SPOILER SPECULATION: Could Guy Pearce's Villainous Killian Really Be Tony Stark's Brother In IRON MAN 3?
While the Mandarin has been the villain front and center Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian has been apart of the marketing campaign and even the toyline. It's possible that his role as villain is being underplayed because he may be revealed as Stark's brother Greg. We have kept hearing that how much of the Ultimates has influenced the Marvel cinematic universe even more so with the Iron Man franchise. However, one aspect of Tony's family life hasn't been revealed or even mentioned and that is an older brother existing.
Gregory Stark is a technological genius and has even surpassed his brother with his more advanced-tech. Greg has an army of nanites that reside within his body. These nanites are self-sustaining and grant Greg the ability to created force fields strong enough to withstand massive blows including dishing out energy blasts. A power similar to that of extremis which has been confirmed that Killian will end up applying to himself and others. Having him linked to Advanced Idea Mechanics seems like a solid way to include the evil group without having to rely on Modok or Strucker (known as Captain America villains) to back up the organization. Gregory might end up being a replacement for Norman Osborn as the head of H.A.M.M.E.R. (a rival to S.H.I.E.L.D) in Avengers sequels. Which could lead to the formation of the Masters of Evil/Dark Avengers and Greg becoming an Avengers baddie.
