Marvel is well-known for inserting scenes into their films to surprise audiences, and Iron Man 3 is no different. As always, stay to the end of the credits. What is different about Tony Stark’s latest adventure is that the film’s Chinese release is four minutes longer than in the rest of the world. China helped co-finance the film (though it isn’t an official co-production) and the Chinese footage features cameos by some of the country’s most famous actors. Those four minutes got a lot of fanboy interest when director Shane Black said they featured an “interesting surprise.”
Iron Man 3 premiered in China Wednesday night and details of those scenes have now made it online. Sorry, there are no major revelations like an appearance from villain Fin Fang Foom.
