Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 7
Actually, rethinking the Batmask -- dammit, IRON mask -- scene again. IIRC, there *is* one trailer that shows her picking the mask up, and it's definitely at the mansion....but the mansion is still intact.
So. There's actually TWO "attacks" at the mansion. Early on, you get the scene where all Tony's six or seven main go-to armors blow up by themselves....but that's not the helicopter assault. It's Mandarin sabotaging Tony's workshop, maybe --- or maybe it's Tony himself who destroys them, to replace them with his "new 'n' improved" armor. Pepper picks up the cracked mask afterward, stares bemusedly at it, figures Tony's gone a little loopy. Then, cue the "Ride of the Valkyries" music, and in comes Mandarin's choppers for the worst (or best) possible timing.
