I don't mind if they throw comic continuity out of the window as long as it results in a great film, obviously not to an extent like Aronofsky's Year One script, but I certainly don't like comic continuity holding films hostage. If whatever liberties you mention end up serving a purpose to make the film better while keeping the overal spirit and themes of the Iron Man character intact then I'm all for it.
