I'm sure by now we've all seen this picture....
Now what are my thoughts on it?
I think it looks pretty cool, and I think that all these people who say that this movie is going to be crap just by looking at one picture
, are ridiculous idiots who only come on the internet to complain and b!tch because they can't look deeper into the picture and see possible connections.
For instance sure the suit isn't anything like actual armor, but it definitely looks better then the suit from the actual comics.
I'm sure a blind man would look at that costume and laugh their ass off. So comparing the two....the movie version looks much better.
However I'm sure the picture we're looking at is actually just a prototype of the suit, much like the Iron Man Mark 1
. That's why it looks like it was constructed using scrap metal and various other crap. Also look at the pants that Mickey Rourke
is wearing, they look like pants from a prison outfit.
Here's my theory.....
Mickey Rourke plays a Russian man named Ivan Vanko
who is a prison inmate that somehow sees the Iron Man
Perhaps on television after the press incident at the end of the first movie)
and decides to use a similar technology to escape from Prison. While trying to escape, he runs into a drunk Iron Man
and Iron Man
loses the fight miserably (
Which is why he needs War Machine
to die while he constructs a more improved suit
This is only a guess however, but it's at least a semi educated guess. At least my educated guess makes some form of sense. It explains the prototype look of the suit, the prison outfit, and why the prison guards are sitting behind the fence doing nothing (
If you were trying to stop a supervillain from escaping and were getting your ass kicked and all of a sudden a superhero appeared...I'm sure you'd sit back and watch the two fight)
. Mickey Rourke said that he did research for his role by going to a prison, so it works.
So what do you guys think? Do you think I'm right, do you think I'm wrong? What are your thoughts on the picture?
