Instead I got "Robert Downey Jr. starring as himself in Lethal Weapon 5 with a cameo by Marvel's Iron Man armor". However, if that's how you feel I'm afraid we'll NEVER see eye-to-eye. Agree to disagree.
You were bothered that he wasn't in the suit enough?

I liked that. I like taking a character and putting him in a situation he's not usually in. You get some neat stuff when you do that. I don't see that as being unfaithful to the source material, I see that as doing something new with it.

He's still got shades of it. His "chi powers" and hell the name alone are still a little racist. Turning him into a white guy certainly is a step forward in the "let's have him not be a racial caricature anymore" thing.
