I agree. We need an epic final act with Mandarin. Nothing else would do IMO.

Mandarin is a must for the next one. And after seeing the new Thor trailer for the 110th time, seeing how they're adding big fantasical creatures in the MCU Fin Fang Foom should also be in the movie. Not the talking purple underwear wearing version but a creature under Mandari's control.

I'm not as sure about Fin Fang Foom. Each individual movie has its own feel to it. Not sure the big mythical beasts would work in the IM films, even if its in Thor.

Sure they will come together in Avengers, but each character still has its own paradigm as well.

I would love it for the record. Just not sure if it would work or not.

Which begs another question:

Which version of the 10 rings do we get? The magic or the advanced tech? Could they be Asgardian tech in the movieverse?

Asgardian tech woudl be a cool twist to it, but if I had to choose magic or advanced i'd choose magic.

Magic vs Technology was one of the cool themes of Iron Man vs Mandarin. I really like the idea.


I'm not really sure that Magic would work for the filmverse though. They have even went so far as to make the magic/science blend in Thor. They are shying away from flat out Magic so far. It only get worse in a tech based paradigm like the IM movies.

I think if we see the Rings as they are in the comics, then they will be advanced tech of some kind. With the Infinity Gauntlet and Cosmic Cube in the Marvelverse its hard to tell, but both seem to be based in "Tech" even if its Asgardian or alien tech.

Mandarin's rings have never been magic they've always been alien tech. They need to go with tech for the rings.

Hmmm.

I know they have been alien tech for a long time but I thought that they were magic for awhile when he was first created but was retconed later.

Doesn't Mandarin use Magic? I know i've seen that.

They've been alien tech since Tales of Suspense #62 (1965).

But yeah, ever the opportunist, he dabbles in whatever he can get his hands into, including magic.

I suppose we've already seen which rings they will use: neither tech nor magic but metaphorical rings

what I meant was, the Ten Rings as a terrorist organisation (or, probably organisations) are his metaphorical rings. He may have real rings as well, but I suppose they are just jewelery. Just like Hammers or Stanes rings.

While Hammer's and Stane's rings are just to show they're part of his organization, Mandarin's rings should be made into weapons. Otherwise that will take away from his moveset, imagine Spider-Man not shooting webs from his wrists be it mechanical or organic.

The Iron Man series is not one arcing story like LOTR was, so it's not the same thing at all. IM3 won't suck just because Favs is gone. That's like saying replacing Bond directors dooms the story. All the films are connected, but self contained (with few over-arcing elements). It doesn't matter as much.

I agree, but we were talking about the TITLES. not the directors or the story or an overall arc. THE T I T L E S!

I would love to finally see Mandarin. I don't think we need another baddie in a suit. It just seems like it's repetitive at this point. People would be like , "again? Someone stole his tech? That's the day you fire your security."

When he says no more crossovers after Avengers I hope he means that there will be no more crossovers that are automatically expected to happen. I still like that they now have the freedom to do crossovers if it is applicable to the current film but they by no means should ever get to the state where they are expected to happen as a matter of course. They should happen when it makes sense for them to happen, and no other way than that.

There may be references In dialogue to The Avengers but none of them
will be showing up In Iron Man 3.Shield may still be a pressence and
Nick Fury(Samuel L Jackson has 5 more films he Is committed to) and Maria
Hill(Cobie Smolders has 8 more films she Is commited to after her dedut In
The Avengers) may show up with the esponage angle.With talk of War Machine spinoff he might not even show up In Iron Man 3 although we might
see Don Chedale simply as James rhodes and not War Machine In Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 may be last solo Iron man film.If Marvel/disney wants to throw a lot of money at Robert Downey JR to play Iron Man again It will likely be
for Avengers sequels.

Yeah, dialogue references is ok and probably for the best as well. Iron Man still exists in a world with other superheroes & villains even after the Avengers film is over. Oh and I doubt very much there will be any LAST Iron Man solo film. He'll go on a shelf for a while after #3 to get some breathing room(maybe another TV cartoon series or even a live action series might happen in this interval) but make no mistake, the character will be making solo films for as long as Spider-man or Batman or Superman will be making them.....indefinitely.

Marvel could go the james Bond route and simply recast Iron Man If they don't want to try to throw money at Downey for Avengers sequels.I really hope marvel studios goes
the classic Bond way of recasting Instead of rebooting consently.I Understand rebooting
characters that have been done by other studios but reboots are going on way too much
and they could simply continue with recasting.
