There is a HOT rumor going around about the post-credits scene for Iron Man 3. So if you don't want this to be spoiled for you, STOP reading right now. If you dare to continue, please scroll down.
There is a rumor making the rounds saying director Edgar Wright will be shooting the post-credits scene for Iron Man 3 and it will introduce none other then Dr. Henry Pym, also known as Ant-Man.
"Before dropping out of the film, Andy Lau was cast to play a character described as a “good guy” scientist of sorts. That character will be a version of Chen Lu (Radioactive Man) from the books. In Marvel Comics, Chen Lu is a nuclear physicist for the People’s Republic of China and a villain of Iron Man who works for The Mandarin. His abilities from exposure to radiation give him green-colored skin and the abilities to control radiation in various ways. I wouldn’t expect all of that to show up in Iron Man 3, but do expect his connection with these characters to surface as well as his connection to… Ant-Man.
In the books, Henry Pym (Ant-Man) fought Radioactive Man, defeating Lu and having him deported to China, but years later, when Lu had dropped his villainous roots to work with other superheroes, he and Pym worked together during the Marvel Civil War, building a prison for super-powered people.
The character may have a significant role that has him returning in future Marvel films, but for Iron Man 3, he may just show up in a special post-credits scene where Ant-Man is finally introduced. It’s this after-credits scene that may be shot by Edgar Wright, the director who’s been attached to Ant-Man for years and who has submitted several versions of its screenplay to Marvel, a script which is touted as being funny and exciting.
This scene is likely what Wright referred to when he told Empire and Slash Film that he hopes to be shooting something for Ant-Man this year."
And BOOM goes the dynamite! Please, please let this be true because Ant-Man equals Ultron to be potentially introduced to Marvel's cinematic universe as a lethal villain who faces The Avengers.
