A new piece of Iron Man 3 concept art has just started floating around. There's no confirmation on whether or not it actually made it into the movie (obviously), but if the current rumors are to be believed, it may offer some clues into how Iron Man 3 connects with the rest of the Marvel-verse. Spoilers spoilers spoilers! You ready? Here we go.
Here's the image. If you need some context, it's called the "Deep Space Suit."
So what exactly is this suit for? Well, if you remember, towards the end of the Avengers, Tony Stark flies a bomb into space, and barely survives it. Taking a look at the trailer for Iron Man 3, it seems like he can't get the events in New York out of his head. The rumor that's currently going around has him becoming inspired by this at the end of the film, leading to him constructing the above suit to take a trip into space.
When he gets there, who does he run into? None other than the Guardians of the Galaxy. Wham. Bam. Nifty Guardians introduction.
If this proves to be true, it could make for one hell of a stinger, what do you think?
