Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Just because one weird thing happens does not mean every other subsequent odd thing has the same legitimacy. The Arc/Armour are both what make him Iron Man and are necessary for the character.

Extremis is entirely optional and just to me and several others, seems to extreme a thing to have in a series that as far as Iron Man goes, wants to have a grounded sense of realism somewhere in the mix to keep things lower key than say Thor.

Having some of the endo-portion of the suit go wrong, or deliberately having some connections to the suit surgically added in a believable manner maybe, but using Mariners colourful way of saying it, him just shitting the armour on command in some fashion, no.

Keep in mind that's it's almost certain that Extremis isn't going to go the internal undersheath route in the films, as it's never really an issue, unlike in the comics where it was for many years.

There was one suggestion that the film may introduce a neuro-wifi system and have Tony will the armor to put itself on, which I assume would satisfy both groups of fans.

A little ahead of it's time perhaps but such technology isn't hard to believe at all for the near future.

As for the new suit...badass...

Well, bones are hollow and porous for a reason, so there is room for marrow. The mass of the nanites has to be minimal to allow for continued biological functioning. If the resulting underwear is a micron thin and functions just as an extension of the nervous system it would be barely believable. I wouldn't consider it the "near" future, though.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Just read the IM3 liveblog, and they described some footage. I don't know about reposting abut it here, since people were getting kicked out of the panel for recording it.

* It is Offical Sir Ben Kingsley is THE MANDARIN!

* John Favreau is giving tips and advice.

*While discussion Ben Kingsley's Mandarin "Shane says, "This guy is...The Mandarin".

* Rebecca Hall is Maya Hanson.

*Guy Pierce officially announced. Nothing about who he is.

*"Happy Hogan is so off the chain, says RDJ. It's like Swingers at 40."

*"Jon says now he gets to have fun. He gets to enjoy things without having the directorial responsibilities. He's also Executive Producer on the film. He's a proud grandfather who gets to play with the baby without changing the diapers."

*RDJ thinks Demon in a Bottle is a good concept, but doesn't have enough plot of for a movie.

*More footage.

Dude, your brain wills your food to be digested.
Yes, and my digestive system is designed to accommodate the task. My bones aren't designed to excrete metal.

They would be if you were subjected to a redesign of your body by the Extremis "virus"

Maybe. Still feels way too far-fetched to show up in a movie.

I can't say I find it more far fetched than anything that happened in the Avengers, for example.

That was great. Not that is was a great watch so much that it was great for the people involved with that event. Good memory to take home with your child.

That was nice. Too bad about the typical "prick with a camera" towards the end there.

RDJ is a pretty cool guy. I'lm pretty sure he didn't have to stay to talk with the kids or have his picture taken with them, but he did it anyway!

I always love it when stars do stuff like this. It shows that they actually care about there fans, and are willing to take the time to do something for them.
