Legacy Effects who has worked with Marvel is involved in TALOS project to help design and 3D print the prototypes.

U.S. government is reportedly developing a real-life "" suit for the army. According to The Wall Street Journal, Legacy Effects, the company who worked in the Marvel film franchise, is tapped to help design and 3D print the prototypes for the body armor.

The project is called TALOS. Private companies like Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, and Raytheon are involved in the making of the suit that will be weaponized and bulletproof. It will also monitor vitals and give its wearer superhuman strength and perception.

Legacy Effects reportedly lends a helping hand on behalf of another company, Ekso Bionics. "When you're doing something for a movie it is all make-believe," Legacy founder Lindsay MacGowan said. "Whereas, for the military, that's really not going to be the case."
