Do not read this article if you want to avoid the spoilers for the possible post-credit sequence scene in Iron Man 3.
Are you still with me?
Ok, for those who want to know, there is talk about a post credit teaser at the end of Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 that will introduce armor known as the “Deep Space Suit.” That may not mean much to anyone who doesn’t read comics, but it goes a long way in showing how Marvel Movies will introduce their latest addition to the successful franchise.
In the Marvel Comics, Iron Man is a part of the world of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
This all started with a teaser by Latino Review that the post credits sequence would lead to the introduction of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, Io9 reports that the sequence might be showing Tony Stark finally prepare to test out his new “Deep Space Suit” to discover the source of an SOS signal in the “far reaches of space.” That distress call is from Star-Lord and there begins the adventures of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1 came out this last week in stores and provided an introductory history lesson for fans who are unfamiliar with the character of Star-Lord. At the end of the issue, we see the Guardians of the Galaxy and learn that Star-Lord was telling his story to Tony Stark aboard their spacecraft. That is when Iron Man says he is with them and they take off for their new adventure.
Could Iron Man play into the upcoming James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy movie? That would help tie the entire movie in to the structured Marvel Movie universe and set up Avengers 2.
What do you guys think? Excited to see Iron Man continue on in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie?
