Seriously. If you can't have fun watching an action-adventure movie, then what's the point? IM3 and STID were the most fun I've had in theaters so far this year.

I really didn't see anymore comedic tones in IM3 than Avengers, which people also complained about. Can't wait till T:TDW comes out and people cry foul over the inevitable humor in that one too. I think some fans just felt swindled by the marketing, unlike most of the GA and critics. As someone who much prefers what we got than what we were sold, I liked the surprises of it all. In a time of this incessant "mystery box"-ing, the real surprises this year came from Marvel. Whether that's a good thing or not is of course subjective.

Marvel schooled Abrams on how to do the whole "mystery box" thing. It's amazing how they were able to keep the Mandarin twist so well guarded, while everyone knew Abrams was full of **** when he said Khan wasn't in STID.

Yeah, I feel like they really got it right. The whole point of Abrams' marketing is to of course keep the movie a surprise like in the old days, but the old days didn't have the heavy social media and online journalism of today. Marvel did something really innovative by actually using those things and spinning them to their advantage. They really were a real-life Killian in that way, haha

Exactly.
The best adventure movies have healthy doses of humor in them. Look at the Indiana Jones series, and the ORIGINAL Star Wars trilogy. Some characters almost *require* grimdark --- Batman, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Blade, Wolverine, others...even Hulk solo --- but trying to leave humor out of the "four-color" comics like IM, CA, TA, Thor, FF, Superman, GOTG and Spidey runs counter to what their milieu is all about.

I actually liked the dark but humorous tone that IM1 set, it was a nice blend of dark and light.

I would've loved to see an IM3 without Killian and without Extremis. Use Ghost that wipes out all technology for the Ten Rings as they run havoc in the United States and most of the armors are wipe out except the Mark I where Stark has to use that junky armor against the Ten Rings and finally, Kingsley's Mandarin

But, if not that even, there is one article that had a "What If?" storyline that I really liked as well where they actually bring in magic and Mandarin has ten magic rings. That sounded better than what we actually got as well.



I definitely hope not.
I must say that I really like your Ghost idea there! I'd have loved to see something like that.

I dont mind a humour tone in Marvel films but I hope they keep it balanced and fits in with the character. IM3 went a bit too far for me but if they did that in a Punisher or DD film it really would not work.

There are levels to the humor that can be used. Ghost Rider, Blade, The Punisher; those characters would be more on the darker/serious side, the humor would have be pitch black.

I wonder if they'll use the character, for better or for worse Killian is the MCU's Mandarin, it would be a huge mistake to not use him again, not to mention that it would be beyond disapointing if he trully died the way he was last seen on screen
