"Iron Man 3" Concept Art Shows New Suit

From worstpreviews, Today we have new concept art for Marvel's upcoming "Iron Man 3," giving us a better look at Iron Man's new suit that the studio showed at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Marvel already confirmed that Ben Kingsley will be playing The Mandarin in the movie, that's described as "technological crisis thriller." It co-stars Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau.

The new movie is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and is set to hit theaters on May 3rd, 2013.

I saw a pic of a full-sized statue of this suit at SDCC. I think I agree with the comment I heard was kicking around there: "too much mustard."

I know, right? Why do they keep changing the costume? I thought it looked fine in the first film. Perhaps it is a scheme to justify making more action figures?

I'm sure the action figure angle has been making the suits at toy companies smile for years, but at least in this case there's an organic reason for it. Seeing as you get three versions of the armor just in the first movie, it makes sense that Tony Stark would be constantly upgrading.

Ah. Found Wiki's list of suits from the movies, and if you scroll up there's a million other ones from the comics.

Upgrading is fine but why change the color scheme?
