The Mandarin better not take a back seat to anyone else in this movie, especially to War Machine.
The third one will be MUCH better if they completly drop War Machine from the movie.

Stane was decent but he isn't a heavyweight. When did they kill him off in the comics, anyway? The 80's? Where's the Joker/Doc Ock/Magneto calibur villains, huh?
I understand with them changing the villain from Crimson Dynamo to Stane in the first one, but they should've brought him in for the second one. And then they get a great actor like Mickey Rourke and he really doesn't do anything.
All missed opportunities in favor of War Machine and trying to make Tony into a team player.
