I had to delay publishing this “5 WTF Moments In Iron Man 3” as it mainly contains spoilers from the recently released Iron Man 3 which has Robert Downey Jr. returning for the 4th time as Tony Stark/Iron Man (Marvels Avengers included).
These 5 major WTF moments listed below have been selected from a number of scenes and events in the movie which left me stunned or really really impressed. Seeing as its now almost a month since the movie was released the spoilers might not affect a lot of people as i’m sure those who really really want to watch the movie would have done so by now.
In the new movie which has raked in huge bucks since it was first released and is still prompting discussions in some circles, -
Tony Stark/Iron Man has to go against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man? (c) Disney
1) Happy in Action
Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), who is now Tony Stark’s bodyguard, gets it in his head that he is some kind of super spy/bad guy which prompts him to go after and try to take down someone that could obviously kick his ass from Earth to Mars and back.
2) Tony Stark Gets Visitors
Not long after giving out his house address on national TV, Tony Stark gets visitors and
this visitors are not looking to use the front door have rather decided to “knock” from afar. Tony who had been waiting to see what the repercussions of giving out his address would be was not exactly ready for the antics of this guests of his.
3) Fire Breathing
dra Bad Guys
With the revelation that The Mandarin would be the villain in this movie, expectations were high as to what his henchmen would look like (i.e if they would be characters from the comics) and what powers/abilities they would have however i never expected to see them breath fire and i doubt if anyone else expected that until we got to see it on screen and the go Whoa!
4) Tony Stark Calls In Reinforcements
While under siege and without either the Iron Man or War Machine suits, Tony Stark and Rhodes have to play hide and seek with the roof jumping-vicious henchmen Tony stark decides to reveal what he does in his spare time by calling in reinforcements which turned out to be different types of Iron Man suits capable of going into battle without someone putting them on.
5) The Mandarin turned out to be a dummy after all
Having read tons of comics and watched too many Iron Man cartoons, the News that The Mandarin would be the villain of Iron Man 3 was something that made many people follow the production and rush to go see the movie when it opened as we wanted to see Iron Man really get his ass kicked. While Sir Ben Kingsley did a good job playing The Mandarin, i have to agree i was shocked to find out later on that he was just a timid character who was just a Wizard of Oz.
