Iron Man 3
What if Tony Stark's penthouse confrontation with Loki in The Avengers had been different? Or the Wasp had been in the movie during the final battle? What if a pivotal character in Iron Man 3 had died?
Well, now you can see those alternate scenes via some just-released animatics from artist Federico D'Alessandro. Check out the whole bunch -- three from Iron Man 3 and four from The Avengers -- after the jump (Warning: Spoilers for both movies follow if you still haven't seen them).
Want to watch Iron Man 3 but don't have the patience to either wait for its release on Blu-ray/DVD/digital on September 24... or sit through its 130 run time? YouTube channel Movieclips Trailers' original 16-bit video game style short could be for you (also, maybe a trip to your physician about a mild relaxant?). Zipping through the film's entire story in less than four minutes, the speed run style animation pixelates each plot point with the kind of efficiency you'd expect from a retro side scroller action game.
Tuesday gets tubular with tons of links after the jump.
Hit the jump for a look at Wednesday's links.
Video: Tony "Man At Arms" Swatton forges his own version of Link's Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda series, which is much more difficult than just pulling it out of the floor at the Temple of Time.
TV: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. assemble
One of the big selling points of Iron Man 3, other than Ben Kingsley's crazy and wonderful Mandarin voice, was the sheer volume of Iron Man armors that appeared in the film. There were a ton. Considering the likely weight of the armor, probably more than a ton. But not every armor designed by artist Josh Nizzi was used in the movie, and he was kind enough to share some of his unused designs, including one that I can only call the Metal Gear Solid/Metroid armor.
