New Iron Man 3 Suits Get A Spotlight
And a new, spoilery TV spot hits

26 March 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Facebook

Not to be outdone by other superhero franchises muscling in on its promotional blitz (Tony Stark would never want to be upstaged), Iron Man 3 is continuing to release new items. Chief among them is a competition at the film’s Facebook page, which allows users to unlock looks at the new armours featured in the movie, including the Mark 33 and Mark 40. Check them out below.

Yes, as the model numbers might suggest, Tony (Robert Downey Jr) has been busy since he fought alongside the Avengers. Haunted by concerns about his own abilities and fearing for the one person he can’t live without – that would be Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts – Stark is unable to sleep and consumed with improving his suits.

The results are a wide variety of different armours including these two, the Enhanced Energy Suit codenamed “Silver Centurion” (even though it’s red and features a triangle-shaped chest piece that would not thrill Joss Whedon – see below) and the daunting Hyper Velocity Suit that looks ready to live up to its codename of “Shotgun.”

Also new today is a TV spot that appears to give away a rather big moment in the film that, while it has been hinted at before, hasn't been seen in trailers, so please be advised that you might want to skip watching it. Iron Man 3, which also features Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall and Guy Pearce, is out on April 25.
