    Sounds pretty "Tony-centric." :cwink: Do you think that Tony Stark still thinks that he's "the only one in the world?" He's already seen that Thor and Hulk, in particular, can shoulder the burden of any future attacks on Earth. Would he really need to create an Iron Man proxy, when a more likely scenario sees him just improving on his *own* design, as he always has done?




    Already been addressed in a previous post. Under no circumstances was I saying *anywhere* that Iron Man isn't a hero; just that remote-controlling a drone isn't part of that definition.

    Creating an Iron Man proxy (army) is the precise design improvement he made in IM3... which he was driven to do even though Thor and Hulk existed, and in a way *because* Thor and Hulk existed.

    Speaking of, if we define heroism as putting one's life on the line, then Hulk is not a hero at all. Thor was only a hero for five seconds in his own film. A broader definition is needed or we need to take the word 'hero' out of superhero.

    Last night I had a dream that the whole aaron Taylor Johnson/ Elizabeth Olsen thing was just a rumour. Actually marvel cast some Disney kid as quicksilver and Emma Watson as wanda.

    Do whatever you like with this information :)

    Kevin Feige on Daredevil:

    Feige also comments on rumors of an eventual crossover with Fox's X-Men. Unsurprisingly there doesn't seem to be much happening there, but as a fan it's something he would like to see.

    He didn't create the "Iron Legion" to be proxies, though. He fully intended each suit of armor to be used to its intended purpose in any given situation --- i.e., if he needed to go into space for a mission, or go underwater, or be "invisible," etc. It was a desperation move to fire up the whole batch of them and have JARVIS r/c them into attacking the AIM base en masse.

    Either "Masters of Evil" **** just got a whole lot realer, and The Fandarins *will* get a second chance to see a "true" Ben Kingsley Mandarin; or somebody may just need to interrogate Trevor in prison regarding some things about AIM/Killian/Extremis. (Agents of SHIELD being a big likelihood in that second scenario.)

    Just give Daredevil a damn tv series and be done with it. His villains can be done pretty easily, as can his powers.

    I don't see why DD has to be a movie. He works better off as a TV series anyway. So while DD might not fit into their movie plans, they were saying they'd like to launch 4-5 new TV shows, and that's the place for him right there.

    Its possible this news of Kngsleys"Secret Marvel Prohect" is a bit of misdirection on Marvels part .
    We hear about it and automatically think Trevor Slatter is coming back.
    It is probably something else .

    I want Trevor back! I don't think I'd like the idea of him playing another character in the MCU.

    I pictured Kingsly in his Enders game make up and thought Karnak. But if really was the mandarin it'd be pretty awesome.

    The best twist for Ben Kingsley would be to do an Ed Norton in Primal Fear type twist. He could reveal that Trevor Slattery is the Mandarin all along and that the voice and imposing presence that Slattery was supposedly "pretending" to do when hired as an actor was in fact the real Mandarin personality and that the Slattery bad actor persona is the fake.

    That would severely bum me out, that would feel like a cop out. Trevor was great let him be.

    Kingsley as Mandarin was great. Trevor was embarrassing. And Adrich "Syndrome" Killian was almost as bad. He might have been a formidable villain, but he only turned out that way because a drunk Tony left him on a roof. Really?
