I still could see it happening, stranger things have been done in comic book movies. Plus Killing could've also used fire breath as a response after dodging IM's repulsion.

You know what would've been badass, if Killian shot flame in IM's face after catching his palm and stopping that last repulsor.

The single most unforgiveable thing I feel that was done with IM3 is that so far as I can tell everyone in that film seems to view the 10 rings as a new phenom in the life of Stark.



The 10 rings are responsible for the kidnapping of Stark in IM1.
They are the cause of him becoming Iron Man!

How can everyone forget this? Case in point when Tony and Rhodey are contemplating who this "new" threat is in the cafe.

This is the single most frustrating dismissal of continuity in all of the MCU and it could have easily been avoided, how does this get a pass?

Loki882 actually summarized my thoughts on this much better than I so I'll just quote him.

Various reviews and such have wondered if we are supposed to think Killian was behind the Ten Rings the whole time, or just stole their logo and such for the Mandarin videos. And the movie makes it pretty clear the Mandarin videos are a cover for the Extremis explosions that are accidents.

Killian *says* he wants to control both sides of the War on Terror, but in actually watching the movie, it looks more like he wants to cover for times Extremis doesn't work. And they don't even say *why* Extremis causes certain people to explode.

Did the movie say how many Extremis soldiers were working for Killian? It seemed the ones that exploded were ones that weren't directly "on the payroll."

This I can agree with.

In addition to that, I'd have preferred if there was a bit more reverence paid to Yinsen's memory for his role in Tony's escape.

No two ways about it - he is the reason that Tony was able to get out of there in any capacity, from putting the initial electro-magnet in his chest, to giving him the needed motivation to improvise the Mark I suit.

With that, a legitimate grudge between Tony & Killian could have been established, with a call-back to Yinsen towards the end. The cameo was a nice nod, but again, Tony has acted as if he doesn't even remember the guy since the moment he got out of the cave. This was one thing that I think Avengers did well, with the "His name was Phil" line for Coulson's 'death'. Either something along those lines or a photo of the guy (maybe a forgotten one from Bern that he dug up from some old boxes) somewhere in his basement would have been a nice touch.

Just watch IM3 again and then watch "Batman Forever", then tell me it's not the same f**king character (without Carrey's funny faces and the drag queen looks).

Ugly nutty professor is ignored by billonaire, he is mad about it, he uses his inventions to become a playboy billonaire as well, then flirts with the protagonist's redhead girlfriend (Kidman, Paltrow), and ultimately goes insane until he is stopped by our hero. Same story arc, same character. I expected that he would scream at the end: "I'm The Riddler!!!" instead of "I'm The Mandarin!!!". XD
I noticed that right after watching it.

He also destroyed the heroes lair/vehicles (in this case home and armours) and kidnaps the heroes girlfriend.

I'd say he was more similar to Syndrome than Riddler in Batman Forever.

It was a waste that they didn't used his Fire Breathing in the Final Battle.

Well Syndrome wanted to be the heroes sidekick and idolised the hero, and was a kid.

Killian and Riddler both idolised the man not the hero and wanted to share tech/work together. Both were adults who went from nerdy guys both with long hair to suave attractive guys with their own companies.

Well looks like my one big gripe about the film was addressed in the amazing All Hail the King one-shot!

See, I wasn't nuts, I knew something was amiss.
God, I love the MCU.

The movie was disappointing. Not only did they throw out all the interesting points of a classic Marvel villain they substituted a stock character we have seen many times before. To complete their deconstruction of marvel's enduring characters Iron Man III has Stark being freed from his nuclear heart which is the signature feature that binds him to the suit and his identity as Iron Man. The idea of the fatal flaw, the paradox of a strength which comes with a weakness is what makes heros memorable. You might as well have Aunt Mae finally have that ever-impending heart attack and die. By subsequently getting therapy to work through guilt and grief Peter Parker might finally liberate himself from his compulsion to risk his life for the sake of justice. It is like a surgeon finding a way to restore Daredevil's sight.

I liked the movie, but I think the ending could have been a little less emphatically "final", especially when we already know he's coming back for Avengers 2 and probably more Iron Man movies. It felt a little too obviously fake.

Hmm, I get the critique, but my takeaway wasn't a sense of finality with respect to Tony Stark's identity as Iron Man. What I got from the final post-battle sequences was:

Stark was in a paranoid and unsettled frame of mind when he created all those armors. Now that he was in a more peaceful place, mentally, he thought it would be best to start over. This involved destroying his multiple armors (which might or might not contain embedded abstractions of his manic state of mind), taking out the arc reactor in his chest and going back to basics: "I am Iron Man".

1. Too many comedic scenes that didn't feel very natural within the story, especially the scenes involving the little boy. The comedy wasn't as funny as what was in the avengers, or IM1, which made it worse. To contrast, CAP2 had much fewer outright comedic scenes, but still had a sense of humor through the chemistry of the characters that felt natural, and not like the movie is pausing the story for a gag.

2. The twist with the mandarin, I felt they kind of wasted his character and turned him into a comic relief that wasn't funny.

3. Apart from the air force one sequence, the action in this movie didn't really impress me. The final battle was too busy and CGI overload. Tony's armors came off as weak when they were destroyed so easily. I kind of wish that the extemis power that Killian and his henchmen had were more visually impressive.

Iron Man 3 was very funny, not as much the parts with the kid, but the ones with Killian's goons were a lot of fun.

So why does Tony have to recharge the suit by using a car battery when in the first film the suit is just powered up by the mini arc reactor in his chest? So then why can't Tony just power up his suit in film three like he did in film one? So again why does he have to recharge the suit in film three via a car battery?

In film one why didn't he just have the shrapnel removed from his chest like he did in film three? In the second movie the dangers of the palladium killing him could all have been avoided!

The answer to all of the above:

Because Shane Black co-plotted/wrote it.

That's why the film borrows heavily from other sources, indulges bad dialogue, has a clichéd kid sidekick, the idiotic "I'm Tony Stark, not Iron Man!" ending, etc.

The movie also gets a pass for so much time with Stark out of the armor while The Dark Knight Rises received criticisms like "would have been nice for Batman to be in his own movie," etc.

I think its universally known TDKR > IM3.

IM3 was just a huge let down to be the first movie since Avengers and to come with that performance? Cant believe TDW was actually worst than IM3. Shouldve just embraced the comics and did a proper Mandarin/Fing Fang Foom adventure in Asia vs Iron Man & War Machine.

Did enjoy the Xmas theme to it though.

Very weak end credit scene

Pepper receiving powers was dumb and Happy living was cheap.

The kid couldve atleast been someone from the comics like Cho.
