It's been a big day of Iron Man 3 news, and we have some more great info to share with you! This bit of information definitely contains some spoilers, but it's pretty awesome stuff. I don't mean to tempt you, but it's something you might want to know.
The details come from the latest issue of Empire Magazine who got to see 15 minutes of footage from the film. Spoilers coming now...
One of the scenes incuded Tony Stark crash landing and getting help from a ten year old boy. It's also confirmed that Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) works for The Mandarin, and also uses the 'Extremis' technology to gain superhuman powers. Iron Man won't be fighting a giant Robot in this movie, he'll be fighting people with superhuman powers due to the nano technology! This seriously sounds really cool! Here are the details...
The scene ends with Stark, bloodied and dazed, flying away not entirely in control of his malfunctioning prototype. He lands hundreds of miles away in a snowy field, where, out of power, he can't get in touch with Pepper. Or Rhodey. Or The Avengers, neatly sidestepping that question.
Breaking into a deserted-looking garage, the tone then zigzags again as Tony is startled by a ten year-old kid, Harley (Ty Simpkins) sparking what [Drew] Pearce calls the film's "sci-fi Capra" phase. "We loved the idea of doing something classically Spielbergian - a kid finds a superhero in a shed. Their relationship is not something you would traditionally see in Spielberg, though; it's bawdier, more fractious."
Extremis is a scientific program invented by Hansen and abused by the Mandarin and his right-hand man, Guy Pearce's slimy Aldrich Killian. It rewrites the operating system of the body, upgrading strength, speed and durability to the very zenith of human possibility.
"We're calling it a biological reality and there's a science behind it that allows people to glow and rip apart Iron Man suits," says Feige. "Frankly, Shane was not interested, and we were not interested, in having another armoured character and another armoured character fight. We've done that twice before."
How freakin' awesome does that sound?! I can't wait to see what that actually looks like!
The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Gweneth Paltrow, Sir Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau. It will hit 3D and 2D theaters on May 3rd, 2013, and it's going to amazing!
