Default Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 6

This is Iron Man's concrete link to Thanos, the GotG and the whole Cosmic Marvel line. It's reaching back 40 years, but maybe the fact that Thanos, Drax et. al had their comics debut in Iron Man explains the space armor and Tony joining the Guardians in the comic. And maybe there really is something to all of the speculation that the events in the comics foreshadow Iron Man going into space in the film universe.

Man, if this is part of Feige's plan it's brilliant and truly inspired.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
