They let *Iron Patriot* aboard AF1 because he's a creation of the US military. *He's* in charge of security, not Tony Stark. (I'm still not entirely clear on what Tony's actual role is in the AF1 scene; on the one hand, he's rescuing all those people plummeting to their deaths, but on the other, he's seen actually blowing the hole in the fuselage in the first place. He obviously loses control of the Extremis armor at least briefly during this scene; but I'm not exactly sure whether he begins the scene *on board* the plane, or outside it.)

As for the Extremis soldiers: just guessing at this point, but I'd assume that AIM/Mandarin are keeping them secret. I don't think anybody outside of the upper echelons of AIM and Ten Rings know a thing about Extremis-ized soldiers. They're to be used only by Killian and Mandy.

I can't stop thinking of this commercial every time I see Mandi now

And Frank seems like the kind of guy that a kind of guy like Mandarin could idolize. Or satirize. Or both.

Also, apropos of nothing: there's oil derricks on those bottom circles.



Thanks for the higher resolution.
Yeah, up close, it definitely looks like a (flat-chested?) girl trying to disguise herself as Kurt Cobain. Well, not Kurt literally; but some street bum.

My guess is that it's Szostak or Hall, in the full employ of AIM/Ten Rings, and they're getting ready to blow up Grauman's Chinese Theater.

*EDIT: Notice the big honking ring on his/her finger. Dead giveaway.

When I said tony stark and national security I was referring to Iron man 2 where they wanted Iron Man 2 "on watch" and rhodes had to get him sober and back on duty instead of partying

Ok, my bad.
Still, it's a bit different being a "private contractor" or "Tier 1 operative" (or whatever euphemism the Pentagon uses these days for mercenaries) and actual active-duty military.

This could be from very early on in the film if it echos the Extremis comic, where they apply the Extremis serum to Mallen and think it killed him, but it worked and he becomes a super soldier.

Just a thought.

I realize as fans we feel like it is our job to try to figure out every detail, but for me the reason why this section of the trailer works so well is because it could be just about anyone, so yeah it's good it's remaining a secret. I mean imagine......

The section just before it shows the guy with a torn pant leg and no sock or shoe on his foot with the Mandarin voice over of "You don't know who I am" shortly after followed by the shadowy figure section and the voice over of "You'll never see me coming". How different would these sections feel with those voice overs if we knew exactly who they are? I think what is important here is that the video (using the voice over and these unrecognizable characters) is establishing Tony Stark / Iron Man needs to be afraid because he doesn't even know what he is fighting against. It would be much less powerful if they were to say "You'll never see me coming" while showing exactly who it is he is up against.

At least my opinion, and it also builds excitement to want to see who it ends up being when I go see it in the theater.

Private contractors are definitely not Tier 1 operatives since that designation is used for active-duty military personnel in special mission SpecOps units.

^ Good catch.

So Stephanie Szostak is an Extremis soldier. I'm guessing she really is Ellen Bradt.

^ I doubt.

Everything indicates she's a pretty unimportant character in the grand scheme of things. Right now, I'm banking my money on Ellen Brandt. It fits.

Brandt would be a pretty significant character would she not? Adds the whole SWORD angle including Carol Danvers & Captain Mar-vell eventually. Same goes for if she turns out to be Janet or even Cabe could be a role player somehow.

Ellen Brandt, not Abigail Brandt.

Ellen Brandt is an A.I.M employee. I believe she appeared a few times in "Man-Thing".
