Huge Potential Spoilers For Iron Man 3 And Thor


Continuing on with today’s Iron Man theme, some huge spoilers have made their way to the web. English stuntman and actor, as well as Marvel employee, Andrew Lawden spoke out on plot twists and spoilers for both Phase 2 films. His information is reportedly first-hand and/or from people he works with on the set of Thor: The Dark World. As always take this with a grain of salt, but be warned these are probably more credible than most. Screenrant had the full rundown of Lawden’s spoil-fest.

Lawden talked with BombadRadio and told them about the Milan, Italy trade fair where Marvel showed extended looks at Iron Man and Thor. Lawden tours with Disney and dons the Iron Man suit during live promotions. He spilled the beans on Iron Man 3:

Well, there’s going to be a big fight sequence with The Mandarin, who’s the main villain, which will involve none other than forty different iron man suits. There’s an amazing rescue where The Mandarin basically wants to bring down the American government and kill the President, and he launches an attack on Air Force One. All of them – the President and his men and staff – get sucked out of the plane, and Iron Man rescues them by forming this amazing human chain in the sky.

There’s some pretty spectacular stuff that goes on. There’s an amazing sequence where he has this rooftop house that he builds to store all his Iron Man suits, and it gets attacked by The Mandarin and these gunships […] I was shocked to discover there are like forty Iron Man suits written into this feature in various ways…so that’s going to be pretty impressive. But apparently he needs this Iron Man army to go up against The Mandarin’s forces.

We have heard variations of this before, so it does sound possible. We know the armor debuted at Comic Con is the Mark 47. We’ve also seen the stunts being filmed where Iron Man hauls a “human chain” of people to safety over the water earlier this summer.

Stuntmen spoiled the fact that Dark Elves would be in Thor: The Dark World, and it looks like they’ve spilled some more. Lawden talked about the location filming we’ve seen pics of and talked about the context of the filming. Bear in mind the plot synopsis for the new Thor flick was revealed a few weeks ago, and it promised that Thor would have to make the ultimate sacrifice to safe us all.

Thor becomes reunited with Jane who becomes possessed by a Dark Spirit, which is connected with the Dark Elves; a race the Asgardians have fallen out with many years beforehand […] The Dark Elves attack Asgard, and they take a huge hit. So Thor has to rebuild Asgard by putting together an army to go and take the battle to the Dark Elves and defeat them. But the only way he can do this is – he needs to cross over to the Dark World, and the only person who has access to the dark side of Asgard is his old brother Loki, who at the beginning of the film is locked up in prison.

So what happens is Thor basically has to negotiate this truce with Loki, and he goes on this great trek with Jane, all three of them. They go to this far side of Asgard, which is being shot in Iceland, where they train and assemble an army to go and attack the Dark Elves’ world.

So far most of these things we have kind of known or guessed at, this next bit is the biggest spoiler of all for Thor. Read this one at your own risk:

But the exclusive twist…is that one of the things that happens during the Asgardian attack is that Thor’s mother gets killed. So it becomes like a vengeance thing. And they were keeping very tight-lipped about what actually happens with Loki, you don’t know whether he redeems himself or he’s still the bad egg.

So, I’d imagine Lawden is going to be in some pretty big trouble regardless of the validity of the rumors. That’s a lot of information to process for Iron Man and Thor. What do you think? Sound legit to you?
