Re: Mandarin discussion thread
Hypestyle, that doesn't sound organic at all. That sounds pretty convoluted.
AVEITWITHJAMON, Whiplash isn't a very interesting character on the page, but because his power and motivation is simple, he translates to the screen well.
IronGirl299, I think Mandarin's too important to make a good movie with, he's got a lot going on that would distract from a story, from his alien tech, to his chinese idology to his archaeology obsession... there's not a good way to tie that all together in a story other than: chinese people suck - which is what he was originally design to show...
