Basically until you get an actor with as much charisma as RDJ who can actually make the character their own, they will keep throwing money at Iron Man and IM related media.

That's hilarious, it's like they went, "Well, we probably already pissed some people off with the Mandarin thing so we might as well just twist the knife a little more." The fact that it upsets people just makes it funnier to me.

I don't see why anyone thinks that definitively. All Tony said at the end of the film is that they got Pepper's problem "sorted out." That could mean that they removed the Extremis from her body. It could also mean that they stabilized her powers so they won't make her explode. It was vague enough that it could be interpreted either way in later films. I think that was the idea.

Joss helped re-write some scenes for Thor :The Dark World...

Quote:
"Joss came in to save our lives a couple of times," laughs the director. "We had a major scene that was not working on the page at all in London, and he basically got airlifted in, like a SWAT team or something. He came down, rewrote the scene, and before he got back to his plane I sort of grabbed him and said, 'And this scene and this scene?' And he rewrote two other scenes that I thought had problems. Then finally we let go of him, he took off again, and we shot the scenes; and they were just much better and much lighter on their feet. Much more fun, much more surprising than what we had been trying to do. I can relate to guys who come out of the TV world, since that's where I come from. And being able to land and work and solve a problem quikcly... I really was grateful."

I see Joss Whedon knows his characters from inside out, Marvel has really caught their best man for the job, while i was a little disapointed with his work on The Avengers he may be the best thing that happened to the MCU since Kevin Feige and Robert Downey JR

I can understand with Nick Fury Jr, but if the original one who has been white all these years suddenly turns black, that will take some explanation. It's not quite the same as making someone black for a movie adaptation. It's not like in the comics, someone can go up to white Nick Fury and say that there's nothing inherently white about him and then he suddenly turns black. Please explain.
There's a whole story/mini seires on how Coulson and Nick Fury JUNIOR are introduced into the 616 universe called BATTLE SCARS. Hehe Coulson's name however until the LAST issue is CHEESE hahahaha you don't KNOW he's Coulson for sure until then last page.

I have ZERO problem with Coulson being introduced into the comics, I like his character. I don't even have an issue with Fury having a mixed-race son, the man's been around for a century, its not that hard to buy. The big issue that I had was ridiculously contrived it was that he ended up looking EXACTLY like Samuel L. Jackson's Fury.

Well what's wrong with that? It's not like there is an already existing person in the 616 universe who looks like that. It's like complaining that it was ridiculously contrived how Iron Man's armour in the movies ended up looking exactly like the Adi Granov designs.

The problem was that there was already a Nick Fury in the 616 comics. And it wasn't just having a half-black son, but that he happen to lose the exact same eye as Sam Fury, decides to shave his head and grow a beard like Sam Fury. It was blatantly an attempt to have Sam Fury in the 616, which wasn't necessary, there is already a Sam Fury in the Ultimate Universe. Also, the movies copied the comics armor design, not the other way around.

That's what I said if you reread my post.

It's fine if the movies copy or are dictated by the comic designs not the other way around.

I know Joss Whedon is the god of the geeks but rewriting several scenes in a short space of time worries me.

He's a pretty quick guy like that, it is what it is. They flew him in because they were stuck.

Plus, if they had to have him rewrite some scenes as they were shooting, then it's better that they did so than if they hadn't.

I would put Joss Whedon behind Chris Nolan if AoU is as good as the first Avengers.

Why?? Some re-writes happen during filming . The first Iron Man is an example. I don't think it's was a major script change or anything like WWZ.
