Photos from the sets of Avengers: Infinity War suggest a few new things. Jon Favreau has posted a picture of him alongside two of his Iron Man franchise co-stars.
Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts will return for the movie. The photo also hints a new Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark).
See the photo below and take a look at a more detailed photo, posted on Page Six.
The Iron Heart
The Iron Man has shrapnel from an explosive lodged in the chest, pushing closer to his heart. The original reactor was invented only out of necessity. By lodging the arc reactor module Tony Stark held bits of the shrapnel in place and saved his life.
After Iron Man 3, he decided not have the tech rule his life and surgically removed the shrapnel from his chest. This eliminated the need for the reactor chest module.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, the character went into battle without the chest module.So, the question is, why is he seemingly wearing it again in Avengers: Infinity War?
Could it be the latest cutting-edge armor that Stark has developed?
The Model-Prime Armor
The Model-Prime armor uses nanotech to reconfigure into whatever Tony needs; different armors or weapons. It has flight capability, cerebral interface, and is in a metallic bracelet that Iron Man wears.
The Prime armor is a great thing for the upcoming movie. The Gauntlet will allow the user to control godlike power with just thought. Iron Man needs an armor that works just as fast. The MCU Model-Prime armor can be stored in the expanded chest module that Tony wears in these Avengers: Infinity War set pics.
Bleeding Edge Armor
The Bleeding Edge armor is an early version of the Model-Prime. It name rings out louder for the fans.
The armor breaks down into Iron Man’s bone marrow. Responding mentally, it forms weapons and devices with an energy source that is an artificial star. The armor was Tony’s most powerful designs, and this allowed him to match the most powerful opponents.
With name recognition and power levels, the Bleeding Edge suit is a design that is sure to do very well in Infinity War.
