We reported during the week (here) that the Guardians of the Galaxy were strongly rumoured to appear at the end of Iron Man 3.
Well, according to Latino Review, we were pretty much on the money. It seems that at the end of the movie Tony Stark puts on the Iron Man Space Suit (see Funko toy below) and flies off into space to team up with, yes, The Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Why he gets tot hat point seems to be still under wraps. We’re wondering if this is more likely to be the after-credits scene as is now the norm with Marvel’s movies…
The rumours came about recently after Downey Jr remaked that: ”Everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of his could be useful. So they’re in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn’t expect to see them on the ground in this one.”
More fuel was put on the fire when the Funko toy emerged. So now it looks like it’s all true…
Iron Man 3 opens on April 26th
Paul from Order 66 Toys (find them right here) has just informed us that this all has to do with Radioactive Man and how he’ll tie into the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. He got his info, as so often happens these days, from the tie-in toys. A LEGO set called Mabul Mansion Attack (bit more info here). Rumour is that Radioactive Man is the main villain in Guardians of the Galaxy.
