Default Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2

They tried to do what Nolan did with his Batman films in the sense that they added political subtext and commentary. The difference?

The Dark Knight was at heart, still a Batman vs Joker story that just happens to be socially/politically relevant.

With Iron Man 3 it felt like Shane Black went out of his way to have this IMO. The twist did not feel natural and necessary to where the story was going.

I'm not a fan of how they executed it either.
