Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
I sometimes wish that they'd picked a different actor to play Trevor in IM3. Not because I don't think Kingsley was perfect in the role (He was absolutely amazing!), but because fans got so attached to the notion of him being the ACTUAL Mandarin that now they can't let it go.
They go from bashing Trevor's drunken goofiness to wishing that he was actually a double-twist villain mastermind behind IM3. I mean...come on. I've seen a lot of fan absurdity over the years...but I think this whole notion of "Trevor was terrible/Trevor would make a great Mandarin/the twist was horrible/there should be more twists" among some fans really takes the cake...
Phase 1 >>> IM - TIH - IM2 - Thor - CA: TFA - The Avengers
Phase 2 >>> IM3 - Thor: TDW - AoS - Agent Carter - CA: TWS - GotG - Avengers: Age of Ultron
Phase 3 >>> Ant-Man - Daredevil - Jessica Jones - Luke Cage - Iron Fist - The Defenders
