Guess who’s back in Iron Man 3?! [Spoilers ahead]Posted 7:20 pm on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 by Mark Pacis
As we wait for the long-awaited trailer for next year’s Iron Man 3, details have surfaced from Latino Review that certain foes from Tony’s past will be making an appearance in Iron Man 3. Who are they exactly? Well take a look at the picture below and see if you can recognize the emblem.
Not sure who they are yet? As you can see from the screenshot below the emblem belongs to none other than the terrorist organization known as the Ten Rings. Latino Review believes that the Ten Rings logo featured on the production crews caps indicates that the terrorist organization will be back in Iron Man 3.
For those not familiar with Iron Man lore, the Mandarin (Iron Man 3′s primary antagonist) discovered 10 rings of power from the crashed ship of the alien dragon Axonn-Karr. Over the years, the Mandarin learned how to utilize the rings and used its power to rise as Tony Stark’s greatest foe. It now seems that the Ten Rings organization will come full circle in Iron Man 3 but no details have emerged on how all this relates to the Mandarin. My belief is that the Mandarin runs not only the Ten Rings but also the OTHER criminal organization A.I.M. as well. The Mandarin in the comics has the same intellect and business savvy as Tony Stark and has outsmarted Tony on several occassions. So having the Mandarin run both organizations in order to take Tony Stark down only makes sense. A.I.M. is used to do research and development for weapons of mass destruction, and the Ten Rings uses said WMDs to inflict terrorism on the world. But hey that’s all my theory and it’s all speculation.
Iron Man comes out May 3rd.
