Joss Whedon discusses the Iron Man armor in the Avengers movie

There has been a discussion within the geek community about Iron Man’s armor in the Avengers movie, primarily focused arc reactor casing on his chest. Empire caught up with The Avengers director Joss Whedon to see if he could clarify what is going on.

Tony Stark is continuously evolving his armor so it would make perfect sense that there is a new iteration of the suit in the movie. I personally liked Whedon’s remark about the circle having purpose and his preference for the classic Iron Man.

About Ryan

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

  1. Just wondering why they keep showing shots of Ironman without his helmet? He’s not Ironman until he’s got that on.
    We now it’s Bob underneath the suit, so just show Ironman properly, put his helmet on already.

  2. Quite liked the triangle, considering his new element was triangular I thought it fit to have it that way on the suit.
    Also considering War Machine had a circular duracell (yes, I know, just kidding) battery it separated the two suits a bit as well.
    But if they’ve gone back to the circle then not particularly fussed, it’s a minor point and not really worth discussion all that much really.
