In case you have been worried about that fact that those in China got to see a longer version of Iron Man 3 than you, put those cares to rest. As it turns out, the execs in charge have decided that we in the West shall also be graced with the extra footage, albeit sometime in the vague future. They’re taking the cut scenes from the Chinese Iron Man 3 and putting them together in a short film. And – bonus! – they’ll be putting in some other cut footage as well, footage that not even China has been witness to.
Tentatively titled The Prologue, this short film is supposed to show some more back-story for Dr. Wu along with all the other stuff that didn’t make the cut. From what I’ve heard, it’s mostly forgettable, though you never know what other footage they might find lying around that they’ll cram into the film at the last minute to make it even cooler. So cross your fingers.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on the how and when of it. So we may all end up having to wait for a Blu-ray release to see any of it. Whatta scam, you greedy bastards!
