If sheer marketing power determined summer movie box office success, then Disney and Marvel Studios are winning the race. We’ve seen the many trailers, TV ads, posters, armor designs, toy details, and more, as Iron Man 3 approaches, aiming launch not only the biggest movie season of the year, but the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

New Iron Man 3 footage will premiere during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, but for now, we have yet another look at some of the new armor suit designs Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will command in his next adventure.

We knew early on that Iron Man 3 would draw many of its story elements from Warren Ellis’ Extremis miniseries, but we didn’t know about Stark building an armor of new suit designs until a rumor last year. Leaked images of concept art and tie-in toy lines helped lend credence to the reports before Marvel nipped all the speculation in the bud but revealing the Iron Legion officially in posters and the new trailer.

More recently, the studio took to social media, using Facebook to share a more detailed look at a few of the notable suits, and now those same six new armor designs – and a few others – got another showcase during the Iron Man 3 world press tour stop in Beijing.

Last year we shared the rumor that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) would command not only a new suit or two (or more) himself in Iron Man 3, but that he would lead an army of armored suits. The official Iron Man 3 prelude comics dubbed his expanded Hall of Armor the “Iron Legion” and it wasn’t long before Stark’s minions found their way into the official marketing.

  1. Okay. Now this is damn cool.

  2. So Is he going to use the godkiller armor? That suit looks awesome

    • The Godkiller is in the background of one of the IM3 posters, so it’s at least making an appearance in the film.

  3. Im only aksing me one thing when i see all this armos.

    What will they do for iron man 4? Its too much in iron man 3.

    • @ Megamacy

      It rise one question to me, why Tony need other hero in Avenger 2 , if he have his own army.
      If he don’t gona So many suit in avenger 2 then why?
      Or it is end of Iron man.

      • I’m guessing whatever plot device is enabling Tony to control all these suits will be removed by the end of the movie. Like Batman destroying his citywide Sonar system at the end of The Dark Knight.

        Either that or they’ll reboot Iron Man and pretend this stuff never happened before.

    • Great question. This film is clearly aiming to include everything fans of the books have wanted to see, from Mandarin to every armor design.

      Iron Man 4 will again have to take Tony in a different direction, whether that involves space a la Marvel NOW!, Hulk (the real Hulkbuster armor) or even S.H.I.E.L.D., with him becoming the director.

      • Seems to me like perhaps Tony is being set up to take over SHIELD maybe with Rhodes taking his place in The Avengers.

      • I believe Kevin Feige has said that Iron Man 3 will be the last one…. I may be wrong though. I hope they stop at 3, as much as Iron Man is super awesome, they should not stretch him too far. I feel they should start looking at street level heroes after Avengers 2.

        • It will not be streching it TOO FAR as long as they keep the stories fresh and exciting with new adventures and villians for IM!

          Or this is possibly the last IM movie and that is why they are incorporating so much, I CANNOT SEE HOW THIS MOVIE WILL BE UNDER 3 hrs! 2.5 at the very least or it will just feel way too rushed!!

          Im assuming that most of the suits will be destroyed in this film, Hence the reason why he needs so many, Maybe only a few like the Gemini suit and the one pepper wears or a combination of a few of the suits will survive the films conclusion and will be the reason none or VERY VERY few would make it into the avengers 2!
          Again Im assuming none of them except the ones Tony will wear will be in Avengers 2, but probably like all the other movies IM has been in there will be at least 1 new MAIN suit for Avengers 2

          • Yes, we know one or two suit survive the. But If he design that suits once then he able to make them again.then why he don’t make them again

    • Maybe it will lead to the Armor Wars storyline. That’s one I’ve been hoping for. I’m thinking with all the models he’s got now, someone somewhere has got to be able to reverse engineer some of them.

      • The armor war story line alone would make a great trilogy. They could do a nice build up of armored villians like Titanium Man and Firepower. Then Stark faced all of them at once in the third movie.

  4. That was very cool. There isn’t one bad suit in the bunch. This can’t get here fast enough.

  5. I wonder why they only show an up close look at these armors and no all the other ones

  6. Awesome preveiw

  7. That was very cool. There isn’t one bad suit in the bunch. This can’t get here fast enough.

  8. I think that at the end, maybe Extremis causes side effects and Tony has to have it removed. I just hope the finale involves lots of fire breathing and red eyes. And also lots of booms punctuated with loud dramatic music. :D

  9. And I wonder what Hannah Shaw-Williams smile looks like? ;)

  10. Has anyone see the new video on youtube… “Marvel’s iron man 3 – “power” tv spot #8 [hd]“?

  11. Have you seen the video on youtube “marvel’s iron man 3 – “armor overview” promo video [hd]“? It covers this topic in a better video with new footage.

  12. I can’t view the videos….. :’( It says I need Vimeo Plus…? Whyyyyy
