***IRON MAN SPOILERS BELOW***
If you, like me, missed the final scene of the movie because you wanted to blog about it had more important things to do, you need not fear! The ending scene has been leaked to the Internets! Check it out above!For more info on what’s going on, who’s SHIELD, what Samuel L. Jackson is doing there and what Tony Stark will most likely be getting into in Iron Man 2, hit the jump!
In the Marvel Universe, SHIELD stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (at least, according to the Iron Man movie). As mentioned in the movie, it’s a secret intelligence agency, but what we didn’t know was that it specializes in counter-terrorism and heh, superhuman threats.
In the trailer, we have all the awesomeness of Samuel L. Jackson saying that Iron Man has just begun. He plays Nick Fury, a cigar-chomping super-spy for SHIELD. While he’s supposed to be a good guy, we’re all for an Iron Man-Nick Fury (or rather, Iron Man-Samuel L. Jackson) war.
So this hints at what we should expect in the next movie. Also, this just in – Marvel has officially announced that Iron Man 2 will be hitting theatres April 30th 2010. Sorry folks, no Iron Man goodness next year. 😀
Also keep an eye out for The Avengers, which Marvel has slated for July 2011, which must also feature Iron Man (albeit in a team-player sort of role).
Can’t wait for these!
