Marvel Studios concept artist Phil Saunders shared the Iron Man Mark 40 armor design and it's simply spectacular.
In an Instagram post, the artist laid out what the goals of this powerful armor were. The fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe you will recall that the Mark 40 made a brief appearance in Iron Man 3. All those armor that Tony Stark I had created they had a lot of different uses and scenarios. But the Mark 40 was especially powerful if used in the right situation. The team nicknamed this suit as the "shotgun" armor due to the speed associated with its design. When you see the images below, it's easy to see how they came to that conclusion. Phil Saunders even mentions that Mark 40 was one of his favorite creations from the movie.
"By popular demand … Iron Man Mark 40. Slim, lightly armored, and aerodynamic, this suit was designed for extreme speed," Saunders wrote. "I figured it out so that the arms and legs joined the torso to form a rigid fuselage, but sadly that functionality never appeared in the movie. However, it was one of my favorite designs! ”

Who will inherit Stark technology?
One of the great attractions of Marvel movies, undoubtedly are the ingenious inventions of Iron Man, as is Mark 40. Therefore, it would be a real shame if we did not see his designs again in the next installments of the saga. In Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), the movie that was released after Avengers: Endgame (2019) and the death of Tony Stark, it was precisely Peter Parker who used that technology, but was deceived by Mysterio. So from now on I could have new heirs. On the one hand there would be Harley Keener (played by Ty Simpkins), the boy of iron Man 3 who mysteriously appeared at Tony Stark's funeral. But it is also speculated that we could get to see Ironheart, a young woman who fuses her own ideas with these already existing armor.
