Insane Movie Speculation: Do Justin Hammer’s ‘Iron Man 2′ Drones Echo Arnim Zola Robotics?
From sneaking Captain America's shield into "Iron Man," to plopping an icy super soldier in "The Incredible Hulk," (
along with another huge spoiler from "Iron Man 2") Marvel's Avengers movieverse practically encourages fans to seek and exploit Easter Eggs online. We hit on the phenomenon last week with a fabricated Ultron helmet Photoshopped from Hasbro's toy Iron Man helmet, and couldn't resist continuing our speculation when a closeup of Justin Hammer's IM2 drones hit the Web.
Marvel's official images give fans a close look at the robotic warriors, which sport bulky bodies and tiny light-up heads. Who else matches that description? Nazi scientist supervillain Arnim Zola, perhaps?
Until last night, I thought an appearance by Zola in Chris Evans' "Captain America" film would be a stretch. After all, Hugo Weaving's already been cast as the Red Skull and two villains seems like a "Batman Forever" move. Now that Toby Jones has officially landed the role of Zola, however, it's easy to imagine what he could end up looking like. [I had actually created this post in complete jest with Christopher Woltz's face earlier this week - maybe my lies are too potent!]
A little recoloring here, a little face stretching there, and there you have it: possible movie Arnim Zola body.
See the full, completely fabricated, comparison after the jump.
What do you think? Is a movie Zola a terrible idea? Or just crazy enough to work?
