** [[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.

* OldShame: Not for the whole film itself, it seems as though the MCU's writers don't seem to hold the movie's plot twist ([[spoiler:that the Mandarin is really an actor to distract the audience from the real villain, Aldrich Killian]]) in high regard based on the absurd amount of LeaningOnTheFourthWall in the Film/{{Marvel One Shot|s}} ''All Hail The King'', along with the {{Retcon}} that stated that [[spoiler:there is a "real" Mandarin that exists, and he's not happy with what happened in the events of ''Iron Man 3'']].

* FlipFlopOfGod: Oh, boy, the Mandarin... Creator/ShaneBlack initially said he had no intention of doing the Mandarin at all, citing the character's reputation as a racist stereotype as the reason. The Mandarin ended up appearing as the main villain, albeit casting the half-Indian Creator/BenKingsley as the Mandarin in order to avoid offending Chinese audiences and the movie's own Chinese financial backers. [[spoiler:Later, Black originally stated both in [[http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/05/04/iron-man-3-mandarin-spoiler/3/ an interview]] and on the commentary that Aldrich Killian was the actual MCU incarnation of the Mandarin, not Kingsley's Trevor Slattery.]] However... [[spoiler: ''[[Film/MarvelOneShots All Hail the King]]'' retconned it, revealing that Killian wasn't really the Mandarin, either, but someone else who is the real Mandarin wasn't happy with what Killian and Trevor did. Despite being assumed that this was because [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks how]] [[BrokenBase some people]] reacted to Killian being the Mandarin, co-writer Drew Pearce later said the short was ''not'' made to please Mandarin fans, but to fix the potential {{Plot Hole}}s caused by TheReveal]].

* TheCameo: Creator/StanLee as a judge in the beauty pageant covered by the newsvan Tony enters [[spoiler:and Creator/MarkRuffalo as [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] in TheStinger.]]



* DeathByCameo: Inverted with the AIM mook who gives up and runs away from Tony. He's played by the movie's fight coordinator, Si-Fu Eric Oram. This makes his line, 'Honestly, I hate working here; they are so weird.' even funnier.
