i think if he was behind the whole trilogy the movie would have spelled it out; it's too important to leave ambiguous imo.
Even if it wasn't explicitely spelled out, Marvel's official stance - as personified by the quote I gave from Feige, as well as by other quotes and statements from the same article from which the two quotes I referenced come (http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/05/0...darin-spoiler/
) - is that Killian was directly responsible - albeit in a behind-the-scenes fashion - for everything that happened to Tony in both IM1 and IM2. I don't know why so many people continue to persist in ignoring that.
