New Concept Art of Tony Stark’s Hulkbuster Armor from Avengers: Infinity War
Face it, Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne run neck and neck when it comes to their toys. However, this new look at the improved Hulkbuster armor may just give Tony a slight edge.
Last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Hulkbuster is one of the coolest weapons in Iron Man’s arsenal. An updated model of the armor will be used by Bruce Banner himself in Avengers: Infinity War.
It’s only speculation at this point, but the use of Stark’s Hulkbuster may indicate Banner’s reluctance to let the Hulk loose on Earth. Wearing the armor will allow him to be useful without risking any collateral damage Hulk may cause. As seen in the trailer, at some point he must change his mind. It’s clear Hulk is fighting alongside his fellow Avengers and a number of Wakandan warriors.
Will Banner try to rekindle his romance with Black Widow or will this be another plot point that gets ignored? What about Betty Ross? Where has she been since The Incredible Hulk? It’s surprising the Hulkbuster will be seen again at all. It received a sufficient beating during the fight with Hulk in Age of Ultron. And, while it proved it can hold him at bay for a short time, the armor is naturally no match for Hulk.
This is just concept art and the final version in the film may differ.
