Default Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - - - - - - Part 15

except mandarin was never mentioned in iron man 1 or 2. we who know that 10 rings = mandarin as leader via using such outside knowledge (comics) to skew what is actually presented in the films.

killian was working on extremis from 1999 to 2013, sometime after iron man 1, he appropriated the 10 rings logo, along with a bunch of other iconography, and formed the mandarin persona.

if iron man 1 had just one throwaway line about the mandarin then killian's line at the end of im3 would have expanded meaning, but sorry, i am not buying that he was in league with stane etc.

if killian was behind the hardships tony went through in the first movie, he would have let tony know in iron man 3. he would have gloated about it to no end.

Looks like you're a born loooooooooooooooserrrrrrrr
