If you remember, by the time we finished IRON MAN 2 and THE AVENGERS, Tony Stark was up to Mark 7 for his Iron Man suits. However, LatinoReview is reporting that in a newly filmed scene that finds Tony about to go fight the Mandarin and his Extremis-enhanced bad guys, he tells Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts that he’s going to use Mark 47.
So we ask, just as Pepper did, “what happened to the other 40?”
According to the site, the Mark 47 will have the ability to control all the other Iron Man suits in battle…leading us to believe that there will be no less than 40 Iron Man suits flying through the sky at once come May 3, 2013.
Check out some concept art for the new suit below, as well as a look at a model of it from San Diego Comic-Con to the left, and try to stop bouncing up and down from sheer excitement.
