New Iron Man 3 Set Photos Hint At A Great Evil
Iron Man 3 has not been in production for a long time, but already photos that have been leaked from the set have given us an eye into just what writer/director Shane Black has in store for us. In late May a photographer snapped a photo of Iron Patriot on set (click here to see who is wearing the armor), and now it's been revealed that another one of the evil corporations from the comics has found its way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
iO9 holds the new images, which show that Advanced Idea Mechanics, also known as AIM. Will play a role in the movie. While this would be meaningless to anyone not familiar with the comics, AIM is best known as the company that experimented on one of its technicians, George Tarleton, and turned him into MODOK (which stands for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing). Below you will find the set photos as well as an image of MODOK.
Those who keep up with news about the Marvel movies may note that this isn't the first time that MODOK has been brought up in connection with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the release of Captain America: The First Avenger last summer, the writers said in an interview that they would love to make the floating giant head you see above be the villain in Captain America 2 (and have Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage play him). It's highly unlikely that MODOK will be playing a role in either Iron Man 3 or Captain America 2, but it will be interesting to figure out why Shane Black is using AIM. Perhaps that will be the company that created the Extremis nanovirus? Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale. The sequel will arrive in theaters on May 3, 2013 and you can read more about it in our Blend Film Database.
