New Iron Man 3 Leaked Set Photos AIM-ing at Something
Posted 06.26.12 by Chris
With The Avengers riding into the theatrical sunset and the next Marvel Studios movie not expected until 2013, Marvel fans are undoubtedly hungry for news. Today we have some set photos from Iron Man 3 that will fend off that hunger, at least for the time being.
io9 posted the leaked set photos that confirm that Advanced Idea Mechanics will play a role in the sequel. In the comic books, AIM is an organization comprised of brilliant scientists dedicated to the acquisition of power and the overthrow of all world governments. AIM originated as a branch of HYDRA during World War II and as io9 points out, is best known as the company that experimented on technician George Tarleton, turning him into the infamous M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing).
Granted the photos aren't as tantalizing as previous set photos but we'll take what we can get.
Iron Man 3 is currently in production under the direction of Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce (No Heroics TV movie). Joining Robert Downey, Jr. in returning are Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, and Don Cheadle as Lt. James "Rhodey" Rhodes/War Machine. New additions include Guy Pearce as geneticist Aldrich Killian, Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen (unconfirmed), James Badge Dale as Eric Savin (who possibly becomes the cyborg Coldblood) and Ashley Hamilton as Jack Taggert (who possibly becomes the cyborg Firepower). Sir Ben Kingsley has also joined the cast as an unknown villain.
