Literal Iron Man

Folks, we are just a little under two months away from the much anticipated release of The Avengers and there are several reasons I’m excited, chief amongst them the return of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Downey’s portrayal of the arrogant but endearing billionaire and superhero Tony Stark has been a highlight of the Marvel Movieverse and I can’t wait to see him working alongside six of  Marvel’s other major heroes. However, after I saw the photo below, I realized that what I really want to see is Tony Stark strapping in to a literal Iron Man costume.

This amazing costume was spotted at Atlanta’s DragonCon in 2008 by Redditor Ryan0617. Check out the full thread here and a few more photos of this clever Iron Man suit here.
