But I can sympathize with the fans regarding Kingsley's wasted potential and Mandarin vs. IM to be lacking in grandiose.
I read a article a while back saying Feige contacted, I think Abrams? on how to execute the third act. excluding the plot twist affect on the movie, what does everyone think of the third act (entire action sequence)?
i believe that abrams thing was in reference to him helping on iron man 1, not 3.
