Movie Review – Spider-Man Homecoming


gggv

Title – Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

Director – Jon Watts

Cast – Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Robert Downey Jr, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Bokeem Woodbine, Donald Glover, Marisa Tomei

The last time we saw the friendly, neighborhood Spider-man on screen, he was helping Iron Man fight Captain America in Captain America: Civil War. Apparently Tony Stark thought that it would be a great idea to bring an inexperienced high schooler in to fight a bunch of Avengers.  Before that though, he was being played by Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-man 2, where he was fighting Electro.  While I really like Garfield as Spider-man and his portrayal of the web swinger but the movie failed for impress from a storyline point of view.

Tom Holland does a brilliant job in portraying Spider-Man. He plays the role of Peter Parker and stays true to the idea that he’s a goofball and a sarcastic villain irritant. In exchange, this seems to be the first Spider-Man rendition where they never focus on his “Spidey Sense.” They make it a part of him being the wall crawler but never focus too much upon it. I think it was a good decision on their part.

Marvel usually has a list of villains who just play an adversary to the hero and are easily forgettable. Michael Keaton’s Vulture doesn’t fall in this category. He’s more characterized than most of their bad guys, and though he’s more understandable, the script and the story make Vulture’s part really outstanding.

The rest of the cast was fine for the token roles that they were playing.  You had the goofy sidekick that wanted to be “the man in the chair.” You had the love interest.  You had the  jerk.  You had the loner that’s not really a loner.  All cliche characters who proved to be useless plot wheels and kind of ruined the movie for me. If it was not for Peter and Vulture the movie would have been intolerable for most of the parts.

So with a great amount of successful humor, an exceptional performance by Tom Holland and Michael Keaton, Spider-Man: Homecoming is definitely a movie worth seeing. Despite all the mediocrity that feels like some fan fiction writer from tmblr wrote it, Homecoming found a way to make that standard formula feel a little different.

Movie Review – Captain America: Civil War


Captain-America-Civil-War-concept-art-1-1200x641

Like the previous Captain America movies, “Captain America: Civil War” continues the tradition of a great superhero movie. It is a great action/thriller with a nice blend of humour. Before The Avengers came to the theatres, many wondered that how would one manage bring so many different superheroes together in one film and have it feel both cohesive and coherent. Then the movie ended up delivering in a big way and in the wake of its success it almost seemed foolish to have doubted the proposition in the first place.

The Russo Brothers and their amazing under-appreciated Screenwriters have done an amazing job with the film. It is not just Superhero movie, but pure entertainment film. They prove that they are true fans of the source material, making changes that needed to be made for the transition to the big screen.

The story is changed from the comic but in a way that the Marvel Cinematic Universe needed so badly. This film changes every relationship for the worse. We travel around the world and new characters enter the fray. Black Panther/T’Challa is the most prominent of these and Chadwick Boseman nails the character, leaving you wanting more for the future and longing for his standalone movie.

captain-america-civil-war

There are many big ideas in the film and it attempts to turn expectations on the head in some ways. Tony Stark as the Steve’s counterpoint is presented in a beautiful way, and the film explains how and why this is the case by exploring his background. The script, by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, touches on something that comic book films have been accused of–showing mass destruction without the consequences. Civil War deals with a long time issue with comic book movies. The issue of collateral damage. When heroes fight villains, a number of innocents are hurt and die. Secretary of State (William Hurt, reprising his role as Thunderbolt Ross) presents the Avengers with a choice; sign an accord that makes them agents of the U.N., or retire. While Iron Man supports the accords,  Captain America opposes it calling it a means to turn Avengers into a weapon of war.

There are more characters–the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), who in the comics got married and I think they’re going in that direction in the films, even though he ends up imprisoning and cooking for her. The major action piece is full-blown battle at the airport. We even get Ant-Man turning into a full fledged Giant Man, and meet the new Spider-Man (Tom Holland, who makes Tobey Maguire seem like an ancient history.

Captain-America-Civil-War-2-Trailer-Vision-vs-Scarlet-Witch

Captain America: Civil War shows that how a great balance between gravitas and humor can be achieved. Something that the D.C. films struggle with. When Downey Jr. is approached by a mother (Alfre Woodard) whose son died as collateral damage in an Avengers fight, you can feel the pain and emotions as you know the backstory. Evans plays a much less nuanced character, but he is terrific, and the film is full of cameos, such as Martin Freeman and, amazingly, Marisa Tomei as Parker’s Aunt May.

civil-war-spider-man-salute

From here how Marvel takes their films over the next couple of years is going to be intruiging. If anything, we probably won’t be learning the fallout from the events of Civil War right away. The next couple of films in the franchise either introduce a new character and new corners of the cinematic universe (November’s Doctor Strange) or appear to take place off-Earth (next year’s Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2). It probably won’t be until 2018’s Black Panther that we get to see what comes next in the studio’s grand plans for these heroes.

Review: Avengers – Age of Ultron


Avengers 2

The most awaited sequel to mega blockbuster of 2012, Age of Ultron hit the theaters last week in theaters worldwide. Creating a sequel to a blockbuster as beloved and successful as The Avengers is something big for anyone to live upto. One of the reasons the film became such a massive hit because of the novelty of seeing these characters on screen for the first time ever on the big screen; something that was long thought to be impossible. After massive success of the first movie, the sequel would have to shake things up. Age of Ultron feels like writer/director Joss Whedon is constantly trying to outdo himself. For the most part, he is succeeds. The film is more ambitious, emotional, funnier, and darker than its predecessor. However, it’s also less coherent and streamlined. In an attempt to juggle so many characters and subplots, the film loses that magic of simplicity that made the first film so appealing.  Despite those misgivings, the film manages to still be a fun and engaging superhero epic that serves to kick off the summer movie season and serves as a proper farewell to Whedon from Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ultron-2

For me Age of Ultron is a massive success but it fails to pull off everything with the grace and synergy. The movie is on a different scale unlike Avengers was. The movie is a massive balancing act, pulling in about a dozen important characters and trying to give them all something to do while also telling a cohesive, succinct narrative. The movie is a juggling act that Joss Whedon tries to maintain fairly well. While I was fairly satisfied while walking out of the theater the feeling was not as great as the first movie and there is where the problem is.

Most of the reviews are made comparing it with the first movie when they should not. Most of the reviews have complained about new characters, if there was a sequel without new characters there would still be complains. The movie outdoes the expectations that fans had after the announcement.

serkis

Age of Ultron proves to be a massive entertainer from the beginning. It opens with an exciting, and an entertaining action sequence that reintroduces all of the characters and the dynamic they share as a team. The opening is right on point in nearly all aspects, and creates a sense of high energy and pacing that is never really lost. While there are slower moments in the movie (such as a mid-movie sequence at the Barton farm) the sense of energy is never halted because there’s always something happening that propels the story forward. Unlike with the opening act of the first Avengers film, which tended to lull in some segments as the team was pulled together, Age of Ultron quickly establishes an excellent sense of narrative pacing, and this is arguably one of the film’s greatest strengths.

avenger-2-ultron-s-origin-and-which-sides-quicksilver-and-scarlet-witch-side

The movie shows a great pacing apart from action sequences. Joss Whedon and his team does their best to manage their time amongst the numerous threads that the plot weaves along with the way characters connect with each other. As a writer, Whedon manages to find a great way of doing this, incorporating minor details from previous Phase Two films to show that, yes, they were relevant, while also keeping the focus where it needs to be: the matters at hand, how the team operates, and how the characters evolve because of the ordeals they undergo.

Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-Trailer-1-Hawkeye-in-Snow-620x370

If The Avengers was about assembly, Avengers: Age of Ultron is about disassembly. The former played on their conflicting personalities while the latter plays on their fears and insecurities. Though Ultron may be the main antagonist of the picture, it’s our heroes who have themselves to fear. How can these people save the world when they can’t even save themselves? The internal struggle of these characters is trying to overcome their mistakes and pain. That is what raises the stakes in this film. The entire world is jeopardy, but it’s also a battle for the Avengers to save their souls.

The film is loaded with terrific action sequences. The Hulk vs Hulkbuster scene is everything you hoped it would be and more. Though there is a lot to take in from the set pieces, they never feel exhausting or overwhelming, despite it being clear Whedon is always trying to top what he accomplish in the first film. Though admittedly, it’s hard to feel sense of danger when you know these characters are going to be back for their individual movies including more Avengers sequels. As usual, each character gets their shining moment. The principal cast has grown into these roles to the point where they could pull them off in their sleep. A most notable improvement is Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), who after being relegated to Loki’s henchman for most of the first film, gets an integral and dynamic role among the team. Not to mention that he gets some of the best lines in the film. I wouldn’t be surprised if he emerged as fan-favorite after all is said and done.

New additions to the cast vary. Thankfully, Ultron works for the most part and is miles ahead of just about all of the villains in Marvel films so far (which isn’t that hard when you look at how these villains were written). He’s surprisingly more snarky than people would expect an angry, maniacal robot to be. But that imbues the character with a personality that is sorely lacking from the rogue gallery in MCU. Joss Whedon admitted that the initial cut of the film was much longer. It comes out clear at many places as origin story for Quicksilver and Wanda comes out in a very rushed manner. Their origin is touched upon but in a very rushed manner. The Maximoff twins begin to work as characters as the film progresses, but there were missed opportunities to get audiences behind them early on. The breakout character of the film is hands down the Vision (Paul Bettany). While I won’t spoil his origin here, the film will leave you wanting to see more of especially since he does a fantastic job of making an impact in his first appearance.

The movie works and proves that Marvel Cinematic Universe is not going anywhere. Age of Ultron succeeds in teasing future movies with its supporting cast. The movie is entertaining but at the same time worries me about execution of future Marvel movies. It sets up Civil War, Wakanda and most importantly Infinity War and suffers with the same problem that Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Iron Man 2 suffered but on a very small scale. The summer has started with a bang and Marvel is going to rule.

Rating 8.5/10

Trailer Analysis – Avengers: Age of Ultron


1

After a long wait and being teased again and again at different expos and comic con finally we got to see the much awaited sequel of Avengers and the trailer was mind blowing. Certain bits and pieces in the trailer although unclear were worth noticing. I have watched the trailer again and again and finally here is a trailer analysis about how and what the movie is going to be.

Is there a superhero movie these days whose trailer doesn’t starts with a monologue. This is something that separates Comic Book movies different from other movies. Weather it is Zor’El monologue from Man of Steel or Steve Rogers and Alexander Pierce pep talk in The Winter Soldier it has been part of the comic books who the story shapes out. Here in Age of Ultron we get a similar monologue by our Villain Ultron voiced by the legendary James Spader whose voice sounds absolutely terrifying.

The monologue contains a number of moments, New York City in destruction and chaos and people running away from something (guess what). The clip soon cuts to another group of people who are standing protesting about something, I feel that the trailer sows the seeds for Civil War and these people are the ones demanding a registration act or something similar. Interesting part is that both Quicksilver and Scarlet witch are in this crowd of protesters. So again I am not sure whats going on.

1414079885635

The clip moves to show Ultron’s hand being covered in something metallic (Vibranium may be?) this happens somewhere in between of the film when Ultron finally arranges Vibranium and upgrades himself. We see more people shouting and then we see Captain America in between of a battlefield. He looks tired and broken followed by quick shot of Hawkeye. He seems he is back on evacuating duty like last time and then Thor’s hammer.

The shot cuts to the scene where a terrified Bruce Banner is sitting with Thor and Widow both of them look broken and tensed. But why is Dr. Banner so terrified that will make him crawl in his own space. This may be after his fight with Hulkbuster and he does something unfortunate that he is not supposed to. Anyways the whole trailer makes a point clear that Dr. Banner is in pain, he is terrified and running away from something.

avengers-2-age-of-ultron-trailer-leak-screenshot-bruce-banner1

Scene cuts to Ultron Mark 1 walking inside Avengers mansion that he seems to build himself from scraps of pervious Iron Man suits, he is such a party pooper. There are two unknown women in the party, one of them is Maria Hill, the other one I am not sure about though.

main3_Ultron_teaser03_zps8caa8596

avengers-2-age-of-ultron-trailer-leak-screenshot-iron-man-armor1

The interesting part is that no one seemed to notice is that there is already an Ultron Bot fallen on the floor that Ultron lifts and breaks it apart. Ultron has some major daddy issues, furious against his creator with a belief that Humanity is flawed and he can achieve perfection by killing them all. I am still not sure that what this bot is doing on the floor, maybe there was an attack by one of the Ultron Bots that Avengers or one of them took him down after which Ultron made an appearance or someone simple sucker punched one of the Starks personal security bots to show their might.

Marvel logo flashes on the screen while the creepy version of Pinocchio’s I’ve got no strings on me starts playing in background. We see Iron Man in a new suit in between of mountains, a fort that seems like a new Hydra base and Captain Rogers breaking a door and entering.

avengers-2-age-of-ultron-trailer-leak-screenshot-nick-fury-samuel-l-jackson1

These army guys never understand, they have to open fire at every alien or robot that descends and attack the city doesn’t matter if their bullets are not even going to touch them. We see army deployed in a city most probably NYC followed by more innocent civilians, a tank and then Bruce Banner running and falling on the snow, he is terrified and in pain. Is he having trouble controlling the monster inside him? May be.

From here we get our first introduction to the twins, it seems at some moment they’ll be working with Ultron before becoming the good guys.

A number of Ultron Bots appear from sea and make their way for the battle. I personally feel that these Ultron bots are not a part of Ultron’s army but the private security created by Tony Stark and SHIELD. They assist Avengers during the fight against HYDRA after which they become fully aware and it might be a result of Loki’s mind gem that is with Baron Stucker in the beginning of the film.

We see Avengers in the battlefield, Thor’s hammer falling on the ground that I believe is just a metaphor for defeat and he is not going to become unworthy so soon. Although I feel that Thor might die in this movie sowing seeds for Ragnarok where he has to escape Hel in order to protect Asgard.

We see couple of shots of Tony Stark, looking at a damaged Ultron Bot and then regretting about all the decision and the path he took. Stark always wanted to privatize world piece and Ultron might be his biggest mistake.

We soon move to what for me is most anticipated parts about this movie that is Hulk vs Hulkbuster. Hulk seems to be possessed, his eyes are red and nerves show up all around his arms and shoulders. He is angry and doing what is does the best, destroying a city until Stark intervenes.

Black widow jumps out of a quinjet riding a badass motorcycle followed by Quicksilver in a slo-mo scene fighting Ultron or a bot and saves Captain America. Even Scarlet Witch looks angry and all hexy (you see what I did there?)

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.35.04 PM 1

There are a few scenes that I am yet not able to understand. Steve Rogers is in some 1940 setting with a part going on, is there time travel involved? Is this one of the Ultron Visions or an illusion created by Scarlet Witch. We see water all dried up as ships stands still that seems like another distant future vision and what is Andy Serkis doing here? He might be playing Ulysses Klaw who’ll arrange for Vibranium for Ultron. This opens doors for Black Panther movie as the Serkis can play the Klaw’s sound version excellently in Black Panther movie with the mo-cap technology.

Even Thor seems deranged as he comes out of the water, I feel that Thor dies at some point and this is either Hel or Valhalla where he recovers in afterlife.

There is something going on between Black Widow and Hulk. May be she turns out to be his new calm down agent.

The death and destruction follows by a bunch of Ballerinas and then more death and destruction. We see Hawkeye in his Ronin suit running in the same snowy setting. In the next clip Thor lifts Stark by his neck, he probably doesn’t know that Destroyer armor is still in SHIELD custody and Thorbuster might be on the way.

We see the heroes fallen with Captain America’s shield broken in pieces and Thor’s hand next to it. Again this could be vision. Finally we see the Upgraded version of Ultron who declares that there are no strings on him.

If you look at the trailers closely the numbers and street signs vary from European to Asian that makes sure that the danger this time is worldwide rather than only NYC being in attack.

In short there is a lot going on in the movie, I wonder how Whedon will manage all of this. But I have my full faith in him.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE GREATEST SUPERHERO EVER!!


Captain america quotes


The greatest and the most popular heroes in comics and pop culture who represent the average humans with burden and responsibility are Superman, Batman, Spider-man and Captain America. They all are iconic and have a sense of responsibility to protect the innocent and help the weak at all cost. But of all of them I always believed that Captain America is the greatest and purest of all three and in this write up I’ll try to prove it. Because even if you don’t like the character, Captain America has to be admired and respected for being the person that he is and doing what only he can do.

Big time props should go out to Joe Simon and Jack Kirby for creating a truly inspiring hero for all kids to see in December of 1940 with Captain America #1 from Timely Comics (which would later become Marvel). In that era a character in comic books actually punched Hitler was a big deal. He was most popular and enduring in those days as a pop culture icon.

captain_america_quote_wallpaper_by_klutzyduck-d6vo4us

Captain America is one of the few who rose from this disabled kid who lived for patriotism of his country. He read the propaganda and he bought into it all the way. So much that he agreed to be part of an experiment that would allow him to “serve” his country as a supersoldier and help win the war and then realized the lies within the propaganda. But that didn’t stop him from loving his country and trying to live up to the values of what got him there, even if his own country didn’t stand behind them.

Captain America is again better than Superman who was the first true comic-book superstar risen from the pages of Action Comics #1 in 1938. Superman started the trend that followed later and put him up high in the pantheon of our modern-day heroes.

cap-america2

Superman’s biggest flaw is that he represent everything good. No one can beat him and he’ll always win over the wrong. This is what gives the character the biggest flaws compared to Captain America. Cap despite being a Super Soldier he is still a man. Despite being a weak kid from Boston who became a Super Soldier and a symbol of peace and freedom still has to train everyday to stay this way. His suit makes him a target of all enemies. He is the most respected and recognizable hero in the Marvel Universe who inspires a nation and even other super-powered beings as well as powerful Gods from far off fabled lands.

He can’t fly at super speeds, survive direct hits from atomic missiles and lift buildings over his head with ease. He is a human being who shows the common man that each of us possesses all the superpowers we need to be heroes ourselves. For this reason I shall always believe that Cap is a better “pure” hero than Superman.

Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-Speech

Another comparison is Batman who is just perfect. But he represents the darkness that Captain America can never embrace. Steve Rogers is not a rich kid like Bruce Wayne and whatever he has today is a result of his hard work and losses he suffered in the path. The two are very comparable when it comes to overall abilities, grit, determination and willpower. It’s anyone’s guess who really is the better (even though Cap is physically Batman’s superior). Both put their lives on the line against all comers and are usually the last ones left standing in battle. But that is where the comparison’s end. Batman uses fear, stealth, gadgets and his own plan regardless of what his teammates want also Batman is egoistic. Even Batman in the JLA/Avengers limited-series (2003-2004) steps back and is lead by, who else…Captain America!! Why? Because even he knew the Cap would do a better job than him. When it comes to pure RESPECT by his peers even Batman takes a back seat to Cap. This is why Cap is a much greater “pure” hero than even Batman.

2677627-captainamericacomics01

Spidey is a true hero because the superhero life has never been easy for him. People always loved Cap (most of the time) and Superman. They’re recognized as heroes, supported by the government, and their battles are usually straight up right vs. wrong. Spider-man’s life, on the other hand, would be much better if he stopped being a hero. Being Spider-man has made his life hell and he sees no reward from it and is even recognized as a criminal, but he keeps doing it because it’s the right thing to do. Spider-man is a symbol for overcoming adversity, not giving up, and doing the right thing even when it hurts you. And this is everything needed to be a truly great “pure” hero. But truth be told, Spidey is this way because of Captain America. He looks up to Cap as the living, breathing and fighting symbol of freedom and wants to be just like him. That’s the big difference between the two; Cap is doing what he will always do in the face of adversity because he has too and everyone around him knows it and is inspired by it! And Spider-man is one of those many faces in the crowd looking at Cap for that inspiration. Even though Spidey is a “pure” hero in every sense of the word, Captain America IS the hero he’s trying to be.

Captain-America-10-Essential-Comic-Book-Runs

Captain America is the symbol of hope in despair, light in darkness and yet everything wrong in the world that he stands against for. His morals, values make him what he is. He stood for vigilantes and masked superheroes in Civil War and ultimately took a bullet because he believed in his principles and his values didn’t allow him to take Tony Star’s side.
Steve Rogers truly deserves respect and is the purest and greatest Superheroes ever.

Iron Man 3: A guide to Tony Stark’s new armors


You all be wondering how many and what armors Stark will be using in Iron Man 3 and why so many armors all of a sudden. The Armor collection skips from Mark 8 in Avengers to Mark 47. FYI every armor has a special quality that makes it different with unique powers so here is a glimpse to various suits of Tony Stark and what they can do.

 

Mark XLVII

In the first two Iron Man films and Avengers, Tony Stark went through armors Mark I-VII but in ‘Iron Man 3’Image he’ll be using Mark 47 (XLVII). The Mark XLVII armor is tied directly in with the Extremis nanotechnology and allows Tony Stark to control it with his mind. The suit is able to fly in separate pieces and wrap itself around Tony as needed. It also allows Tony to remotely control the suit, even when he’s not wearing it.

 

Deep Space Armor

Image

In the ‘Iron Man’ comics, Stark created his first “Deep Space” suit in the 80s, which included booster jets, a compression gel to protect against G-force and an expanding solar sail to assist with re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere. ‘Iron Man 3’ will reportedly include a scene where Iron Man travels into space with this new Deep Space armor, a sequence that would lead directly into the cosmic nature of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

Hulkbuster (Codename: Igor/ Brute)
Image

The Hulkbuster is actually an exo-module the wraps on top of the existing armor. Tony Stark used to first to originally battle Crimson Dynamo but battle with Hulk made it famous as Hulkbuster armor. It has a capacity to lift over 175 tons and survive the Hulk’s attacks, the exo-module takes the impact and not affect the main armor directly. The unibeam and repulsers are upgraded and made to cause bigger damage.

Heartbreaker

Image

While not much idea about this one all we can say is that it looks heavily reinforced with a much larger chest piece.

 

 

 

 

 

Ghost Armor

Image

The Ghost Armor is known as Mark XXVII in the comics and it is made of advance composite ceramic fused with a Kevlar like substance. It features upgrades that help Tony to mix and blend with the surroundings giving an advantage over enemy  This armor is included in movie toy line so we can hope that it appears in the movie

 

Stealth Armor

Image

The Iron Man Stealth Armor first appeared in 1981 and was designed very much like the classic Stealth Bomber. Tony Stark created the Stealth Armor because of being easily tracked. While originally designed with only evasion components it was lated upgraded with weapons and plastic/ceramic shell that would protect him against Magneto. Stealth Armor is present in Iron Man 3 poster if you can take a zoom. It is a derivation of the MARK VI armor, with built-in stealth capabilities, which allow him to infiltrate the TEN RINGS’ hideouts unnoticed.

 
 
Hydro Armor
Image

The Hydro Armor was created for Deep sea missions, rumors suggest that Tony uses this suit in ‘Iron Man 3’ to search for evidence at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean after his Malibu home is destroyed by Mandarin. This suit looks relatively little like the one in the comics, which looked more like a deep sea diving suit, complete with glass helmet on top. The comic version of the suit included some underwater themed weapons including the ability to charge like an electric eel and shoot ink like a squid.

 

Hypervelocity Autonomous Personnel Protector

Image

This armor, known affectionately as H.A.P.P.Y. is difficult to get into without divulging some larger ‘Iron Man 3’ spoilers and plot points. But it includes some new and improved A.I. that assists Iron Man in battle.

 
 
 
 
 
 
MARK XLII-R – RAPID EVACUATION SITUATION CONTROL UNILATERAL ENFORCER (R.E.S.C.U.E)
This Armor like the H.A.P.P.Y. suit comes with a new A.I., this time modeled after Pepper Potts and modeled with firefighting skills
 
Other rumored Armors
 
MARK XXII – LAYERED PLATING ARMOR v.01
 
While experimenting with various forms of armor formation, TONY STARK designs this armor with the concept of retractable layers. It allows this armor to fold into a more compact form, making it more portable than the MARK V armor. This one resembles the classic/Spandex Armor, v.01 has the horned face, v.02 has the rounded face with a different color palette
 
MARK XV – STORED KINETIC INTEGRATED NETWORK (S.K.I.N) ARMOR
Stark created this while attempting to create a new form of malleable liquid metal that could be configured into other shapes, It looks like the comic SKIN Armor but has huge shoulders.
 
MARK XL – ASGARDIAN DESTROYER ARMOR
Image
Stark come up with this armor design after stealing blueprints from SHIELD hellicareer. Based on mecha version of Destroyer it is still an incomplete prototype.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
MARK XLII – X01 – PARTICLE RADIATION CANNON ATTACHMENT
Unable to deal with FIREPOWER’s fiery attacks, TONY STARK designs the PARTICLE RADIATION CANNON to absorb and channel Taggert’s heat against him. It comes with a huge cannon attached to the chest is based on bleeding edge technology.
 
MARK XLIX – HEART BREAKER v.02

• Having his armor badly damaged in his battle with the MANDARIN, TONY STARK modifies and upgrades his HEART BREAKER ARMOR into its second version. Equipped with more ARC REACTORS to increase its output and offensive capability, this is the ULTIMATE IRON MAN.
• More cohesive version of the Heart Breaker armor. Color palette based off the initial Ultimate Iron Man armor.

MARK L – EXTREMIS ARMOR
This one is created by perfecting the extermis technology where Armor becomes part of Tony’s body. It is the Hybrid of Bleeding Edge and Extremis Tech.

MARK LI – ORIGINAL ARMOR [ REVISITED]
After all the EXTREMIS technology is disabled by Dr Hansen, TONY STARK is left unable to tap on his newer EXTREMIS-based suits for battle. Having no other options, STARK uses his original armor to battle Mandarin. This brings him to square one, where the movie started
