Robert Downey Jr. Avengers: Infinity War

‘Entertainment Weekly’ has unveiled Iron Man’s new suit of armor from ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ on one of the 15 alternate covers for its latest issue, which is a double-length special devoted to one of the most anticipated films of the year.  The new suit is called the Bleeding Edge and features new power thrusters emerging from Tony Stark’s shoulders and allow him to fly through deep space.

Fittingly, EW devotes a lot of coverage to Robert Downey Jr. and his character, whose movie kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  After removing the arc reactor from his chest in ‘Iron Man 3’, he’ll have a brand new one in ‘Infinity War’.  As described by the magazine: “This time, the reactor is the suit, and allows it to spread out across his torso and limbs in a way that might make Black Panther‘s Shuri file a patent infringement lawsuit. Great minds think alike.”

Here is a full body shot of Stark in his new armor:

And of course, as we’ve seen, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) also gets a new suit dubbed the Iron Spider armor:

Downey remarked on the collaboration between Stark and Parker:

“I think [Marvel] is smart: “Oh yeah, we like the Parker/Stark thing.” So let’s keep them at close quarters as long as we can. Someone under your tutelage is now firing on all cylinders, but you’re responsible for bringing them into deeper water. We knew that would be fruitful.”

Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as Dr. Bruce Banner/Hulk, and Benedict Wong as Wong

In addition to Parker, fans can look forward to other team-ups between characters who have never met, plus a reunion of the “Science Bros.”

“I love how Cumberbatch just comes in and kind of draws flaming circles anywhere and can basically step into your movie. That’s fun. And we wanted to keep a little bit of the Science Bros thing alive, even though Ruffalo has been on such an amazing Banner/Hulk journey himself. I really, really, really enjoyed getting to know and work with and play around with Benedict as Strange. Benedict Wong also, by the way is fantastic.”
