Default Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 1

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:



This weekend, I have the chance to watch the John Carpenter classic, Big Trouble in Little China, again. I can say that I understand what fans were hoping for in the third Iron Man film. However, I feel that if they had pursued that angle, it would have compromised the structure of this wave of the MCU. The first wave focused on magic as the binding plot device: namely, the mechanization and weaponization of a magic object: the Tesseract. Now, there is usually a film that falls outside of this cycle: Incredible Hulk had nothing to do with Asgardian magic. Hence,I suspect Thor: TDW is going to be the outlier of this cycle. From Iron Man 3 has shown, the emphasis has been on technology and technoterrorism, will undoubtedly play a part in the Winter Soldier (Bucky's surgeries/upgrades, and possible presence of AIM/HYDRA,) with GOTG playing up the aspect with the presumed space opera aspects. When Ultron's presence in TA is considered, narrative lines can be drawn in ink and some in pencil, until new information is supplied. So, having the Mandarin resemble his Big Trouble.. Cinematic Counterpart would mean that one of the cogs in the machine that is Wave 2 would not be in alignment with the others. With Thor pursuing a different angle, the MCU would not have as many direct narrative threads as it had in the previous cycle. Hence, the transferrance of the mysticism to technology was crucial, as I can imagine Ultron using the bio-tech in TA 2 like he did in Mighty Avengers, VOl 2, when he re-mapped Tony's genetic code.
