Re: Iron Man 3 confirmed
Just FYI, there's precedence for the Mandarin wearing tech armor as well. He also even had a giant mechanical dragon once.
Interesting that the reports indicate that Favreau is on board with a third movie. Either way, I hope he is involved in some capacity if he does not actually direct. If Favreau is burnt out, I think a new director taking the reins wouldn't be bad for the franchise, but I would prefer Favreau staying on.
The thing is, Favreau has to stop being scared of approaching the Mandarin character. And anything remotely not tech-based. Like it or not, they are putting Iron Man in the realm of non-tech based/fantasy stuff. And we've known about it for years.
