They’re pouring latex on him to make a false chest. So that they can place the arc reactor prop in him and make it legitimately look like it’s embedded in is flesh and with tears and scar tissue. The latex is colored so they can see where they are applying and how thick the layers are. It will then be airbrushed to his skintone and details like nipples scar tissue discoloration will be added.
Here’s that picture
Then the reactor prop is added to the dimple. Basically the latex becomes fake skin and they tear part of the center open to embed it.
Now you can see how realistic it looks.
I cannot express enough how much I love little behind the scenes things like this.
tony stark thinks about other people constantly
he thinks, can i trust these people? or will they betray me? are they talking to me because they like me or because they want something from me? because he HAS TO, because most of the time the answer is the latter, because his father was always disappointed and obie stole his heart and the government tried to steal his suit and shield was just making weapons the whole time, because tony stark has trust issues a mile wide and authority issues to higher than the empire state, because he has some damn good reasons to.
tony stark thinks, how the fuck does it work if you can’t program it? he thinks, pepper+strawberries=?, he thinks, bruce+?=giant green rage monster, and we make jokes out of that because it’s so foreign to us but where the hell do you think tony learned how people worked? a tiny genius, he never had any kind of elementary school playground, just an empty house and an emptier father, and he’s had three friends in the world and one of them he built by himself.
here is a list of things tony stark built by himself: his house. his butler. his heart. the suit of armor that surrounds him. all the suits of armor, because if you think iron man’s the only one you’re an idiot. here is a list of what tony stark is: genius, first, because he’s a genius first, he’s always been a genius first, it’s what took him into afghanistan and out of it, and then a billionaire because that was from his father, and then a playboy because he doesn’t know how to react to people otherwise, and philanthropist comes last. here is a list of the people who love tony: rhodey and pepper, and look at how tony treats them: he never asks, just throws variable after variable into their equations, trying to make them come out positive. here is a list of the people who do not love tony: everyone else, up to and including tony stark.
so when you say “tony stark is a self-absorbed egomaniac”
you’re right, but you’re wrong.
you’re right because tony relies on himself, has always relied on himself, has no one else to rely on but himself. you’re wrong because of tony were absorbed in himself, he’d fall apart in a day. he hates what he finds inside himself too much to spend much time there.
Smiling Avengers: Tony Stark
Two times that Rhodey hands Tony something and nobody tries to analyze the meanings of or even remember, for that matter.
biggestbaddestwolf also mentions: “you’ve got rhodey handing him an award and the reactor, both items of significance when it comes to tony symbolism and those movies.”
seekingthecrazy: People also forget Tony Stark did not hesitate to show weakness when he a, collapsed against Rhodey in the desert and b, when he visibly clutched Rhodey for support as they exited the plane in Iron Man.
Rhodey and Tony, either as platonic soulmates or a slash couple, makes more sense to me than Tony and Steve Rogers. It even makes more sense to me than Tony and Pepper, whom I can not see crossing that professional line.
Tony may have given Pepper his company, but Tony gave Rhodey a suit. What did Tony say about the Iron Man suit? They are one. Tony shared the most intimate part of himself with Rhodey.
Granted, the dynamic changed when the part was recast, but in the first movie, RDJ and TH showed the complex relationship perfectly.
i have nothing to contribute to this except these
which i think we can all agree show off his

You must know it is a terrifying sight, because you and I are living the same way.
Just sitting here minding my own business when BAM Howard Stark feels.
From Iron Man:
- “They say that the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only have to fire once. That’s how Dad did it, that’s how America does…
It’s a terrible privilege.
