It’s typically a sign that you’re on to a pretty big scoop when a studio asks you to remove a story. That’s what happened to Brazilian entertainment site Omelete, which reported comments made by Simon Philips, president of Marvel Entertainment International and Consumer Products, about Iron Man 3 during a presentation in São Paulo.
There are some potential spoilers lying ahead about Iron Man 3, so if you want to go into the sequel fresh, we’d recommend you stop reading now.
According to Omelete (via Comic Book Movie), Tony Stark will have an underground Hall of Armors with somewhere around 16 new suits, including some classics that fans will recognize from the comics. It’s also reported that Pepper Potts will get to don her own suit and get in on some of the fights as well.
The report adds that the scene in the Iron Man 3 trailer where Tony Stark is lying on a hospital bed is actually when he’s injected with the Extremis virus. Because of that injection, Tony will be able to “create new armors from leftover pieces of older ones,” CBM writes. Like we said, these are some pretty big spoilers.
Marvel forcing Omelete to remove the article seems to confirm it’s truth, though for now we’ll still put this in the “rumor” category. Opening May 3, 2013, Iron Man 3 stars returning cast members Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau, joined by Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton.
