It seems like there’s a pretty big leak in the pipeline for Avengers 4 as even more promo and concept art has trickled out, which is far more revealing this time. The biggest being a new suit for Iron Man that has never been shown before.
Even through all the pixels, it’s easy to tell that this new suit is directly inspired by the classic Iron Man suit of the 60’s and 70s, when his armor used to look like a skintight muscle suit, which is especially noticeably with the biceps. As pointed out by additionally photos and Jeremy Conard of MCUCosmic, this suit is Mark 85, which is a relatively big leap from Mark 50 from Avengers: Infinity War, but it’s not terribly surprising as we’ve seen what happens when Tony Stark spirals after a traumatic incident and how he copes, as seen in Iron Man 3. So, failing to save half the universe and his surrogate son is definitely traumatic enough to have him spiral again, as Tony tends to do.
Or it could be further evidence that an extensive amount of time has past between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 as previously rumored.
There’s promo art for the Mark 50 suit from Infinity War in A4 and now art for the Mark 85.
The 85 has the same color scheme as the classic armor fro the comics.

Another big leak is the reveal of what definitely looks like Ronin, the other alter ego of Clint Barton that he took in the comics, in full costume. He will likely take this new, darker, identity after his family has been dusted by Thanos, as rumored and speculated since the movie was released.
Even obstructed, the costume looks remarkably accurate to the original design from the comics, even using a sword. I wonder if he’ll have nunchucks too, but that might be pushing it.
We also have an even better look at that Captain America scale armor with a full body shot this time. It’s great to see Rogers sporting the costume again after abandoning it in Avengers: Infinity War, along with having the Avengers insignia on his shoulder again.
Interestingly enough, we also have what looks like photo shoots for the characters with the least obscured or minimized being Brie Larson as Captain Marvel in what is likely her Avengers 4 costume.
Since the trailer was released, we can now tell that her costume doesn’t seem to changed significantly. These photo shoots could either be for promotional material, posters, or reference material for marketing for products and toys. Another big leak is further confirmation about Thanos’ appearance in Avengers 4 and his fancy looking bladed weapon.
It also seems like Thanos is holding something else in his left hand in the middle image the fifth row down. Is it another weapon? It really seems like, unlike Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos isn’t taking any risks when facing the Avengers, now wearing armor and brandishing a weapon besides the powerful Gauntlet.
I wonder what more will leak in the coming weeks or tomorrow, but it’s exciting and sad to see such classic designs finally being integrated into the MCU after over a decade only to likely be their last appearance.
