There were plenty of huge reveals at SDCC 2012, but one of my favorites was the sweet unveiling of a new mech suit from the upcoming “Iron Man 3” movie.
Robert Downey Jr. will don the predominantly gold-colored mark VIII armor in the third installment of the Iron Man film franchise, which was busted out on the second day of San Diego Comic Con. This suit is a huge departure in terms of color and appearance from the previous suits, resembling a stripped down mark V armor, with much more yellow than red.
Some fans believe this to be similar to his armor from the Michael Bendis “Extremis” storyline, while this reporter theorizes it could also just be an alternate suit, since it resembles, at least in color more than shape, his underwater suit. What do you think?
