The question of the day, or any day, about Iron Man 3 is whether or not the plot centers around “Extremis,” a storyline from the early aughts about a techno-organic virus that melds living people and technology. Well take a look at this recently released concept art below and tell me if maybe your still doubting…
And that’s official, seeing as how it came out via Marvel’s own Twitter feed. (Props to Ryan Meinerding for being the talented artist behind this piece.)
So the scene has Tony Stark surrounded by soldiers, clearly caught off guard. So did they catch him in the middle of putting on the Iron Man armor, or did they bust in suddenly and now he’s summoning it to appear via his new Extremis powers? Interesting the possibilities. The scene could really be taken either way, but given the rumors coming out about the film, I’d be very surprised if this wasn’t the latter explanation rather than the former.
Iron Man 3, directed and co-written by Shane Black, and starring Robert Downey Jr, Gwenyth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pierce, James Badge Dale, Rebecca Hall and Ben Kingsley comes out May 3, 2013. But look for some big news about the film to come out during San Diego Comic Con in a couple of weeks.
