Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSituation: At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:Tony says he was able to prevent Pepper from exploding, but does she still have Extremis powers? Her next appearance in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' doesn't clarify the situation either.]]

* CaliforniaDoubling: The scenes taking place in Chattanooga, Tennessee, were actually filmed in Kenansville, North Carolina... [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2013/05/10/what-iron-man-3-got-wrong-about-chattanooga/ by people who had clearly never seen Chattanooga in real life.]] In real life, Chattanooga is mid-sized, fairly modern, and in an ironic twist, has some of the fastest internet speeds in the world.



* CastingGag: [[TheDragon Eric Savin]] is played by James Badge Dale [[spoiler:and Killian's plan involves using amputees as test subjects for the Extremis project, some of whom were military veterans. On ''24'', Dale played Jack Bauer's ex-military partner, and his appearance in season 3 ends with his hand getting chopped off.]]

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Upon being captured, Rhodes tells Killian that he'll have to pry the War Machine armor off of his cold, dead body. [[spoiler: Killian and his Extremis-wielding goons proceed to do just that by applying heat to the suit and threatening to cook him alive inside it if he doesn't vacate it voluntarily.]]

It later turns out The Mandarin was faked and the whole thing was staged, but it still counts since the President didn't know that.]]

* StrawmanHasAPoint:[[invoked]] {{Exploited}} and {{Subverted}}. The Mandarin uses past atrocities committed by the United States against Native Americans, Asian immigrants and other minorities to justify his own acts of terror, claiming them as PoeticJustice. Aside from the fact that he is still killing innocent people for crimes committed by their ancestors, [[spoiler: "The Mandarin" is just a stage actor, his "terrorist attacks" were mostly human experiments GoneHorriblyWrong, and the actual villains- Aldritch Killian and [=AIM=], don't give a damn about the historical crimes of the United States beyond the excuse it provides them, and are in fact planning to profit off of the American war industry.]]
