Comicbook.com had the chance to speak to Weta Digital’s Matt Aitken about supervising on Iron Man’s look in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. Getting the nano-particle armor to look and seem like a real thing was a tall task for the VFX team.
"Here in Infinity War, and then subsequently in Endgame, he's got the Bleeding Edge nano-tech that he's developed," Aitken remembers. " And that's about this idea that the suit is actually made up of these nanoparticles that can kind of form a fluid and move around on the surface of the suit, and reform different weapons, and then kind of solidify and crystallize into a rigid, metal suit. We developed that tech for Infinity War, and then really extended it for Endgame for two particular sequences."
JoeToys describes their business, “Our task is to build suits of armors designed from movies ,comic books and video games. The history can be tracked back to 2013 when there was only Joe who was making Iron Man suits.
