What Marvel Movie Will Iron Man 3 Set Up?

| Filed under: Film Flickers

Iron Man hero cameo

After the success of The Avengers, Marvel and Disney would be crazy NOT to use every movie they make to set up another one.

Much like what Thor did for Captain America or what Iron Man 2 did for The Avengers, sources are suggesting that Iron Man 3 will have a NEW hero cameo to set up another franchise.

Which Marvel hero, you ask?

To answer that question, we must first discuss the villain. Ben Kingsley is reportedly playing Marvel universe supervillain Mandarin, who employs Chinese scientist Chen Lu to help carry out his plot against Iron Man. After exposing himself to radiation, Lu becomes supervillain Radioactive Man.

Since director Shane Black and Marvel boss Kevin Feige have said that the movie won't serve as a transition for the next Avengers movie, the next logical choice would be Edgar Wright's Ant-Man!

The hero is already headed to the big screen and he frequently clashes with Radioactive Man, so it would make perfect sense to introduce him in Iron Man 3.

Rumor has it that the Shaun of the Dead director is even shooting footage to "test out the potential look and tone" of the movie. Or as others speculate, a post-credit sequence to introduce the character by the end of Tony Stark's third solo outing.

Fans can look forward to finding out more deets about the latest Marvel news at the upcoming Comic-Con event in San Diego.

So cool! Nerding out over here REAL hard!!!

    How did Thor set up Captain America?
    IM2 set up Thor (at the end) and then all 3 movies set up The Avengers. But Thor and Captain America had no common thread apart from their Avengers set up.

    Maybe a set up for the next Wolverine, considering he wasn't even a part of The Avengers movie- or a lead in to Avengers 2 (considering the end of that movie, we all know a next one is coming)

    I presume that the fact that the Tesseract is first seen in Thor and then sent to Earth before it pops up in Captain America could be viewed as a set up. However Cap was also set up a little in both Iron Mans and the Incredible Hulk.

    There is no way that Wolverine will ever join the Avengers due to rights…..Fox has the rights of X-Men and all mentions of mutants and they are not gona let Marvel get it back.

    Actually this is kinda already known. Marvel Movies are going to make a movie about Guardians of the Universe, so one of the members might appear.
    Some rumors also say that they are thinking of making a movie about Black Panther, in order to reach to the black community.
    Honestly, I would rather have them be bold and actually do a movie about a female superhero. Ms. Marvel, for instance, would be perfect, since she is also a part of the Avengers and seriously needs a re-vamp after the rape storyline mistake they did, years ago.
    That, or Spider-woman.

    I think most, if not all Marvel films from now will be leading upto Avengers 2. Each post credit scene will probably show something new about Thanos. Just my 2 cents.
