Why don't they do a version of The Crossing?

The time crossing epic of the 90's started by Kang that displaced the Avengers into alternate timelines while he ruled?

That would be a bit much to boilerplate down just for an Iron Man movie I'd think.

What about "Demon"? They only hinted at Tony's potential for alcoholism in the first two films. What if he went full-bore? Maybe it won't make for a great central plot, but we know RDJ can chew that sort of thing up.

Ha, yeah, I think IM2 went about as far as they will go toward Tony having a drinking problem. Can't say I really blame them.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

The first spy photo from the set of Iron Man 3? Or is it just RDJ just out and about in Wilmington, NC between takes?



Can't make out an arc reactor under his shirt, unless that's all done in Post.

I doubt it's done in post. A good rule of thumb would be to ask if you can do something practically cheaper than you can with CGI in post. It'd be a lot easier and cheaper to simply put something under his shirt that glows than it would be to every single frame of film he's on and add in a glowing reactor that looks to be under his chest.

I've seen on-set photos before with what looks like the ARC under his shirt randomly, so it probably is a simple LED thing taped to his chest for scenes like that.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Yet another villain added and yet another one who wears a powered armoured suit. Firepower/ Jack Taggart, who is to be played by Ashley Hamilton, son of George and a friend of RDJ in real life. Isn't the movie getting a bit cluttered with these guys?

In other news, Favreau, while not directing, looks likely to return as Happy Hogan.

Firepower?

Does that mean they'll do a variant of the Armor Wars storyline? Hard to pull off now that the world knows Tony is Iron Man.

So is Iron Man's rogues gallery on filled with people in powered suits? I mean.... Certainly there's someone else we can see.

The link I posted above at AICN says that the movie is borrowing from the Extremis storyline.

a lot of them have either powered armour suits (Crimson Dynamo, Titanium Man, Firepower, Sunturion, Ghost, Iron Monger) or used technology gimmicks (Whiplash, Melter, Stilt-Man, Blizzard), only a few, like Madam Masque didn't.

if your hero's a guy in a power suit, you need people to be a credible threat to him, so power suits proliferate.

You kinda answer your own question. A variant.

The movie is only pulling parts in from Extremis, no reason it can't pull some from Armor Wars.
