Elf when he could have easily made Bob Newhart tiny and dropped him into composite shots. Don’t sell him short. He may have some mechanical marvels for the screen.

  4. Cousteau,

    Of course there’ll be a cliffhanger, big or small. They like to leave comic book movies open-ended, that way there’s the possibly for sequel(s).

  5. This is good news, it adds realism if the hero has a kind of first attempt and then refines it later, such as spidermans makeshift costume. Its very close to the first Iron Man story, hopefully though it wont have such a horrendous stereotype villian.
    I wish Vader in ROTS had a rudementery first suit and developed it through the movie, rather than ‘Oh look I have this breathing suit lying around already designed.’

  6. they’ll use CGI obviously just like in Superman Returns

    I guess Stark will be in captivity during the first 30/40 minutes of the film and the rest will be him transforming into Iron-man.

    what do you think, will the film have a cliffhanger?

  7. Will there even be a suit-wearing Robert Downey Jr.?
    Or will they just animate the whole thing all together?
    They obviously have to use CGI for all scenes where Iron Man is in action (or even moving at a moderate speed for that matter) so why not do it all digitally? I’m talking about the Mark 2 version, not the Mark 1, that should be a built costume.

  8. i’m getting more and more excited as well. i’ve never been a big iron man fan, but some of the pics i’ve seen so far are getting me excited. the past few photos that were posted here were awesome.

    i’m sure there’s a better way now to be able to wear the suit without being uncomfortable or extremely hot. i believe in revenge of the sith, the wookie costumes had cold water pumping through them or fans, i can’t remember.
