Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 1
Very disappointed with the treatment of the Mandarin in this film. When I saw the trailers and Kingsleys portrayal of him I thought wow they've gone down the right route and he's going to be awesome. Then the first half or so of the movie he had such a great presence I couldnt wait for them to face off and then that bloomin twist comes along.....sigh
I would have been fine with it if they just went ahead and NOT called him the Mandarin but rather just some terrorist leader but now with this it looks like we're never going to get a real Mandarin. Although I do get some of the comments you guys have made of what made Killian the real Mandarin but I would have preferred the Mandarin we got in the trailers.
