“I don’t know, and that is really the honest answer. I know I’ve been known for obfuscation in other quarters, but I have no idea. I haven’t spoken to Joss (Whedon). He’s definitely doing it.

But I’d love to be part of it again.” Actor Tom Hiddleston expressed.

Could Iron Man Wander into Space with The Guardians of the Galaxy?

Apparently there’s a rumor going on that Marvel wants Robert Downey Jr. to reprise his role as Iron Man in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This interesting news came first from comicbook.com, but that’s it, and it’s still a rumor without confirmation.

Another hint is that during the New York Comic Con Marvel revealed the cover of the new Guardians of the Galaxy graphic novel, and Iron Man was seen as part of the group. Needless to say that many people started to especulate that the flamboyant billionaire Tony Stark (RDJ) could be in the deep space film. However Robert Downey Jr. still has to sign a new contract with Marvel, Iron Man 3 is his last film under contract.

Here is a tease of Iron Man meeting with the Guardians… you be the judge.

This is what the revealing article of comicbook.com had to say:

While we’re unsure if this connects, a twitter account with the handle Roger Wardell has been known to tweet some Marvel Studios new before it has been actually announced. Before the New York Comic Con revelation of Iron Man appearing in the new Guardians of the Galaxy comic book, Wardell tweeted, “Inside News: Remember that the Guardians of the Galaxy banner was only concept art, so that may not be the final roster of the team.”

“In other tweets, Wardell has suggested that Iron Man 3 underwent a last minute rewrite particularly in the film’s third act and that Iron Man 3 will feature a mid credits scene and a post credits scene. Our sources aren’t familiar with a rewrite or how many in credits scenes there are in Iron Man 3, but if Wardell is correct, then here’s a little bit of speculation.

Whose Who in Iron Man 3?

Marvel recently released a new shot of Iron Man 3‘s main villain The Mandarin, portrayed by Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley. The third installment of the Iron Man franchise is being directed by Shane Black, best known for his work in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Robert Downey Jr.  will reprise his role of billionaire industrialist-turned-Earth’s Mightiest Hero Tony Stark, as well as Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Don Cheadle (James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes) and Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan) who will be returning for this latest adventure.

The cast includes new additions like Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian, a Geneticist at Futurepham and creator of the Extremis nanotechnology, who apparently used the resources of Mandarin  to create a terrorist army.

James Badge Dale will portray Eric Savin, which leads us to the possibility of seeing cyborg-action in Iron Man 3. In the Marvel comics, Savin was turned into the ravenous cyborg Coldblood-7 after stepping into a land mine.

Rebeca Hall has stepped into the lead role of Dr. Maya Hansen in Iron Man 3, Dr. Hansen helps develop the Extremis nanotechnology with Dr. Killian (Pearce), the scientist is also a former flame of Tony Stark’s past. Previously Jessica Chastain was going to portray Dr Hansen, but she left the film.

First Official Look of Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin in Iron Man 3

In the third installment of Iron Man, comic book  fans will have their expectations fulfilled as they meet the Mandarin.

Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher,” The Mandarin snarled in a teaser from the movie previewed last July at Comic-Con. “Lesson #1: Heroes – there is no such thing.”

After the Mandarin’s (Portrayed by Ben Kingsley) speech, several black helicopters appear shooting missiles into the seaside home that is Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man headquarters. As the structure detonates and collapses into the sea, all of his armor and equipment sinks with it.

The Mandarin knows the world will need more than one lesson. And who better than him to show them a lesson or two.
