In the second sequel to Iron Man, titular hero Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) loses everything - even his iconic suits of armor. And that's just what this film needed in order to work as well as it does.
We've seen a ton of Iron Man 3 concept art before — but we didn't see the concepts from suit designer extraordinaire Phil Saunders. Saunders finally released some designs for Tony Stark's cutting-edge armors, and they are glorious.
Check out Robert Downey Jr.in Tony Stark' Mark XLVII armor on the cover of Empire Magazine's April issue. The film is really emphasizing the battle damage in its promotion of the third Iron Man outing.
