Iron Man 3 plot details and rumours

Needless to say there will be spoilers ahead.

Robert Downey Jr recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Iron Man 3. He mentioned details of a particular scene and how Don Cheadle’s character Rhodey/War Machine’s fits into things.

One sequence – the top-secret name is the Boot/Glove Sequence, I can tell you that, just between you and me – it’s where Tony only has one gauntlet and one boot and he has to escape multiple captors. It’s really fun, dude. We’re taking everything from his first gauntlet test in the first movie up through the most extreme stuff we thought up for Iron Man 2 and The Avengers and pulling on all of it and making this one big, extended challenge of physics.

Rhodey is much more in the dead center of things. He’s much more dynamic. We’ve made this decision that while Tony is a technical guy, he’s not really a trained guy. There’s a lot of fun to be had with Don because he’s really good with hardware and he’s a martial artist, so it’s been really fun exploiting this possibility of Tony having moments like the one in Avengers, like the one with Cap where he decides, “Oh screw it, he probably knows what he’s doing.” So there’s a lot of that and a lot more fun and a lot more depth to Rhodey this time around.

He also spoke about The Avengers and whether or not they would be seen in the Shane Black directed sequel.

Again, possible spoilers ahead.

“The whole Avengers thing [with $1.5 billion in global box office] was such a relief and such a confirmation of [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige’s vision for this all along. As Kevin has put it, the next step after that is to bring in someone like Shane Black and – without pretending that the Avengers don’t exist – find a way to go back to a kind of re-investigation of Tony’s world, which he thought would be, one, fun for the audience and, two, would rock in a different way than The Avengers. But we can’t help it — everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of his could be useful. So they’re in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn’t expect to see them on the ground in this one.

The wording of that last part is a little strange and does make me think he could well be referencing the Guardians of the Galaxy. Does this mean there will be some mention or sight of them in the, now traditional, post credits scene?

Latino Review seem to think so as they have posted the following:

“According to sources, at the end of Iron Man 3, Tony actually does go up into space to hook up with the Guardians of The Galaxy where I also hear he appears at the end of that movie as well.”

Funko’s Pop! Vinyl figure below may also confirm this.

Tie that into the fact that Iron Man is also featuring in the new Guardians of the Galaxy comic and we have ourselves a definite possibility.

Iron Man 3 is out on 3rd May 2013.
