‘Iron Man 3′ Facebook App Reveals Two New Armored Suits

Movies & TV

/ March 26, 2013

Tony Stark is not to be outdone by other superhero franchises trying to muscle in on his promotional blitz. So, with that said, fans of Iron Man 3 are responsible for unlocking the first look at two new armors featured in the movie.

This morning on the official Iron Man Facebook page, Marvel launched a contest where lucky winners (in North America) will be flown out to the Los Angeles premiere of the moving on April 24th. As a result of that, the regions with the most winners today received an awesome new image, only visible to Facebook users living in that region (until it’s given to the Internets). Canada unlocked an image of the Hyper Velocity Suit (Mark 40), which you can see below.

Dubbed the “Shotgun,” the chest plate is a bit to be desired. California residents earned a look at the Enhanced Energy Suit (Mark 33), also known to Red Silver Centurion to most comic fans. This marks our first look at both suits and creates more anticipation for Robert Downey Jr.’s final act as the billionaire industrialist. Marvel will unveil another look at the Hulkbuster/Brute (Mark 38) armor as well as the Mark 17, a suit that is sure to make people say “wow” when they see the picture on May 3, 2013.

This will be another superhero packed year as Thor: The Dark World is also slated for release on November 8, 2013.

Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black based off of his and Drew Pearce’s screenplay, and stars the aforementioned Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle, Gwynth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and plenty of others.
