Damn toy companies.
In an interview with Geoff Boucher (congrats on new gig) over at EW, Robert Downey Jr. was asked about potential cameos in the upcoming Iron Man 3 and he said this:
"Everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of his (Tony's) could be useful. So they’re in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn’t expect to see them on the ground in this one."
That toy company Funko dropped pictures of their upcoming Pop! Vinyl figures for Iron Man 3. One of them is for Iron Man 'Deep Space Suit' (pictured below). Check it out.
AT THE REQUEST OF FUNKO WE HAD TO TAKE THE IMAGE DOWN...SORRY FOLKS.
FINAL SPOILER WARNING!
According to sources, at the end of Iron Man 3, Tony actually does go up into space to hook up with the Guardians of The Galaxy where I also hear he appears at the end of that movie as well.
So the answer is yes, Tony does go into Deep Space and hooks up with that Guardians. Hat tip to Mike Sampson over at Screencrush, Germain Lussier over at Slashfilm & Spencer Perry over at Superhero Hype for guessing correctly.
Like I said last week, toy companies have a habit of spoiling plot points of upcoming superhero hero films. Here is your example.
Also if you haven't noticed, here is another hint, Tony Stark is currently starring in the Marvel NOW! Guardians of the Galaxy comic book.
