Awesome IRON MAN 3 Concept Art Of Stealth, Deep Dive & Hypervelocity Armors
One of my favorite conceptual artists, Phil Saunders, has finally uploaded his outstanding concept art for Shane Black's box office hit, Iron Man 3 Hit the jump to check out designs for Tony Stark's Stealth, Deep Dive and Hypervelocity armors.
Phil Saunders is one of Marvel's most talented go-to-artist, having previously worked on Joss Whedon's The Avengers and the original Iron Man film, directed by Jon Favreau. If you'd like to see more of Phil Saunders' artwork, you can click here to visit his blog.
As for the artwork below, one of the interesting tidbits of info that Phil has passed along involving the initial concepts for Extremis soldiers.
"In early versions of the script Extremis was based on Nanotechnology like in the comic book, and would have constructed some sort of internal armor structure to grant the enhanced soldiers super-strength and near-invulnerability. thematically they would have been a reflection of Tony Stark, wearing their "suits" internally rather than externally. Makeup would have subtly suggested that structure by deforming their skin in a mechanical way. " - Phil Saunders
He also mentions that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jamie "The Kingslayer" Lannister from Game of Thrones, was considered for the role of Savin. So, much of artwork for Savin bears Nikolaj's likeness, not James Badge Dale's.

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.
