New IRON MAN 3 Behind-The-Scenes Images Featuring Construction Of The Suits
Hit the jump to check out some new behind-the-scenes images released by special effects studio, Legacy Effects. They feature the construction of the armors used in Shane Black's Iron Man 3.
"The funny thing is, not much of the final suit is actually metal. In fact, they are comprised of many different materials, such as fiberglass, plastic and silicone. In addition to making these suits as convincing as possible as metal machines, our goal is to make sure the actors are comfortable inside them. The suit can’t look stiff or respond to the actor’s movements in a clunky way. They need to offer a full range of movement, and comfort so as not to inhibit the actor’s performance. Each piece of the suit is then grown on our 3D printer, and sent to the shop for molding and casting." - Legacy Effects
