It’s been 10 years and 18 movies since Iron Man (2008) came out, and now MCU is approaching at the culmination of everything that has happened till now, as Kevin Feige puts it. Marvel Studios has managed to assemble a magnificent cast under one roof to create a mega comic-book event as part of phase 3. The Infinity War films are the most awaited superhero ensemble movies of the 21st century. Fans are ready to witness the grandest event called Infinity War.
Till now, the Mad Titan has been teased in Marvel movies in post-credits of Phase 2, 3 films, but Infinity war will be the first major project where he is going to be the central antagonist. Thanos will assemble the Infinity gauntlet that makes him the most dangerous cosmic creature who is hell-bent on destroying worlds.
Marvel Cinematic universe will systematically expand to over 70 comic-book characters who are likely to appear in Avengers Infinity War movies. The classic comic-book story is unlikely to change much where Thanos first identify where all the infinity stones are and who is in possession of those. In Avengers 3, he will assemble all the stones and create an all-powerful Infinity gauntlet, cause a worldwide catastrophe and then in Avengers 4, the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy would join forces and fight the mad titan.
The Secret Weapon:
Iron Man has a huge collection of armors. That’s a fact that every fan knows. Some have been lucky enough to be exposed in past Iron Man and Avengers movies. While others are treasured secrets that only comic book readers may know about. Tony Stark, the genius that he is continues to evolve with each new film, and with it, the Iron Man suit has as well.
For instance, in Captain America: Civil War, Stark was in possession of a glove that functioned as a mini Iron Man suit but was too weak to really subdue the strength of The Winter Soldier.
And since Avengers: Infinity War is the big, anticipated moment that Marvel Cinematic Universe has been teasing since Phase 2, it more than likely that Tony Stark would have a few ideas and armors to battle the Titan king Thanos. Of course, there is one particular suit that has been mentioned in two movies but has never been seen. That suit being the Bleeding Edge suit.
Bleeding Edge is the advanced technology that was featured in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and again in the Doctor Strange debut movie. The technology is so advanced in the comics that nanobots are literally injected into Tony Stark’s body, and respond to Stark’s commands.
Bleeding Edge allows Stark to control and form suits by merely willing it. The technology has already pointed out to exist, with just timing being in the way of its proper debut.
Since Spider-Man Homecoming has already debuted Iron Man’s suit- the Ultimate Armor which has a different appearance to the traditional Iron Man armor by having a color change in appearance. The only other possibility for Bleeding edge to make its debut is in Avengers: Infinity War. Since the suit can transform into anything (weapons wise) that the Avenger can think of, taking on opponents like Red Hulk and Thor, it would withstand an Infinity War.
