In their early years, Wasp and Invisible Girl were sexist caricatures. Helpless females who always need powerful men to rescue them.

And what are they today? It's not that difficult to "upgrade" a character a little bit by creating a new interpretation of him...

The Mandarin was good enough for the 2007 animated movie "The Invincible Iron Man" (Lionsgate). So I don't see any reason why he shouldn't work for IM3.

Psyched, wouldn't mind if it were a new character, just don't throw him in another iron suit with an identical HUD and we'll be right as rain.

No lie, if this really is in the movie I'm going to start saving up for tickets to either the World premiere or US premiere of Avengers 2.

That would make Iron Man the first superhero in the world to have his own film trilogy and not fight his archfoe from the comics in it!

I'll always wonder why the creators of THANOS gave him a furrowed chin, which was already so characteristic of another, thoroughly unrelated, entire species, THE SKRULLS.

I thought that chin was indicative of the Deviants, which the Skrull derived from.

An ancient branch of the Deviants would become what we know as Skrulls; Thanos was born a mutant possessing that Deviant gene and thus resembles them more than his own people.

Oh my god that's so weird... I've been watching the Sopranos for the first time and I was just watching that episode that starred Ben Kingsley and them trying to get him to act in their film

If i'm thinking of the same set you guys are talking about on CBM it's def not Ultron.. it was just an X-Ray of Loki's staff that's in the background.. check again i'm almost positive.

Why is that so odd? You may as well ask why those creating alien races gave those races a nose, which is something that's characteristic of the human race? Tons of races in sci-fi and fantasy share multiple features. So why should it be unusual for two separate alien races to share one feature, especially given that they share so many other features with humans?

I'm from Denmark, and I was surprised to find out that we Danes are actually getting this movie on the 26'th of April! Where as YOU guys in America, aren't getting it until May 4'th - a whole 8 days LATER!... why??? Anyway, I've booked my tickets for the midnight premier, and I'll be back to give a (hopefully positive) spoiler-free review! :-)

Thanos was created as Marvel's answer to New God Metron, from Jack Kirby's "Fourth World Saga".



However, Marvel's editor-in-chief said that if they were going to "rip off a New God, it should be the cool one, Darkseid".



You can see the similarities.
