Iron Man 3 director Shane Black and writer Drew Pearce reveal that they did at one point consider using the iconic monster Fin Fang Foom in the movie before deciding to incorporate him in a more subtle fashion. Read on for details! WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!
The winner (@Jasper_UTF, a.k.a. MovieMaster) of our recent Iron Man 3 contest - in which we offered one lucky fan the chance to interview Shane Black and Drew Pearce - has gotten back to us with some highlights from their chat and they include some very interesting tidbits of information! In this latest instalment, the duo reveal that they at one point considered including Fin Fang Foom (who appeared in Jon Favreau's short-lived Marvel Cinematic Universe set Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas series) in the threequel before incorporating the giant creature into the movie another way.
Because Fin Fang Foom has been hinted at in the other films, did you have any thoughts of putting Fin Fang Foom into it?
Drew: I think we toyed around with it at some points.
Shane: Well, the chest is Fin Fang Foom...
Drew: And on the inside of his cape-
Shane: But that's not really in the movie, it's more in the trailer.
Drew: It isn't!?

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.
