Rumor Has It! IRON MAN 3 To Go Extremis

Back in November, we brought you the news about Marvel Studios deciding to take production on the third installment of the Iron Man franchise, penned by Drew Pearce and to be directed by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) to the Screen Gems studios in Wilmington, North Carolina.

While Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that a teaser for Iron Man 3 will be attached to the credits for The Avengers, because everything about the third Iron Man film has been rumors, we really don’t know much about the proposed story for the film.

Now, a new rumor out of Latino-Review says that Tony Stark will come in contact with Extremis, the military nanotechnology version of the Super-Soldier Serum created by Dr. Abraham Erskine that turned the meek Steve Rogers into the heroic Captain America.

In the Extremis story arc penned by Warren Ellis, the Extremis nanobots are first used by terrorists and later by Stark to enhance his Iron Man suit and give him additional powers and control over the suit. Their report also includes the rumor that Iron Man 3 will feature multiple villains.

As this is all purely speculation, I will leave it to our readers to decide. What say you? Awesome and probably true, lame and probably a load of crap, or somewhere in the middle?

Iron Man 3 is slated to hit theaters on May 3rd, 2013.
