Leaked IRON MAN 3 Concept Art Featuring Hulkbuster Armor

We've got our hands on some awesome leaked concept designs from Marvel's upcoming Iron Man threequel, which give us a good look at Tony Stark's space suit, and although it's unlikely to feature in the movie, the Hulkbuster armor. See em now while they're still up!

If Marvel have concept art for a Hulkbuster suit, does it mean we might see it show up in a later movie? And if so, what do you think of this design?

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley. The movie is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black, and hits theaters May 3, 2013.

The space armor looks sick but the Hulkbuster looks like a [frick]ing chicken.

Cool. Blind Iron Man and Hunchback Iron Man.
95 - 2/22/2013, 12:10 PM
Or Asian Iron Man.
FrenzyFreak - 2/22/2013, 12:11 PM
This better not be legit...
BigDamnHero - 2/22/2013, 12:12 PM
Hulkbuster looks terrible!
95 - 2/22/2013, 12:12 PM
Deep Space looks like something from those space shooter video games. I can't pinpoint what I'm thinking about, though. Looks really cool.

Hulkbuster does look awful.
FrenzyFreak - 2/22/2013, 12:14 PM
I guess Tony will break his back in IM3 and will therefore need to make a new suit that fits to his snapped spinal cord?
SuperDude001 - 2/22/2013, 12:24 PM
Hulkbuster: Meh, looks like an uncomfortable position for Tony to stand in, I'm guessing if the suit appears it will be different.
Jollem - 2/22/2013, 12:30 PM
the space armor is called the Starbooster armor, apparently
RexDartEskimoSpy - 2/22/2013, 12:31 PM

Wow. Somebody loves Evangelion a little too hard.

The whole point of the Hulkbuster's shape and size was to protect Tony's head and limbs from the Hulk yanking them off. This is just... *sigh*

Space armor looks sweet.
DefcoN - 2/22/2013, 12:32 PM
What? Is a Hunchback in that armor??
shamo - 2/22/2013, 12:32 PM
love the 1st suit. 2nd is pretty shitty though.
marvel72 - 2/22/2013, 12:32 PM
space armour looks cool

hulkbuster armour looks alright,remember its only concept art there is probably other designs.
OrionPax - 2/22/2013, 12:32 PM
Space armor looks great!!!!But who's in the hulk buster suit,Quasimodo?
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 2/22/2013, 12:33 PM
i call FAKE!!! but awesome.
Fornication - 2/22/2013, 12:35 PM
Space suit looks like something from Dead Space.
StrangerX - 2/22/2013, 12:35 PM
I like the space armor.
JatevinM - 2/22/2013, 12:36 PM
Lmao why does it look like a turtle though?
DCjohnny - 2/22/2013, 12:36 PM
well I haven't read many marvel comic, so I was wondering why would hulk wear an iron man suit ?
and even if he is gonna wear then how are view gonna fit him in it ?... won't he struggle to break free (you know he has this childish behaviour and anger management issues)... and how is he gonna understand all the hologram inside the helmet ...

MisterBabadook - 2/22/2013, 12:36 PM
Hulk ulster concept looks terribly uncomfortable to wear.
JoeMomma29 - 2/22/2013, 12:36 PM
Hulk armor looks like a giant moron!
JoeMomma29 - 2/22/2013, 12:37 PM
Tony Stark approves!

shamo - 2/22/2013, 12:40 PM
@youngman, how about The Iron Man of Notre Dame?
95 - 2/22/2013, 12:41 PM
@dcjohnny LOL. Are you joking? Well, if you aren't, and truly don't know about the Hulkbuster armor, it's meant for Tony, not Hulk. It's for Tony to fight the Hulk. Hence, Hulkbuster.
LEEE777 - 2/22/2013, 12:41 PM

Wtf is wrong with this yo >

What @LEVITIKUZ said...
Beat me to it... [frick]
darkdroid499 - 2/22/2013, 12:42 PM
Deep Space Armor is cool and stylish, but Hulkbuster just looks silly.
ComixBookGuy - 2/22/2013, 12:44 PM
Iron Man 3 links to Guardians of the Galaxy. Epic! The space suit looks awesome.
BackwardGalaxy - 2/22/2013, 12:45 PM
Teenage Mutant Ninja Tony.
lostrojo - 2/22/2013, 12:45 PM
The Hulk-Buster looks similar to the District 9 mech.....well minus the Iron-man mask haha
lostrojo - 2/22/2013, 12:47 PM
Also i have to add, the Deep-Space suit has little Iron-Man masks on his shoulders
thatiscrazy - 2/22/2013, 12:51 PM
That second one definitely missed the mark!
Bandido - 2/22/2013, 12:51 PM
I mean...is there anything else left to say about how BAD the second armor looks? Lol

The first one tho...thats some awesome shit!

But if this is real then that confirms my fears of him showing up in GoTG

intelrebel - 2/22/2013, 12:52 PM
@95 and everyone the space armor looks like something CERBERUS from MASS EFFECT would wear right down to style and color scheme. Hulkbuster though should be called quasimodok buster (see my clever pun)
AztecRainGod - 2/22/2013, 12:52 PM
That space armor is some [frick]ing BOSS shit.

The hulk buster armor looks completely retarded.

Tony got some armors as a precaution if s-it were to hit the fan. Here (below) the Thor-buster:

95 - 2/22/2013, 1:00 PM
@intelrebel: There you go! You got it. Thanks.
95 - 2/22/2013, 1:01 PM
@TheYoungMan That Gif, lol. That has got to be the funniest thing I've ever seen.
shamo - 2/22/2013, 1:04 PM
@backward galaxy, good one. you're winning so far.
KeefNCookies - 2/22/2013, 1:05 PM
Agree with almost everyone on here. Yay to Space armor, Nay to Quasimodo armor ... looks more like a suit the Hulk would actually wear instead of someone using it against him.
