Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Good god, that gold metal looks like shit.

Who was the asshole in the art dept. who thought that beige and gold were interchangeable?

I know the comics use this color scheme, and it still looks like shit there too.

Did Loeb have something to do with this?

And no, it's not closer to what gold titanium looks like in RL. TiAu (which is actually a very common alloy) has a variety of shades, which includes the one's used in the previous movies. This shade just doesn't work.

Oh, and War Machine/Iron Patriot looks fine now. I mean, it's kinda dumb, but if it's a PR stunt from the WH (who, going by IM2 rules, are probably FUCKING IDIOTS), it's not too bad actually.
