Last month, the first official photo from the set of Iron Man 3 was revealed, and now Marvel has released the first concept art from the film by artist Ryan Meinerding. An imperilled Tony Stark appears to be mid-transformation into Iron Man, seemingly without the aid of bracelets or briefcases. This might be the strongest indication to date that the film will be taking elements from the Iron Man: Extremis storyline, in which Stark uses nanotechnology to literally store the suit within his body. Could this be Iron Man Armour Mark VIII? Or it could just be a really cool picture. Iron Man 3 is scheduled for 3 May 2013, and is currently filming.
