Looks like filming of Iron Man 3 has given away another little surprise. Photos have surfaced showing that A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) will appear in some fashion in Iron Man 3, introduction the terrorist organization to the cinematic Marvel Universe.
Possible spoilers ahead, be warned:
For those that don’t know, in the comics A.I.M. is an organization of scientist dedicated to the acquisition of power and technology in aims of overthrowing government. A.I.M. is also known to have created M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) and wearing yellow “bee keeper” suits.
The site On Location Vacation has also released some more photos from the filming, along with the following description of what was filmed:
One of our readers, A. K. Trujillo, told us, “The crowd was told to be quiet when shots were filmed outside, or else they would heighten security and ban spectators from watching. [There were] no big action scenes. All actors were in business suits or security uniforms. The director was heard yelling, “Action”, “Turn, Turn, Turn, Turn” and “Cut”.” Though the photos were taken from a distance, you can see a few extras in uniform and a decorated tree that indicates the scene is set during the holidays.
Spotted on the set today, via Tumblr’s HannibalDelarge, we have the following images that seem to confirm A.I.M. involvement:
Of course, my mind goes to the same place I’m assuming a lot of your minds are going: Namely that A.I.M. is perhaps best known as the guys behind one of the greatest all-purpose comic book villains ever… M.O.D.O.K.
Speaking of him, Peter Dinklage For M.O.D.O.K.!
