They did get that sans the rings.

Which. . . actually sounds like a viable take on the Joker, to me, as long as his motive is still "create theatrical crime and chaos."
Point taken. The modern interpretations of the Mandarin have him portrayed as a scientist/business man who manipulates people from behind the shadows which is exactly what Killian did in IM3. He was far more closer to the comic Mandarin something these so called 'fans' don't even acknowledge.

Did you not read what he said? I like the X-Men films with X-2 being my 2nd favorite CBM of all time but I'm not gonna sit here and pretend that Singer didn't butcher more than half the characters to the point where the films have become the X-Men in name only. That being said, DOFP is my most anticipated CBM next year.
