Joel Kinnaman dons the suit in the Jose Padilha-directed reboot now rebuilding in theaters February 13, 2014.
When a follower noted they had yet to see that design online, he replied, “the whole film he will wear that one… that’s the new slick design..” As in slick new design I think he means “Halo” or “Iron Man”-inspired tin can. It makes sense though. There are multiple suits in the script – a la the first Iron Man movie – the black one we saw earlier being one of them and this one (likely) being another.
In the updated software, “The year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.“
