"Iron Man 3" Alternate Ending : Shows a Different Fate for The Mandarin



Video: Alternate Iron Man 3 Ending Shows a Different Fate for The MandarinArtist Federico D'Alessandro worked on the storyboards for "Iron Man 3." And ever since the film hit theaters, he's been releasing animated versions of them online. One particular scene deals with the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), showing that the original plan for the villain was slightly different.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

In "Iron Man 3," Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) learns that the Mandarin is in Miami. But when he confronts him, the violent villain turns out to be nothing more than a cowardly British actor named Trevor Slattery, who was hired by Aldrich (Guy Pearce) to pose as the terrorist.

In the end, Trevor is arrested and taken to jail. But according to the storyboards, the original plan was for him to show up in the final battle. As Tony and Rhodey (Don Cheadle) are surrounded, Trevor shows up and injects himself with the Extremis virus. But he doesn't know how to use it and ends up exploding.

The initial plan was obviously to kill Trevor and the Mandarin along with him. But since Trevor was just arrested and remains alive, some believe that Marvel may bring him back to reveal that he's not some actor, but the real villain who had Aldrich fooled.
