Yesterday, Entertainment Tonight released five seconds of a preview for the upcoming Iron Man 3 Super Bowl trailer. Surely, in that brief five seconds, there couldn’t be any major Iron Man 3 spoilers revealed? Think again!
While most of the Iron Man 3 Super Bowl sneak peek was previously released footage, there was a little bit of new footage. There is a brief shot of Iron Patriot with his mask open, revealing that it is in fact James Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle) in the armor. Of course, everyone pretty much already knew that, so it wasn’t much of a spoiler.
But here’s the biggie. Freeze frame the explosion at the Malibu mansion, then take a gander at the fireplace. There are three stockings hung by the fireplace with care, two red ones and a green one. Two of the stockings are likely for Tony Stark and Pepper Potts, but who is the third stocking for? Could Pepper Potts be expecting? It’s not uncommon for an excited couple to hang up a Christmas stocking for a baby that is on the way.
Of course, the third stocking could also be for someone else that lives in the house. And another spoiler that is revealed in the Iron Man 3 trailer sneak peek is that it appears Maya Hansen (played by Rebecca Hall) is caught up in the explosion. Could Maya be living at the mansion in a Three’s Company-like scenario?
We’re pretty sure that Pepper Potts might have an issue with another attractive lady moving into the mansion, so we’re guessing that Maya is just visiting. Which leads us back to the mysterious third stocking?
