I think this is the first version of the suit. like how iron mans first suit looked like crap. I wonder something tho, will his final version of the suit when hes fully armored be 10 different colors of primer? i mean he is russian and probally built the suit in his garage with parts from salvaged cars.
The villain’s alter ego, Ivan Vanko, is a Russian who “has constructed his own version of a suit,” Favreau says. Among the creative innovations: a pair of whips, powered by the suit’s glowing chest piece, that are expected to keep Iron Man cracking.
Whiplash “is going to light them up,” Rourke quips.
