Any old Iron

A couple of weeks ago we got a first sighting of Iron Man’s Mark I armour; now Entertainment Weekly
has given us our first look at Tony Stark’s classic red and gold suit. Frankly it looks ace, managing to keep the essence of the comic book look while being grounded firmly in the real world. Designed by the legendary Stan Winston, the costume will be filled by Robert Downey Jr as crime fighting industrialist with a dodgy ticker Tony Stark.

The film is currently shooting under the watchful eye of Elf and Zathura director Jon Favreau, ahead of a May 2008 release.
