That image does, out of context, seem to be Extremis aka "nanotech armor stored in his blood/bones" which imo may be taking things a bit OTT.
Despite having just dealt with aliens I think the audience for this character appreciates the down to earth pseudo-reality about the armor, it's creation and application.
I certainly did enjoy the realistic take on the character in the first two films. But like you said, aliens. There's no going back now, all bets are off.
With that said, I'm sure IM3 is going to play it a more realistically than Avengers did, I'm sure they'll save the "out there" stuff for the likes of "Thor" and the Avengers sequel.
