Like in the comics, the cinematic version of Iron Man is always updating his armor to make it more formidable in battle. And in these new set photos from Iron Man 3, courtesy of The Daily Mail, we get our clearest look yet at what Ol’ Shell Head will be sporting in his latest adventure. The original color scheme is still present on this armor, but this time there is much more gold than ever before.

We’re also given a look at the Iron Patriot armor that will be in the movie. In the comics, the Iron Patriot was actually Norman Osborn, of Spider-Man fame, but that obviously won’t be happening here. We have no idea who is under the helmet for this version, so we’ll have to wait for more information to come out to find out for sure. Check out the images below:


Iron Man 3 will be released on May 3, 2013.
