With everyone preparing to squee over Iron Man 2, set for a May release, IO9 has kindly posted a primer on how Tony Stark’s armor has looked in the comics over the years. There are a number of versions, from the original unwieldly silver look to the weird “stealth” armor to the costume with strange, riveted boots and gloves. Check out Stark’s armored looks at IO9.com.
Iron Man 2, scheduled for a May 7 release, stars Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Cheadle and Sam Rockwell, among others. Below, watch Downey’s awesome acceptance speech for winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) as the title role in Sherlock Holmes.
