Erskine created the SS formula, but Stark built the vita-ray machine. The two had to work together. Ross was able to sythesize something close to the formula, but it didn't work quite right. Banner thought gamma rays could substitute for the vita rays, he was very wrong (or very right). The formula that worked on Blonsky was not stable, he sought the gamma radiation to match banner, and went very wrong. Extremis in the comic is being formulated as a new Super Soldier syrum.

No way is that a UN helmet. Reminds me of peoply denying the "black suit" spidey pictures when they came out, saying it was just darkly lit.

Fair points on the Cap connection; but why on earth would it be a WWII helmet? That hasn't been seen in 70 years. Where and how would Mandarin have gotten his hands on it, and why?

He's obviously a collector of antiquities from the picture. Ancient Chinese art and such. Cap hasn't been seen in 70 years, but that didn't mean his legend dies, like Coulson collecting Captain America trading cards or Tony saying, "that's the guy my dad wouldn't shut up about?"

Mandarin is clearly a guy who wants to destroy people idolizing heroes, which is why Stark is his primary target.

There's a shield in Iron Man's workshop in the background when he's getting his mark 3 armor removed after he went to the Middle East.

The poster looks great, the best one they have released so far.

Someone like Roger Wardell is probably more credible.
Um, sorry, but no. Everything that was posted in that thread matches what the guy here posted and seems very much possible and more than credible. You should read something before saying how credible it is. Just because it's on 4chan does not make it invalid.

Then explain why it is an N preceded by another letter which could be U on the helmet. A simple Google search will show you a bunch of UN helmets that don't have the UN on the side. It's not Cap's helmet.

And even then, he's usually the best part of those movies.

Okay.
Not saying you're wrong. It's a good theory, and you very well may be right. I just want to get a better look at that helmet (and whatever the dark blue thing is on the wall....looks too big to be a helmet) in a hi-res version of the poster; and I'd like to find out how Mandarin supposedly got hold of Cap's helmet before I fully buy into this theory.

So far, much of it is stuff no one can confirm yet.

However, he has said alot things that have been proven true.

These include Falcon, Black Widow, and Crossbones being in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as when those two were announced for the film.

Also he leaked Surtur's presence in Thor: TDW, Killian's role in IM3, and that Coulson was not done for in the MCU, alluding to his return beginning in the S.H.I.E.L.D. tv show as well as future movies, as well as Anna Kendrick's candidacy for Sharon Carter

So yeah, he's been credible so far, it's just that people have gotten the idea he's a fraud.

I think Marvel put the hammer down on him though as he hasn't posted anything since the beginning of December.
Wardell also mentioned that Doctor Strange would be in the MCU, though he said it would be in Thor:TDW. And he mentioned that Marvel was after Viggo Mortensen for a role, which was later confirmed by Victoria Alonso in an interview with Collider. I can't say he's an oracle, but he's been onto some things well before the fansites have gotten wind of them. A big point in Wardell's favor is that he never trolled any website or touted his info; people just picked up on his Twitter account.

Those are Tony's glasses the Mandarin is wearing. I guess he keeps trophies from his conquests, which explains his mix of styles. Very nice touch by Marvel.
