Iron Man 3 Spoiler Podcast Special

Shane Black and Drew Pearce spill beans

Iron Man 3, The Mandarin

Iron Man 3 director Shane Black and his co-writer Drew Pearce were kind enough to spend 25 minutes or so talking to us about their twist-filled Marvel outing recently, and here - alongside a 45-odd minute spoiler-filled discussion from Team Empire - is the result, a fascinating insight into what almost made the cut and how that plot point came about.

Needless to say, many, many, many spoilers are contained within, so be sure to watch Iron Man 3 before you listen to this.

Also, if you'd rather skip the team's dissection of the movie, jump to 45.37 for all the Black and Pearce goodness.
