Marvel Int'l President Dishes Out IRON MAN 3 Spoilers?
Seemingly confirming another Tony Stark ally that'll suit up in the forthcoming Iron Man threequel, hit the jump and check out a couple of potential spoilers reportedly via Marvel's International president!
According to Brazilian entertainment site Omelete, Simon Philips, President of Marvel Ent. International and Consumer Products, recently attended a presentation in São Paulo, where he offered details for the highly-anticipated Iron Man 3 movie. With a spoiler warning, read on below!
A transcription of the spoilerific report, via Protocida, reveals that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will eventually have an underground Hall of Armors with at least 16 new armors, including a few classic designs from the comics. Simon Philips also revealed, or confirmed, that Virginia Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) will indeed get in on the action, this time by donning her own suit of armor; similar to doing so with the ‘Rescue’ suit in the comic books.
In addition, the report also captioned a scene from last month's teaser trailer, where Tony Stark is seen lying on a hospital bed, seemingly readying an operation. As expected, Philips apparently confirmed that it's during that scene that Stark is being injected with the Extremis virus. And as a result, he'll be able to create new armors from leftover pieces of older ones. For example, as Protocida notes, Stark will use arms and legs from previous models to create a new design.
Omelete is somewhat credible with several interviews and other exclusive material in the past. And the possibility of Pepper Potts suiting up in the Shane Black-directed actioner wouldn't exactly be something unforeseen. Marvel Studios head Kevin Fiege & Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau teased the idea earlier this year, saying they almost went ahead with the idea in the previous films. And the Hall of Armor bit will likely be seen during the film's penultimate sequence. What do you think?
Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. 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. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
