Yesterday we brought you four animatics showing alternate scenes and endings for Marvel’s The Avengers. Today, three new videos from Iron Man 3 have been released showing alternate endings in which a main character dies — a very different ending from that of the actual film.
The first clip shows Rhodey escaping through the film’s final battle scene without his Iron Patriot suit. Rhodey is rescued on several occasions by multiple Iron Man suits before finding the President at the end of the clip:
The second clip shows an alternate version of the fight between Tony Stark in the Iron Man suit(s) and Killian. We see Tony attempt to suit up, only to have his homing pieces intercepted by a massive splash of water. The end of the clip shows Tony directing the pieces to instead fly onto Killian, capturing him:
The final clip reveals an interesting alternative story change and alternate ending for the film’s faux-villain, The Mandarin. His downfall is quite… explosive:
These clips come ahead of Iron Man 3‘s Blu-ray and DVD release on September 23rd, 2013! Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Tony Stark in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
