If the trailers, TV ads, posters, armor designs, toy details, and interviews for Iron Man 3 have told us anything… it’s A) IM3 is gonna rock! and B) Disney/Marvel sure know how to market a movie. I don’t think there’s a fan-boy on the planet that doesn’t know Iron Man 3′s launch date… it’s May 3rd. Marketing assault aside, this film is clearly aiming to include everything fans of the books have wanted to see, from Mandarin to every armor design. Speaking of the latter…
It’s become public knowledge (via Disney/Marvels over saturated marketing), that the Hall of Armor has expanded, exponentially. Tony Stark has been hard at work building dozens of armors. There are suits designed for construction, stealth, hulk busting, space travel… under water basket weaving. I may have made that last one up. Point is, there’s a lot of suits. 42 to be precise, and there isn’t one bad suit in the bunch.
To get a closer look at Tony’s armada, check out these gorgeous motion graphic “Armor Reveals” by designer Kaism Lim. There’s also some images from the video as to examine as well.
Damn cool, wouldn’t you say? You can read more about Kaism Lim’s work on this page.
