That does not equate to me using it as prime reasoning for RM being in the movie. You did not correct me, I'm guessing you just didn't read the entire conversation and posted that list as a result.
No, cherokeesam did not say that. In fact, I said *exactly* the opposite. No, Marvel does NOT mislead or misdirect or lie about their characters and plot points (Chitauri notwithstanding; I'm not going to go digging for it, but I *do* remember early on in Avengers speculation that Feige said specifically that the Chitauri wouldn't be there), and I specifically said that Feige and Marvel are *not* like Nolan, M. Night and JJ Abrams, in that respect.
And there is absolutely no proof whatsoever that Dr. Wu is Chen Lu. Feel free to find evidence to the contrary anywhere. That makes it even less likely that there's a Radioactive Man anywhere in IM3.
All people heard was "pale green bad guy with veins," and they went with Radioactive Man. Again, that's ONE possibility. Of many.
