Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
I agree, I think IM3 was the smartest of not only the Iron Man movies, but the MCU movies too. There's a massive bandwagon approach, as I said before that people focus on the "raping of the Mandarin", whose fans I never saw anywhere until IM3. I understand wanting what we got in the trailer, but how else would you play it out? Kingsley duking it out with RDJ using power rings? I agree TW went into excessiveness over the ending (didn't bother me in the slightest), but focusing on TS seems to be the big debate here, not the fact that people wanted Marvel to quit playing it safe and take risks, then the second they do, it's a big controversy.
This is my design.
Raimi or not, it's absolutely hilarious how much Sony realizes they screwed the pooch.
