Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
I was disapointed with the twist, since i loved the Mandarin's portrayal in the trailers and thought there was a lot of potencial with the idea of a super terrorist, could even put the USA ang government's morals into question.
But we got what we got, and Killian is the MCU's Mandarin, so i'd rather they use him than abandon him, or give a lame excuse to turn Trevor into the Mandarin or reveal another "Real" Mandarin. Say whatever you want about Loki but i think the MCU doesn't have very strong villains right now, Killian isn't really worse than any of them, i'd actually rate him quite highly in the scale.
Iron Man 3 is the only film of the MCU which i like the more i watch, i thank Shane Black for making the film so entertaining, i'm excited for what he'll bring to Doc Savage.
