AceShowbiz - Iron Man will get an upgraded armor that he needs in "Avengers: Infinity War". Fans can now get a close-up look at Mark 52 a.k.a. the Bleeding Edge armor in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Marvel's superheroes on 15 different covers.
In one version of the covers, Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man wears the new suit, "which emerges across his body from a new arc reactor and includes 'wings' on the back and arms that serve as rocket boosters into deep space."
In an interview with EW, Robert Downey Jr. addresses Tony's relationship with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). "It was hard to thread Pepper through every story that Tony was in, so we took opportunities to say, 'We're taking a break, and it's my fault,' " he jokingly says. In a more serious note, he adds, "Now, he and Pepper have kind of locked it up. We were talking about them living in some eco-lodge together, but then we thought, 'Eh, any time they move somewhere [villains] just blow it up, so no one's gonna believe that it'll stay long.' "

With the third "Avengers" movie getting more crowded than ever, Kevin Fiege, president of Marvel Studios, hints this could be the end for a few characters. "The notion of an ending, the notion of a finale, became very intriguing to us," he teases, "in large part because you don't see it that often in this particular genre." Screenwriter Stephen McFeely echoes, "It's safe to say we will say farewell to people."
Dubbed the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before, "Avengers: Infinity War" brings together Marvel's heroes including Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Vision (Paul Bettany), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Winter Soldier, Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Black Panther.
They will be joined by the Guardians of the Galaxy as they fight against the big bad Thanos, played by Josh Brolin. Anthony and Joe Russo directed the third "Avengers" movie, which is due out May 4 in the United States.
