It had to happen. It was inevitable. With only a few weeks until release, the much anticipated post-credit scene for Iron Man 3 has been revealed. If you want it to be kept a surprise, we’d suggest exiting this article now. But, if you’re eager to know which Marvel character will show up in at the end of the film, then read on.
We had heard initially that Ant-Man would make an appearance and for a while, it seemed quite likely. Then, another rumour popped up that pointed to Tony Stark possibly flying out to space to meet up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Another option that seemed likely to happen.
Today though, Latino Review is putting a rest to the speculation as they have posted a description of what the post-credit scene will show. You can check it out below:
“It starts with a close shot of Tony Stark on a couch talking about his various traumas, obviously he’s talking to someone, as if he was seeing a shrink, the tone of the scene is light and supposedly funny. Then we discover that the person he’s talking to is Bruce Banner/Mark Ruffalo, who fell asleep because of Tony’s boring story. Tony remarks that Banner has been sleeping during the most part of his story and yells at him, and Banner just mumbles and says “You know, I’m not that kind of doctor!” Then Tony recalls another memory and resumes his monologue, and then we see Banner starting to fall asleep again.”
Now, of course, as the film hasn’t officially hit theatres yet, this may not be 100% accurate. That being said, the site sources a guest at the Paris premiere of the film as where they got the info from, so it’s probably pretty close to what we’ll be seeing.
Unfortunately, the scene doesn’t sound like much and doesn’t look like it’s going to set any events into motion for Phase Two. Then again, there may be another post-credit scene as well. Sometimes films have one after the top-billed cast are revealed and another when the full credits roll. So who knows?
Either way, it sounds like a humourous scene that plays off the enjoyable relationship between the two characters. Despite it not setting anything up for future films, I’ll still be sticking around for it, how about you?
Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black and stars Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Stephanie Szostak, Jon Favreau, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and the voice of Paul Bettany. It hits theatres on May 3rd, 2013.
