I've been pondering about this for a while but had no idea how to bring this into how the next movie would go. We know Tokyo-3 is definitely a wreck so staying there for all the movie is a big no no. However, what is IPEA's role? For one, they appear to have access to the EVAs with no NERV interference.
This got me thinking into the whole thing about IPEA opposing Seele. However, the real question is, Kaworu is here, with Mark.6 so how do they plan on taking them down.
A theory was that 08 is IPEAs answer to Mark.6 and that the pilot and Kaworu will come to blows in the future. So... what do you think IPEA might be up to?
SO THERE I WAS BEING KUBO, WHEN THE EDITORS CAME IN AND WERE LIKE "YOU NEED TO DO MORE THAN PANELS OF WHITE PILLARS AND BLACKGROUNDS!" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" SO THEY WERE LIKE "WELL HOW ABOUT SOMEBODY DYING?" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" AND I MADE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. I LOVE MY LIFE.
