The Avengers are inevitably going to head to cosmos during the Avengers: Infinity War and Untitled Sequel movies in 2018 and 2019. They will be pitted against Thanos in a united rally to save the universe from destruction.
This will mark the first trip outside of Earth for most of the team. Iron Man, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, the Vision, Hawkeye, and Black Widow have never been the cosmos. In fact, it is only Thor and the Hulk who will have had any experience with the extraterrestrials by the time Infinity War kicks off.
When it does, it's a safe bet that Iron Man will have a new suit. However, it would be a little bit surprising if it is designed by Asgardians!
Still, in a recent post to Facebook, Tony Stark actor Robert Downey Jr is teasing just that.
The image Downey Jr shared is not officially affiliated with Avengers: Infinity War. In fact, it is actually a design by Prince Armory -- a company which specialized in creating these types of armor.
While it may be nothing more than a costume fans were able to purchase a couple of years ago in the image, Downey Jr's tease might be rooted in events coming up in Avengers: Infinity War. After all, Iron Man has seen various version of Asgardian or space armor on the pages of Marvel Comics.
Just like the Hulk, Thor gets a worst case scenario treatment from Tony Stark. Where there is a Hulkbuster armor, there is a Thorbuster armor.
Otherwise known as Model 23, the Thorbuster armor appeared in Iron Man comics, first popping up in Iron Man #64.
Then there is the Agardian Iron Man armor. This design doesn't resemble to design posted by Downey Jr as closely as the Thorbuster does, though.
The Asgardian Iron Man armor is made to reflect the look of the Destroyer in the Fear Itself event story from Marvel Comics in 2011.
Whether or not Tony Stark will be wearing any of the epic space armors he has created on the pages of Marvel Comics will be revealed when Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters in May of 2018.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in theaters now. Spider-Man: Homecoming lands on July 7, 2017, followed by Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017. After that Black Panther debuts on February 16, 2018, while Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018. Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated for July 6, 2018, followed by Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019.
