Latino Review claims to have the big scoop on what we can expect, and it can be summarized in one word: plastics. Oh wait, wrong movie. It's actally: nanobots. According to the site, "The Avengers" plot will lead right into "Iron Man 3," and those tiny little things will "make villains" and turn Tony Stark into "more than a man in a suit." So what does this all mean for those of us who haven't read the comics?
Well, this all points to Iron Man Model 30 (aka Extremis Armor) in which Tony Stark injects his nervous system with some kind of hybrid virus after battling a nanotechnology tricked out enemy. This allows Iron Man to essentially become a cyborg, fusing Stark's body to his armor and controlling it via brain impulses. And depending on which stories you read, he gains even more powers such as the ability to heal and quasi anti-gravity. Captain America will apparently say something to Tony Stark during "The Avengers" that inspires all this madness. So, who's the baddie then? What's the actual storyline? We suppose we'll have a much better idea after the inevitable post-credits Easter egg in "The Avengers."
All told, we suppose we'll find out soon enough what's in store with "Iron Man 3" as it arrives in just over a year on May 3, 2013. Shane Black writes and directs. Watch below for a much nerdier explanation of what this all means.
