IM3 Spoilers. Ben Kingsleys Mandarin was kinda designed to be this big fakeout though. It was pretty clever considering all the marketing of the film centering on building him up. Unless you're referring to Guy Pearce's Killian, in which case yeah, a bit weak. I'm still laughing at when he breathed fire like a dragon though. A friend and I have been getting kicks out've that for a few days.
That is who I was talking about, but yeah the comedy in the film was gold
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
