Possible Major Spoilers For IRON MAN 3 And THOR: THE DARK WORLD
While chatting on Bombad Radio, Marvel Studios stuntman Andrew Lawden spoke very freely about some of the things we can expect in two of Marvel's highly anticipated phase 2 movies, Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3. As I said, we can't be certain all of this is completely accurate, but I can't see any reason for the guy to make it up either, so we'll run under the assumption that these are legit SPOILERS, and you can consider that your final warning! If you don't want to know details on the likes of a Mandarin/Iron Man clash, plot development in Thor 2 involving Jane Foster, and a main character's death, stop reading now..
Stuntman Andrew Lawden has revealed quite a few details from both upcoming phase 2 Marvel movies in an interview with Bombad Radio. We can't be 100% sure everything he says it on the level, but he mentions some very SPOILERIFIC things - including a character's death - so be warned just in case!..
THOR: THE DARK WORLD - "Thor becomes reunited with Jane who becomes possessed by a Dark Spirit, which is connected with the Dark Elves; a race the Asgardians have fallen out with many years beforehand [...] The Dark Elves attack Asgard, and they take a huge hit. So Thor has to rebuild Asgard by putting together an army to go and take the battle to the Dark Elves and defeat them. But the only way he can do this is – he needs to cross over to the Dark World, and the only person who has access to the dark side of Asgard is his old brother Loki, who at the beginning of the film is locked up in prison.
So what happens is Thor basically has to negotiate this truce with Loki, and he goes on this great trek with Jane, all three of them. They go to this far side of Asgard, which is being shot in Iceland, where they train and assemble an army to go and attack the Dark Elves’ world.
“But the exclusive twist…is that one of the things that happens during the Asgardian attack is that Thor’s mother gets killed. So it becomes like a vengeance thing. And they were keeping very tight-lipped about what actually happens with Loki, you don’t know whether he redeems himself or he’s still the bad egg.”
IRON MAN 3 - “Well, there’s going to be a big fight sequence with The Mandarin, who’s the main villain, which will involve none other than forty different iron man suits. There’s an amazing rescue where The Mandarin basically wants to bring down the American government and kill the President, and he launches an attack on Air Force One. All of them – the President and his men and staff – get sucked out of the plane, and Iron Man rescues them by forming this amazing human chain in the sky.
“There’s some pretty spectacular stuff that goes on. There’s an amazing sequence where he has this rooftop house that he builds to store all his Iron Man suits, and it gets attacked by The Mandarin and these gunships [...] I was shocked to discover there are like forty Iron Man suits written into this feature in various ways…so that’s going to be pretty impressive. But apparently he needs this Iron Man army to go up against The Mandarin’s forces.”
Well, there you go. All sounds plausible, and if it is, what would you guys make of some of the big revelations - in the Thor sequel especially? Sound off below.
