Maleficent's King Stefan suit of armour worn by Sharlto Copley...

In Disney's Maleficent the real villains seem to be men and their greed and ambition in the live-action movie, not the iconic (misunderstood) female Sleeping Beauty villain. Here's the fantastic suit of armour worn by Sharlto Copley as 'King Stefan', the father of 'Princess Aurora', in the fantasy movie's fatal showdown with the winged fairy.
