Earlier today the site ScreenRant posted some very interesting rumors for both IRON MAN 3 and THOR: The Dark World, which include spoilers, plot points, and possible character deaths.
**Possible spoilers below, read on at your own discretion.**
Recently stuntman Andrew Lawden was talking with Bombad Radio, and during the conversation let out some very interesting bits for both IRON MAN 3 and THOR: The Dark World
In regards to THOR: THE DARK WORLD :
“Thor becomes reunited with Jane who becomes possessed by a Dark Spirit, which is connected with the Dark Elves; a race the Asgardians have fallen out with many years beforehand […] The Dark Elves attack Asgard, and they take a huge hit. So Thor has to rebuild Asgard by putting together an army to go and take the battle to the Dark Elves and defeat them. But the only way he can do this is – he needs to cross over to the Dark World, and the only person who has access to the dark side of Asgard is his old brother Loki, who at the beginning of the film is locked up in prison.
So what happens is Thor basically has to negotiate this truce with Loki, and he goes on this great trek with Jane, all three of them. They go to this far side of Asgard, which is being shot in Iceland, where they train and assemble an army to go and attack the Dark Elves’ world.
“But the exclusive twist…is that one of the things that happens during the Asgardian attack is that Thor’s mother gets killed. So it becomes like a vengeance thing. And they were keeping very tight-lipped about what actually happens with Loki, you don’t know whether he redeems himself or he’s still the bad egg.”
In regards to IRON MAN 3:
“Well, there’s going to be a big fight sequence with The Mandarin, who’s the main villain, which will involve none other than forty different iron man suits. There’s an amazing rescue where The Mandarin basically wants to bring down the American government and kill the President, and he launches an attack on Air Force One. All of them – the President and his men and staff – get sucked out of the plane, and Iron Man rescues them by forming this amazing human chain in the sky.
“There’s some pretty spectacular stuff that goes on. There’s an amazing sequence where he has this rooftop house that he builds to store all his Iron Man suits, and it gets attacked by The Mandarin and these gunships […] I was shocked to discover there are like forty Iron Man suits written into this feature in various ways…so that’s going to be pretty impressive. But apparently he needs this Iron Man army to go up against The Mandarin’s forces.”
While all of this does indeed sound wonderful, it seems fans can only wait and see what lies in these two films. But it is interesting to note that this isn’t the first time we have heard these rumors, but there are some slight differences. Both rumors have been indeed posted here on WakingIdeas, but the biggest difference was that the rumor about THOR’s parent dying was first rumored to be his father Odin, and now it seems his mother is going to be killed off. While it still sticks to the outline of big character death and it being a family member, it is interesting to note that if it is indeed his mother, there was will more of an emotional impact and would justify the act of desperation clearly addressed in the remainder of the rumor.
IRON MAN 3 hits theaters May 3rd 2013 and THOR: The Dark World hit theaters November 8th 2013.
