    All aboard the spoiler train - I'll get that PM if anyone is willing please. Although I don't see why it isn't just posted in spoiler tags.

    I agree. I like to know some things about the movie I'm going to see, but I would still like to be largely surprised.

    With that said I should probably make good on my earlier claim of giving this section a rest until I've seen the movie. lol

    I've always been very pro-spolier. I've never found that knowledge of what transpires in a movie actually ruins the experience of watching that movie for me. If anything, I enjoy seeing how the movie arrives at the spoilers that I know about.

    With this in mind - what's this new spoiler?

    If the spoiler is true, I will owe one particular poster an apology, because they totally called it.

    Still, I'm not a fan of it at all on the surface. I'll wait to see how it actually plays out in the movie, but the concept itself is pretty lame.

    IF THIS IS TRUE (<==big IF), then this is a super spoiler. Consider yourself warned.

    Last chance...
    This is what I got from Chewy, who I think got it from the boxoffice.com site: For a while now we've known that Mandarin's rings aren't alien, and don't have any powers. Black and Feige and co have described him as this ex-military guy who went a nuts along the way, is obsessed with Sun Tzu, and crafted the Mandarin persona. So the question we've all been asking is: If Ben Kingsley's Mandarin is the villain of the movie, and he doesn't have any powers, how do you stage a big third act with a bunch of suits of armor around that?

    And the answer is apparent that he isn't, and you don't. Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian is the villain, was from the beginning. He uses the Mandarin as his mouthpiece/symbol/distraction, and Mandarin dies during the movie.

    So that's the spoiler, and it makes sense with what we know - Killian funnels out the Extremis soldiers, and the third act will presumably be Tony and Rhodey and all those suits versus Killian and his soldiers in that warehouse. And you can have a third act that involves the big villain in the big fight, as Killian will presumably inject himself with it too.

    Not surprised by those spoilers at all. I kinda guessed that after the 2nd trailer.

    In hindsight, I guess the writing was on the wall.

    I still don't like the writing. I'm trying to keep an open mind about it though.

    Cheers Crimson. Really nothing to shocking. If that happens so be it, if not I'll be surprised. After all these films aren't a direct representation of the comics they are a interpretation of the comics. I like these fresh new ways that they interpret characters and story arcs.
