In a recent episode of the BombadRadio podcast, Lawden claimed to have just returned from a Marvel/Disney trade fair in Milan, Italy, where Marvel had shown an extended look at both Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World. Beyond completed scenes of Shane Black’s “darker” Iron Man story, the animated storyboards for some of the film’s more special effects-laden sequences were also shown.

Lawden may not sound or look familiar to audiences, but he’s the actor currently embodying the Iron Man armor during live promotions as part of Marvel and Disney’s extended publicity. Wearing Tony Stark’s armor while glad-handing and performing publicly isn’t the only perk of the job, it seems.

While fans are still waiting to get their first look at the Iron Man 3 teaser this week, according to Lawden, that won’t hold a candle to the finished product:

“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.”

Lawden went on to confirm the biological changes Tony Stark will be undergoing; changes that might feasibly allow him to operate forty mechanized suits at one time. We’ve known for quite a while that Warren Ellis’ Extremis story arc would be pulled upon for Iron Man 3, and it seems Stark’s new-found powers will be put to the test.

In regards to how accurate this report actually IS: Well, as stated the 40+ suits in the finale has been rumored before – and in fact, Stark’s new armor was also rumored to be designated as the Mark 47, indicating that a LOT of armor gets developed between the Mark 7 in The Avengers and the ending of Iron Man 3. Second, recent Iron Man 3 set photos have already depicted the mid-air rescue scene that Lawden describes, so it seems plenty credible.

  1. Snitches. Ought to be arrested. Anyway, like The Avenger said earlier, I believe it’s all part of the plan.



  4. I wanted To see Thanos in all the phase 2 movies. We saw him at the end of the Avengers, so he is clearly being set up as the next big villain. I had hoped to watch him assemble his forces in the back of each of the Phase 2 films, so that there’d be a lot of tension built up before his final confrontation with the Avengers in Avengers 2.

  5. I love Loki and I think the thing with him and Thor reuniting will be great and something that people would definetely want to see- will Loki be redeemed or continue his mischievous ways? I think the plot is great and this sounds like an amazing movie.

  6. Can’t wait to see Loki! :DDDDD

  7. I hope they have lots of Darcy in Thor 2, she’s such a great character and there’s so much they could do with that! Also, Kat Dennings… enough said.

  8. Loki will probably be taken at the end by thanos and having venom dropped in his eyes by a snake. And or that gautlet has to be part of the story of thor 2 as well, or atleast hinted as a bargain to save Jane and Loki. IM3 and GOTG sound perfect, and they need iron man to make the film better. Ironman and GOTG will return to earth in avengers, while thor warns shield of thanos. Mandarian may also be linked to the gautlet with his rings, or one, being a missing part thanos needs. who knows but i have to be close to this. Cap 2 is the only movie i cant see fitting in, it must have a major villain from one of the others; and i hope the propaganda in cap2 means we knew about aliens and other worlds. AIM has to be caps new enemy

  9. I’m really excited to see Loki again. cant wait to see the movie! Loki! LOKI! they should have a movie about him, right?

  10. Hey, does anyone know whether Jane is going to die in Thor 2? If she does, I don’t see any reason why Thor should continue to protect Earth…
