ComicBookMovie.com has posted several new images and a video that show what looks to be a big aerial action scene in the movie. Keep reading after the jump to find out more. Be warned, there will be potential spoilers.
In last week's images, we saw Iron Man seemingly saving a bunch of people from a plane crash. CBM says that these new photos -- which show people falling to the ground with parachutes -- detail what takes place before Iron Man shows up. The photographer who snapped the pictures told the site that Air Force One is the plane that goes down, seemingly by the attack helicopters that can be seen in some of these images. The survivors are supposed to be flight attendants (as we already saw) and some high-ranking military officials.
It seems like that should be fellow government official James "Rhodey" Rhodes' job to save these people now, especially since we know he's going to be the character wearing the Iron Patriot armor we've seen on set. When we talked to Don Cheadle at Comic-Con, he said that Rhodey's new military-commissioned Iron Man suit is going to be a point of contention between him and Tony Stark.
"We've got a private sector and a public sector, or rather a military version of Iron Man. And I think there is a desire from the powers that be to make sure that those things are distinguished and distinguishable so that we know where everybody stands," Cheadle said.
"Iron Man 3" hits theaters on May 3, 2013.
