He was halfway there in The Avengers anyway, with the folded-up Mk VII flying to him and deploying around him based on the Q-ray bracelets he was wearing.

In the comics, his "Renaissance Armor" of the late 90s or so folded up into a similar flying turd which could home in on his watch, and would unfold and envelop him in a similar fashion. The floating armor pieces we see described above is actually pre-Extremis, though the Extremis made it telepathically-controlled. So, it's not brand-new an may not involve Tony turning himself all neo-cyberpunk on us.

Well, yeah.

Except this film is stated to be based on the Extremis storyline, which you should actually read at some point so we're all on the same page.
