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

Video: Alternate "Iron Man 3" Ending Shows a Different Fate for The MandarinSubmit Comment
Artist 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.


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.

Check out the animated storyboards below and let us know of Trevor should be brought back in the future.

Well geez you show that it seems like the original ending was way better. I personally would love that idea of Trevor returning and actually being the Mandarin. That all of this was a plot to maneuver pieces of a chess board. That would work great...but sadly I don't see that happening since it seems Downy Jr. may not return for Iron Man 4 where the Mandarin would reappear.

That ending also sucked...

They could've made it more interesting if the Mandarin was so smart that he fooled Stark in believing he was just an actor and manipulate Stark in believing Killian was the head of the organization, but letting Killian say something about needing to work with a "ruthless silent partner who would stop at nothing..." blah, blah. That later turned out to be the Mandarin.

Like a Keiser Soze type of fake out...the Mandarin would lose that stupid look and change his demeanor vowing revenge at the end credits. NOW THAT would've piqued interest for the next one.

The whole thing was just a shame for such cool, heartless speeches he gave to just be a lackey...

Also, I remember initial shots of the Mandarin had a tattoo of Captain America's shield on his neck...everyone just had rumors. Have they addressed that yet? What the f*ck was that all about?
