Avengers Infinity War as we know is the most anticipated movie of this year and it is not too far away from us. In just 3 months, we will get to see the movie along with the insane thing it has in store for us. The hype for the movie is huge as it is the biggest Superhero ensemble ever seen on the big screen.
It is almost a decade now since first Iron Man movie came out in 2008 which set up the MCU which is this massive comic-book undertaking now. Nobody could have imagined that Iron Man from Marvel comics could be capable of lifting the entire MCU on his shoulders. He is the most admired and recognized superhero in the whole Marvel universe.
He will be next seen in Avengers Infinity War which is the beginning of the end of everything that has happened in the MCU in the three phases. The Infinity War event will mark the culmination of all the Marvel storylines and bring closure to the journeys of some of our beloved superheroes as well.
According to the reports, we will see more than 40 Marvel superheroes in a single frame fighting the Mad Titan and his Black Order. He will be coming to Earth to steal Infinity Gems in order to assemble an all-powerful gauntlet which grants the user God-like abilities and powers. He wants nothing short of ruling the entire cosmos.
In the official trailer released by Marvel, Thanos was already in the possession of two of six Infinity gems namely Power stone (Orb) and Space stone (Tesseract). The sixth Infinity gem is yet to be found i.e Soul stone which is expected to be hidden somewhere in the Kingdom of Wakanda under the protection of Black Panther.
Well, we can continue talking about Thanos and his evil plans but let’s take a break from that. People are excited about a lot of things but one of the key things is certainly the most teased about, which is the new Iron Man armor.
The new Super Bowl TV spot for Infinity War showed a lot in just 30 seconds and it also gave us a fair bit of look at Tony Stark’s new suit and possibly the tech behind the suit as well. Right into the trailer, we get a shot of Iron Man wearing his new suit, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man who is wearing his Iron Spider suit in this scene.
As we can see, the suit looks to be quite sleek and close to the body as compared to the suits which used to be quite bulky. This again brings up a theory which is being teased throughout the internet for quite a while. In the spot, we then get a look at Tony Stark meeting with Banner and he is wearing a Black and orange clothing with a new arc reactor stuck onto the shirt he is wearing.
Well, there has been a lot of speculation around the suit as we believe that this time, the entire suit will actually come out of his arc reactor which we have seen is attached to the cool looking outfit we saw him wearing on the sets of Infinity War and in the trailers as well. Most people believed that this Black and Orange suit was actually some kind of mo-cap CGI suit when they first saw it in the set images. But as we have seen Tony wearing it in both these trailers, it has been proven that it is a special suit that provides Tony Stark with new abilities.
We all know that Tony fixed his heart problem by removing all the shrapnel from his body, taking out the Arc reactor from his chest. So, that is why this new arc reactor is attached to Tony’s clothing, as it will provide as a powerhouse for the suit and will, in fact, store the entire suit within itself.
We saw in Captain America Civil War, the upgrades Tony made to his tech and suit. Tony made an entire gauntlet grow out of what we thought was just a watch. And now Iron Man does not need to remove his helmet while wearing the suit, the helmet just folds and fits right into the suit. In the similar fashion, this suit will fit into the Arc reactor itself.
The next scene we see Tony in this new spot probably proves this theory as Iron Man new armor looks to be shaping around his body in a way that we have never seen before. It presumably is coming out of his arc reactor as talked about above.
As mentioned in our earlier articles, Tony will probably retrieve this amazing technology from Wakanda, as we have seen in the Black Panther trailers that Shuri comes up with this micro-technology and T’Challa’s new Black Panther suit appears out of his necklace and shapes around his body.
Either Shuri herself will somehow hand this tech over to Stark or he may have even come up with it himself since he came up with the helmet thing from Civil War as well.
It’s natural that Iron Man’s suit will need an upgrade and Tony has gone through dozens of armors to fight his enemies who compelled him to push his mental limits and invent new technologies.
In ‘The Avengers’ we saw how he saved New York by carrying a nuke on his shoulders into the outer space but then he fell onto the ground and got knocked unconscious for a while. As a result, he upgraded his tech which will work in outer space as well. He now has access to a range of armors which can be used to travel to space, steal alien technologies and come back to Earth just in time.
In Iron Man 3 we saw how Tony can literally be at two places at once as Mark 42 allowed him to simultaneously track both his girlfriend Pepper and the President.
But underneath all that wealth and fame, he is like an overprotective mentor to Peter Parker, a lovable boyfriend (now fiance) to Pepper, a loyal Avenger and Earth’s protector.
Last we get to see this new suit in action as Doctor Strange casts his spell and Iron Man flies into the scene and this duo attack with a lethal combo! All in all, we are going to love what all is coming our way as it is just going to be so damn awesome!
