New 'Iron Man 3' Armor Look: Introducing Tony's Disaster and Space SuitsJacob Hall |
You know that big moment in the 'Iron Man 3' trailer where an entire army of Iron Men shows up to kick ass and take names? It turns out that each and every one of them has a name and a specific function...because Tony Stark really likes to think ahead. The identities of two of the new armors were revealed on Facebook today, so scroll on down and check them out!
The first of the new armors is the Mark 35, a big bruiser nicknamed "Red Snapper" that's apparently used for disaster rescues. The second is the Mark 39, called "Gemini' and used for sub orbital work. But these two are only the tip of the iceberg: we know that 'Iron Man 3' will feature plenty of additional suits, including a "Hulkbuster" (aka "Igor") armor and a deep space armor (which may be used to help tease the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy').
The sheer number of super-powered suits in 'Iron Man 3' serves a double purpose. First, it showcases what an obsessive genius Tony Stark really is and how his personal arsenal allows him to be ready for any situation that may arise. Secondly, it's going to allow Disney to sell sooo many Iron Man toys.
