Rumors of IRON MAN 3 cameos and a possible ending spoiler

Recent information may have revealed the Shane Black-directed film’s connection to another upcoming Marvel movie. Beware, POSSIBLE SPOILERS for Iron Man 3 lurk below. You have been warned.

Robert Downey Jr. on a possible cameo from one or more of the Avengers in Iron Man 3:

“But we can’t help it — everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of [Tony’s] could be useful. So they’re in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn’t expect to see them on the ground in this one.”

Spurred by the release of an Iron Man 3 toy that boasts Tony’s “Deep Space Suit” armor, the folks over at Latino Review posted the following scoop:

“According to sources, at the end of Iron Man 3, Tony actually does go up into space to hook up with the Guardians of The Galaxy where I also hear he appears at the end of that movie as well.”

No word on if this would be in the film’s post-credits sequence or if it would be the end of the movie, but the post-credits sequences of the Phase One films all tied into how the group would come together to form The Avengers, so it makes sense that the Phase Two tags would involve getting the heroes into outer space since the likely villain in The Avengers 2 is Thanos.

The wrinkle in this plan is the fact that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t cast yet, so it may be hard to film a Guardians scene with RDJ’s Tony Stark. That said, Joss Whedon filmed a scene for The Avengers just a few weeks before that film hit theaters, so the precedence is there for a last-minute shoot. It’s also a great way to introduce the world to the Guardians of the Galaxy. We’ll know for sure when Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3rd.
