** 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.



* CreatorBacklash: Mild example, but Rebecca Hall was unhappy that she was led to believe Maya Hansen would have a bigger role[[spoiler:, only for the character to be killed off before the third act]].

* 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: Given [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks how]] [[BrokenBase some people]] reacted, Marvel and co-writer Drew Pearce decided to retcon it, revealing in ''[[Film/MarvelOneShots All Hail the King]]'' 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 this, Pearce later said the short was ''not'' made to please Mandarin fans, but to fix the potential {{Plot Hole}}s caused by TheReveal]].

Despite this, 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]].



** As for official Iron Man 3-branded Lego: One of the sets [[spoiler: is called "Iron Man vs. the Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown", and features Tony going up against the Mandarin in a weird weapon-covered tank-thing, the obvious implication being that this is a toy recreation of the film's big final battle. That's right, even ''the toys'' are deliberately misleading you as to the film's plot! (There's also a set based on the scene where Tony's house gets blown up which includes a Mandarin figure, implying he's flying one of the helicopters.)]]

** Many elements in the film were [[spoiler: {{Red Herring}}s that were obviously designed to fool the audience, such as getting someone as high-profiled as BenKingsley to play The Mandarin (who's nothing more than a dupe) and the post-credit scene not being an Avengers 2 plug.]]

* ExecutiveMeddling: Ellen Brandt and Maya Hansen were originally going to have larger roles in the story and the villain was supposed to be female, but Marvel's corporate wing insisted that the BigBad had to be male, following the reasoning that toys based on female characters wouldn't sell. The entire script had to be altered as a result.

** In early drafts, Maya Hansen was going to be the main antagonist of the film, being the mastermind behind everything, instead of [[spoiler:Killian]].

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Film/{{Gand|hi}}[[Creator/BenKingsley hi]] appears to have pulled a FaceHeelTurn, and now wants Film/SherlockHolmes dead for stopping his terrorist organization's operations. [[spoiler:And he's still played by a British actor, but this time in-universe.]]
** Looks like [[Film/{{Memento}} Leonard]] [[note]]Guy Pearce[[/note]] found the solution to his memory condition; Extremis.
** After [[Film/ThePacific serving in the Pacific during World War II]], Savin used to [[Series/TwentyFour fight terrorists]] rather than be one.
*** He got to meet [[Series/ThePacific Chesty]] [[Creator/WilliamSadler Puller]] again, who'd got himself elected President.
** And the "that guy" duo of [[Film/TheShawshankRedemption Heywood]]/[[Film/BillAndTed Death]] as President and [[Film/RoboCop1987 Bob Morton]]/[[Series/TwinPeaks Albert Rosenfield]]/[[Series/NCISLosAngeles Owen Granger]]/[[Series/CrossingJordan Dr. Macy]] [[Creator/MiguelFerrer as Vice-President]].
*** IronyAsSheIsCast: Creator/WilliamSadler's StarMakingRole was [[Film/DieHard2 a military terrorist.]] [[spoiler:TheReveal [[HilariousInHindsight even involves a traitor from the government]]!]]
** [[Series/HappyEndings Max Blum]] is an avowed Tony Stark fan.
** Film/{{Vicky|CristinaBarcelona}} and [[Film/LAConfidential Ed Exley]] develop the Extremis virus.
** The Extremis soldier who beats up Rhodey in Pakistan is [[Series/{{Lost}} Charlotte]]. No, actually, she's [[Series/OnceUponaTime the Wicked Witch of the West.]]
*** Apparently, another Extremis soldier (the guy Rhodes confronted before saving the President) looks apparently similar to one the guys who were with Agent Hobbs [[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious during their trip to Brazil]].
** Mrs. Davis is [[Series/MyNameIsEarl Patty the Daytime Hooker]].
** [[Film/StraightOuttaCompton Dr. Dre]]/[[Series/TheWalkingDead Heath]] joined the navy.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The Vice President is played by Creator/MiguelFerrer, who's no stranger to comic book adaptations: He has been [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Aquaman, Weather Wizard]], [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman Sinestro]], [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheNewFrontier J'onn J'onzz]], [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan Silvermane]], and [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice Vandal Savage]]. He's also Shan Yu, the main villain of ''Disney/{{Mulan}}''.
