Does IRON MAN 3 Jump Ahead to the Mark XLVII (47) Armor?

Over the course of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Avengers, we’ve seen Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) go through seven different Iron Man armors.  The Iron Man 3 footage we saw at Comic-Con had Tony testing a new armor that he could summon piece-by-piece (with varying levels of difficulty).  We’ve seen a glimpse at a new armor that inverts the red-gold color scheme, and we assumed this was the Mark VIII armor.  Turns out, we may have been off by XXXIX.

Hit the jump for more [potential spoilers ahead].  The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale, and Guy PearceIron Man 3 opens May 3, 2013.

[Warning: Potential Spoilers Ahead]

According to Latino Review, The Mandarin’s (Kingsley) Extremis bad guys are going to be too powerful for a mano-y-mano fight, so Tony (as is his way) changes the game.  Before going out to the fight, he mentions the Mark XLVII to Pepper (Paltrow), and she asks what happens to the other marks in between, “and Tony just smiles.”

The Mark XLVII allows Tony to control other armors in battle, so he would basically have drones on his side to fight against the Extremis boys.  I guess even though Vanko (Mickey Rourke) was a bad guy, it doesn’t mean his desire to create drones was a bad idea.

    if the drone thing is true, we’d better a stealth armor and a hulk buster armor in this film!

    This is stupid – i hope this is not true and there are so many suits. That would just ruin the movie and the franchise.

    • Barrett

      Uhhh actually Tony has that many and more in the comics, so if you think it would “ruin” the movie and franchise, you must not know jack shit about the comics :\

  • Mark

    If you look at mark 7 and mark 47 they look exactly the same other then the color scheme

  • bhaskar

    i think that this armor can be m8. If its not then it must be extremis armor
