Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
As far as i know the Rising Tide was created for the show, i think it would actually make sence for AIM and Killian himself to be behind some of the events in Agents of SHIELD, However the show was being written before Iron Man 3 came out, while i'm sure Joss Whedon had access to the script before the film was released, he probably had another villain already in mind.
As i watch the film more i'm less angry about the twist, the film itself was quite strong, and i'dd rather get Killian than no Mandarin at all as there's much you can do with him, and he could fight on an equal ground against most Avengers.
