Iron Man 3 (2013)

100:00-105:00

Ellis is tied to the Iron Patriot armour.

Stark and Rhodes are spotted and shooting begins.

They do some shooting. Likely some killing.

Extremis soldiers turn up. But the. So do a whole lot of Iron Man armour. That would have been so fun to design. Each one of them has a designation. Let’s check em out.

The first one to arrive then slow and stop is Mark 17. It’s called the Heartbreaker because of its oversized chest plate.

Scanning the soldiers is Mark 37. An aquatic suit named Hammerhead.

First to take them to church is the Mark 20. Called Python, it’s a long distance suit.

Next to attack is Mark 41, a black and gold skeletal looking armour called Bones.

Igor is Mark 38. He’s named after the character from Dracula, who had a hunched back.

Red Snapper is Mark 35. It has big claws.

Stark is picked up by Mark 33 (Silver Centurion – the name of a classic armor in the comics). Rhodey is taken by Mark 17.

Battling two Extremis soldiers with jackhammer arms is Mark 25, called Striker.

105:00-110:00

Iron Man Mark 22 Hot Rod in Iron Man 3 (2013)

Stark jumps into Mark 22 (Hot Rod), but it is destroyed in the last second.

Stark tries to free Pepper, but is attacked by Killian.

Killian gets his arm cut off. This is major trope in Marvel’s phase 2, where every film features a arm getting cut off, in apparent homage to The Empire Strikes Back.

Rhodey saves the President. Pepper falls to the ground. Killian confronts Stark, and they fight.

Iron Man Mark 16 Nightclub in Iron Man 3 (2013)

Tony slides past Killian into the Mark 16. Called Nightclub, it is a stealth suit, which maybe why Killian didn’t notice it.

Tony then ejects out and into Mark 40.

110:00-115:00

Killian has two big dragon tattoos on his chest. There’s some conjecture that this ties into Iron Man baddie Fin Fang Foom.

Mark 42 returns and crashes. It envelops Killian and explodes.

Iron Man Mark
Iron Man Mark 15 Sneaky in Iron Man 3 (2013)

Tony jumps and manages to escape in the Mark 15 (Sneaky).

Killian survives. He says that he has always been the Mandarin. So what happened here? It is later revealed that Killian isn’t the Mandarin. But it kind of makes sense that he was behind the events of the first two films. About as much sense as his current plan.

Pepper, with Extremis powers, joins the fight.

She is targeted by Mark 8, which she brings down.

115:00-120:00

Clean slate protocol. The rest of the armours explode. Somewhat dangerous, and environmentally unfriendly way to dispose of the suits.

We see some faces in flashback, Maya and Killian.

Vice President is arrested, and Rhodey is there.

Trevor Slattery is arrested. Location unknown.

Dr Wu, who we saw at the very start of the film, is back. He helps cure Pepper, and gets the metal out of Tony’s chest. This scene was extended in the Chinese version.

Tony and Pepper share a moment.

Happy wakes, and has a moment with the nurse and watches Downton Abbey.

Harley has a gift waiting for him.

Tony looks over the remains of his Malibu place. Again, instead of disposing of the arc reactor properly, he throws it into the sea. Wasn’t getting one of these things the whole plot of Iron Man (2008)?

And then credits.

Post Credits Scene

Turns out that Tony has been talking to Bruce Banner, played by Mark Ruffalo.
