    What do War Machine do in this movie? Fight? Any tag team action with Iron Man?

    Is Stephanie Szostak the Wasp or the Scarlet Witch?

    Not true.
    But if you look real close at the reflection in her eye in the clip from the trailer, you can see a mystery villain whose identity I am not at liberty to divulge, for fear of Marvel Snipers :o

    (but here's a hint: his name rhymes with "Park Slide") :oldrazz:

    I think they're just trying to evoke the look of a militant living on the fringe of society without a lot of money. Kind of like how you would see Cossack rebels fighting against the Soviet Union wearing T-shirts with soviet logos simply because they were the clothes they could get their hands on. He's wearing a novelty T-shirt because it's clothing he's got access to. I think that'll be the reason.

    One nitpick that's been gnawing at me.

    Is Mandarin illiterate, or are the trailer editors just doing awkward splicing?

    "Heroes...there is no such thing."

    No, Mandy. There ARE no such things. ThingS.

    Is his English really that bad? I don't think so. I'm thinking this now famous quote is just bad splicing for the trailer. Either that, or imma hafta go Grammar Nazi upside Mandy's head

    Are people of Asian descent who lean English illiterate? No of course not, but they can lean the language, but it's harder to lean the dialect.

    There's alot of people I work with who have H1B visas that know the language, but don't have the dialect perfected and you have to interpret what they are trying to say. That doesn't make them illiterate.

    That has nothing to do with illiteracy. That's not even particularly bad english. There are native english speakers who talk that way from time to time.

    A little late to be responding to this but Szostak is Bethany Cabe. I don't know why they're keeping that a secret. Maybe they just forgot to announce it and nobody has cared enough to ask her.

    Exactly.

    Far from a credible source.

    Someone like Roger Wardell is probably more credible.

    Is Wardell the guy who leaks BS? The name sounds familiar; I think he's the one who said Fin-Fang-Foom is in the movie.

    Would be cool if he's in the Movie and looked exactly like this. Btw, did they ever finish the comic?

    What is that?! The Hip Hop version of the Mandarian? Marvel thinks it can get away with anything. That poster is horrible yet supremely funny at the same time.
