Yet another Namor connection! Everybody take a closer look at photo #9

i found a behind the scenes photo of rdjr. in his dressing room...

Tony93 - 10/1/2012, 1:10 PM

The redhead is hot.

ZOMG a Campagna T-Rex. Jealous D:<
SpoonWielder - 10/1/2012, 1:15 PM
Yeah no kidding, wanna explain this Namor connection to us idiots who don't see it?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 10/1/2012, 1:15 PM
I don't get it. What is so triumphant?
GoILL - 10/1/2012, 1:20 PM
Is the Neptunes Net sign supposed to be the connection?
kackbratze - 10/1/2012, 1:21 PM
@SpoonWielder: Well, it's probably the sign that says "Neptune's NET". As in Neptune, god of WATER and SEA... ;)

Looks like they added a new photo that shows what I was talking about in photo #9 even better. Neptune's Net. Neptune is the god of the sea and in the comics he sent Namor to find his trident so that he could rule Atlantis.
SpoonWielder - 10/1/2012, 1:24 PM
Oh I see. Couldn't see the forest for the tress. That's pretty flimsy. Don't really think that's a connection.
calin88 - 10/1/2012, 1:27 PM
@CaptainObvious LMAO!
Suede - 10/1/2012, 1:29 PM
Neptune's Net is an actual place in Malibu which would make perfect sense if the main character lived near there......oh.......wait a minute. Try again on that one.
EstimatedProphet - 10/1/2012, 1:29 PM
@SpoonWilder: It's definitely flimsy, but the flimsy connections are really starting to pile up. I'd say at this point there's enough to say they aren't just a coincidence.

Great news!
superotherside - 10/1/2012, 1:31 PM
It's great he's back and that photo is hilarious. But what on earth is this?

Rumors have it that there are 40 different Iron Man suits will be remotely controlled from his new suit. But what if they did them all different designs etc. And what if that was one of the suits! That would be awesome!
EstimatedProphet - 10/1/2012, 1:33 PM
@superotherside: I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's already been confirmed to be the new War Machine.
AC1 - 10/1/2012, 1:34 PM
I was worried about this, but then I watched Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and I now have complete faith in this film. Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr worked brilliantly together, and I think this could very well be the best in the trilogy.

I still think the armor looks [frick]ing awful though.
RamonSuarez - 10/1/2012, 1:35 PM
OMG! Did anyone catch the Black Panther reference?

There is a black guy in the back of photo number 1!
genesis609 - 10/1/2012, 1:37 PM
I HATE THAT ITS WAR MACHINE.... I HATE IT! lol.... no i do though, leave his armor alone damn...
ksommer - 10/1/2012, 1:38 PM
That beard is looking pretty grey....
FennecPilot - 10/1/2012, 1:39 PM
Sorry - no connection to Namor. Neptune's Net is just a normal sign for a tourist joint. This is not a part of the film nor done deliberately.

And remember kids, absence of evidence is not evidence!

(oh my god, wait.....there was no mention that Luke Cage was NOT going to be in the movie, so Luke Cage MUST be making a cameo in Iron Man 3)
siggisuperman - 10/1/2012, 1:40 PM
I hope RDJ will have time to come to NYC :(
FennecPilot - 10/1/2012, 1:41 PM
When they interviewed Black he never said that Reed Richards was not going to be in the film, so what does that mean? I think it means Reed Richards is going to be in the film because Shane never said he WASN'T going to be in the film.

Also, this is taking place near a beach, so I think that means another villain in Sandman. I am pretty sure they would not film this near sand otherwise.
danetooeasy - 10/1/2012, 1:46 PM
I nominate THEDARKKNIGHT1939's comment, what IS triumphant about this?
danetooeasy - 10/1/2012, 1:50 PM
I mean, this is great news, I love the guy and his movies, but whaaaa, triumphant?
GoILL - 10/1/2012, 1:59 PM
I'm guessing it's triumphant because of the ankle injury he suffered back in August.
JayJayCAW - 10/1/2012, 2:01 PM
LMAO @CaptainObvious, I was actually thinking that when I saw the above pix lol
CharlesLord - 10/1/2012, 2:04 PM
lmfao they have war machine covered up like we havent already seen the suit
TheAbomination - 10/1/2012, 2:06 PM
Awesome news! Glad to see he's back to normal. Can't wait for that trailer!
SomTingWong - 10/1/2012, 2:24 PM
Mr. stark... welcome back.
@cipher well said
grambo90 - 10/1/2012, 2:26 PM
Gotta love RDJ!
superotherside - 10/1/2012, 2:42 PM
EstimatedProphet Ahhh, didn't think of that for some reason. Thanks for pointing that out! Probably is then, still I think they'll make the suits different colors and hopefully we'll him use at least some of them for different functions etc.

If the rumor is indeed true.
Ha1frican - 10/1/2012, 2:43 PM
"oooohhhh its good to be back"
Optimus83 - 10/1/2012, 2:49 PM
