Director/writer Shane Black has a thing for Christmas, e.g. Lethal Weapon The Last Boy Scout The Long Kiss Goodnight Kiss Kiss Bang Bang take place during the Christmas season. In this inteview he explains: If you're doing something on an interesting scale that involves a whole universe of characters, one way to unite them is to have them all ...

My theory goes with the assumption that He could have removed the shrapnel at any time after coming back to the States Bear with me. Imagine, you're Tony Stark. You're told by a genius scientist that he can't remove a piece of shrapnel due to sterilization and equipment purposes. You become dependent upon the mini-arc reactor that you put inside your ...

The post credit scene just suggest that Tony is telling the whole story to Bruce. And Bruce is not present in the story and its a stand alone Iron man film, so showing other Avengers in it kills off its stand alone feel. As of Tony's offer to work with Bruce seems rejected as he is not with tony in the whole story. Here are Kevin Feige's words on the ...

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said in November 2012: Iron Man 3 doesn't feature any of the other Avengers, or Nick Fury showing up, or any of those world-blending conceits that the Phase One films had. You have to keep in mind that Iron Man 3 had been in the works for almost a year, year and a half before The Avengers was released. We're ...

Feige recently took to Twitter to engage with fans, touching upon S.H.I.E.L.D.’s absence in IM3, amongst other things: S.H.I.E.L.D. was very busy, as will be revealed in future films. - Kevin Feige It’s hard to tell from that tweet whether there was a plan from the start for this ‘revelation’ about S.H.I.E.L.D.’s absence, or whether ...

As Tony demonstrates the ability to remotely control his own suits in the movie, it's not beyond reason to assume that the same would be possible with the Iron Patriot, thus rendering it an effective if rather unconventional prison.

A press release reported on by EW.com on October 18, 2010 states: Disney, Paramount Pictures, and Marvel Studios have announced via press release that Iron Man 3 will be released in on May 3, 2013. This suggests that Iron Man 3 was always intended to be a late spring tent-pole picture in keeping with the previous releases. We can only speculate the reason ...

Yes - if you wait right until the very end of the credits, there's a sequence involving Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. It's just a little joke though and not part of the main plot. Otherwise, no other Avengers appear.

Actually, the second time Pepper kicks a missile, possibly the "ex-wife", to Killians face. Adding that to the damage he took when the armor self-destructed, suposedly overloads his healing factor.

This formula was the problem that Dr. Hansen needed to solve to fix the flaws with the Extremis virus. As you saw in the movie, many people who are subjected to the virus reject it and die violently. Dr. Hansen's attempts to solve it always failed, but she knew Tony Stark was smart enough to do it. So the whole plot of the movie was her and Killian ...

Pulling from the The Comic Board Forum (and from IM3), we know that: December 31, 1999, Tony Stark learns about Extremis from Maya Hansen. October, 2006, Aldrich Killian injects himself with Extremis. February, 2008, Killian goes on to find new recruits (including Ellen Brandt, Chad Davis, Eric Savin, and Jack Taggert) to test Extremis on. Some of the ...

The idea is that Iron Man 3 closes a major chapter, or set of chapters, of Tony Starks life. This chapter started when he was first taken hostage and the shrapnel was embedded in his body. One of the themes of this movie is dependence. Tony has been dependent on the suit, on the reactor in his chest, for a long time. After all of the events in IM1, 2, ...

We were previously shown that those altered by Extremis aren't immortal. Tony killed one on the airplane by blasting out his heart. I think the assumption in that situation is that without a heart to feed blood to the rest of your body you'll die. When Killian was blown up the first time, he took a lot of damage, but it seems that his body mostly stayed ...

All parts of Iron-man's suit can act like an independent robot. So its possible for Jarvis to control one body part (glove) to act differently than the other Iron-Man parts. And it is never mentioned that the new Iron-Man suit can only be summoned to/by Tony. If you remember, he sent the suit to Pepper to protect her. So it seems possible to me.

The key part is "wreckage of his house". All the suits were in the vault, which were underneath his house. After Mandarin's attack, the vault was buried in rubble. After the attack, the rubble from the attack was cleaned up. By the end of the film, that had progressed far enough that the vault's doors were accessible again (we get a glimpse of this once ...

There certainly is a relation between the two. While one might consider the mention of the Ten Rings in Iron Man 1 as an easter egg for the fans, it seems that the filmmakers have always conceded that the Ten Rings and the real Mandarin exist in this onscreen universe. SPOILERS BELOW Indeed, in the new short film that can be found on the Thor 2 DVD, we ...

They were vials of the Extremis drug. The guy injected himself, couldn't "regulate" the effect, and then exploded, being turned into a bomb.

Extremis is a super-soldier solution. It's a bio-electronics package, fitted into a few billion graphite nanotubes and suspended in a carrier fluid. A magic bullet, like the original super-soldier serum—all fitted into a single injection. It hacks the body's repair center—the part of the brain that keeps a complete blue print of the human body. ...

Samuel L. Jackson said none of the Avengers are gonna be in Iron Man 3. Here is a source: http://www.whogottherole.com/movie-news/nick-fury-wont-be-needed-in-iron-man-3-24324

I just returned from the showing. There are no Avengers in the film, but hang around until after the credits if you really want to see another member of the team...

Since the OP said that he is open to answers outside the movie universe here goes this: The Mandarin is portrayed as a genius scientist and a superhumanly skilled martial artist. However, his primary sources of power are ten power rings that he adapted from the alien technology of a crashed space ship. Each ring has a different power and is worn on ...

The answer is no, there is no new avengers in Iron-man 3. Rumors about Stephanie Szostak playing Janet van Dyne (Wasp) proved wrong. She is playing Ellen Brandt not completely like her comics part and she is given with Extremis virus. Which made her powerful villain not avenger. If Ellen Brandt survive somehow(shown killed) then she can be used in marvel ...

To answer simply, no, the kid is not based on any existing Marvel characters before. However, I believe the character was added by Disney to make the film more kid-friendly, to have a character that children can identify with. If I was not mistaken, at the time of the release, the character was poorly received, as with Mandarin's different take (an image, ...

The suits were under the command to engage and eliminate all Extremists. The suits considered Pepper too as an Extremist as she had been injected with the virus. Therefore, the suits would try to destroy her rather than save her. And, IMO issuing a new command to save Pepper Potts would had taken time and moreover be seen as an ambiguous instruction by the ...

Looking at the scene, it looks like the fire breath takes quite a bit of effort to do and being constantly in battle with the Iron Man obviously was draining to Aldrich. Additionally he then got blown up in the suit weakening him even more!

It is not a mystery anymore. In Iron Man 2, we have seen the Russian physicist made such Iron Man suits which can't be operated from inside. remember how agent Rhodes got confined in that suit and he could not leave it. The villain in this movie who held the president captive is a scientist himself. As we saw, at the end of Iron Man 2, the suit was retained ...

Basically the answer is that the newer suits are not powered by the Arc reactor in Tony's chest, but have their own power supply, so that they can fly and fight even if Tony is not in them. The user Thaddeus has written an excellent and extensive answer on this over at scifi.stackexchange: None of the new armors being developed used the internal power ...

There is a scene in Iron Man 3 when Colonel Rhodes is holding up a bunch of guys in a building somewhere when Tony calls him and asks "Your re-design, your big re-brand, that was AIM, right?" and Colonel Rhodes replies "Yeah". So if AIM did the redesign and updated the software for the suit, then chances are Killian put in a override in the suits software ...
