Savin had healed after being caught in Taggert's fatal explosion as well as from wounds he received while fighting Tony in Tennessee. Therefore there is no reason why Killian's survival would be absolutely out of the question, given his powers. Also, Kevin Feige stated that we will see Extremis in other films, which may or may not involve Killian's resurrection.
Well my reply stemmed from a poster suggesting that Extremis could change the Mandarin's look, BUT....if what you're suggesting is true, then damnit. Let alone the Mandarin twist, but Extremis itself was something that I didn't like how it was portrayed and it's rather sometimes inconsistency. So much for the idea that the Extremis plot will be gone
