Re: Favorite villain of the trilogy?
Totally Killian/Mandarin. Best motivation/evil plot/characterization. Granted, in the end he's a classic 80s evil business archetype, but he's a lot of fun.
Also, anyone else think Kingsley's Mandarin was absolutely hilarious? I'm talking pre-twist here. He was such a blast, especially his cynical take on fortune cookies. Kingsley's performance just rocked, best scene chewery in years
Stane and Hammer were both very amusing as well. Stane provided a good threat, though he kinda goes downhill in the third act once he suits up of course.
