You guys are mourning for a character that didn't exist in the first place. And there's no way to say it was Iconic. The Mandarin is not iconic. The Mandarin presented in the trailers was certainly not iconic, how could it be? It was just a snippet.

The comic villain hierarchy doesn't matter to me whatsoever, thus my satisfaction with the movie's Mandarin. I think the true Mandarin in the movie is great, the fact that he had a double to put forth as the face to the name was smart on his part, and the movie makers, and the fact that all of us didn't see it coming is even better.

Life is one vile task after another.
