Marvel To Release Two Versions Of IRON MAN 3
It seems fans will have an extra version of Marvel's upcoming Iron Man threequel to track down as the studio plan to release a "China only" cut of the film, which might contain some significantly different elements. Read on for the statement in full..
When Iron Man 3 is released in China on May 3rd, they'll be seeing a different version of the movie. We don't know just HOW different, but the statement below reveals that the Chinese cut will feature an appearance by the lovely Fan Bingbing (who will also play Blink in X-Men: DOFP) and some "specially prepared" bonus footage.
Marvel Studios and DMG announced that a Chinese version of Iron Man 3 will be released in China on a date to be announced in the near future. DMG, a Chinese media and entertainment company, collaborated with Marvel Studios on the Chinese elements in the film, and is marketing and distributing the film in China. While Marvel and DMG have decided not to apply for co-production status in China, the film includes significant Chinese elements. Renowned Chinese actor Wang Xueqi will appear in both the studio’s Chinese version of the film and in its international and domestic US version. Both versions of the film include Iron Man 3 footage filmed in Beijing in December. The Chinese version of the film will also feature a special appearance of China’s top actress, Fan Bingbing, and will offer specially prepared bonus footage made exclusively for the Chinese audience. Marvel Studios’ experience working on this film with Fan Bingbing and Wang Xueqi and in shooting in China has been very positive and has created a springboard for future collaboration with China’s talented stars and its growing film and television industry. The Iron Man cast and filmmakers look forward to bringing Iron Man back to China.
I wouldn't expect any particularly big changes plot wise, just a few extra scenes of Stark doing stuff in China most likely; but you never know. It should be interesting when we can eventually compare both versions.
