On topic I tend to believe Whiplash is dead. I have liked recurring villain's in the past, Mystique and Magneto come to mind. Perhaps Mandarin can be a threat for more than one film almost guaranteeing a good 3rd and 4th movie. I think if they are going to have a recurring Villian in films, it has to be the arch nemesis.
Actually, IM3 is the last one. ftr.
