Apparently, Iron Man has a fresh and significant upgrade.
The Super Bowl’s second half was witness to the debut of the new Avengers: Infinity War TV spot from Disney and Marvel Studios, featuring a great deal of new footage. Keen fans didn’t waste time spotting that Tony Stark was displaying a new Iron-Man tech.
There is a scene which shows Tony take off his goggles and he is seen wearing the Iron-Man suit up to his neck. But, a closer look reveals that this suit is not the same as the one that we are familiar with.
The visuals make us feel as if the suit is growing on Tony, crawling up his neck. Unlike the last suit, which used to fold and collapse, the new suit is made of something else. Is it a product of the same tech that was used to make Black Panther’s suit?
As a build-up to Black Panther, there is a lot of said about T’Challa’s sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), especially her intelligence. The moviemakers maintain that Shuri is the brain behind the creation of Black Panther suit and she is far smarter than Tony Stark.
There won’t be a better way for Infinity War to prove her superiority over the former weapon maker than her solving a problem related to his suit that even Tony Stark has failed at. This footage suggests that Shuri did that by making a perfect Iron-man suit mixed with Vibranium and technology of Wakanda.
The trailer ends with another glimpse of Iron-Man, showing him fly right next to Doctor Strange. This image is even clearer and reveals that there is definitely some upgrade given to Tony’s suit.
You can watch the complete TV spot above.
Avengers: Infinity War releases in theaters on May 4th.
