Overnight at Marvel.com, the House of Ideas showed off their latest: an all-new armor for the metal Avenger, Iron Man.
This newest iteration of ‘ole Shellhead’s battle-dress features the familiar Red and Gold color scheme, but a streamlined look and redistribution of colors gives it a unique style.
According to Marvel’s piece, the look was co-designed by now longtime Invincible Iron Man writer Matt Fraction and the designer for the Iron Man and Thor movies, Ryan Meinerding. Fraction is quoted as saying, ""The inspiration for the new design came from thinking about a sleeker, leaner, tougher Iron Man. If technology is increasingly getting smaller and lighter it seems like the Iron Man should do the same: ergonomic and aerodynamic."
Marvel does note it will still be Tony Stark in the new armor, and the debut will come in April’s Invincible Iron Man #25.
James Cameron will produce a remake of Fantastic Voyage using the same 3D digital technology he used in Avatar, according to Variety. Cameron also told British journalists that he had worked out stories for two Avatar sequels, which would use the CG world created for the first film. Fox would not confirm plans for the sequels, according to the report.
The investment in the new technology for Avatar was substantial, and all concerned are looking for new ways to use it.

The University of Florida may have a sales pitch a lot of other universities in the same state and around the country don’t have.
Should the zombie apocalypse occur, they have a plan to deal with it.
The school has a plan for responding to the undead on its Web site among outlines for dealing with hurricanes and pandemics.
The exercise lays out how university officials would respond to attacks by “flesh-eating, apparently life impaired individuals.” It notes that a zombie outbreak might include “documentation of lots of strange moaning.”
A University of Florida spokesman says the exercise was written by an employee at the school’s academic technology office to “add a little bit of levity” to disaster preparation discussions.
