    In general I wouldn't say it is, but it's pretty specific in its implication during this conversation. And the spoiler-averse won't like it, lol

    No prob.

    Basically, what I was saying is that that is is likely false considering the spoilers that leaked about a month ago (after the Super Bowl spoilers, which have since been debunked by the trailer itself) have been, so far, on the up and up with other sources coming out with similar to exact info as was in that leak.

    We all know that was bogus because he plays the Mandarin.

    They knew exactly jack **** at the time. So they couldn't really be sure if he played the main villain or not because they didn't know who he played whatsoever.

    It says in that article that he "might" be playing the Mandarin, it's not like they were saying he wouldn't play him

    The way they handled it is pretty interesting if you think about it. Cast Ben Kingsley as Iron Man's longest-lasting foe from the comics. Then cast Guy Pearce as a guy who offed himself at the beginning of the single issue he appeared in. Which one are people gonna focus on, which one are people gonna assume the movie is structured around? Then build the marketing campaign around that same expectation, probably the first half of the movie, too, before showing your hand.

    Good point. But honestly, at the very least, I would see Killian being like Dent in TDK in that, in the end of the movie, Dent was more important in finding/stopping then Joker was.

    The twist itself makes sense, but its the tiny other details they said that makes it seem like a farce.

    um, huh? We saw all of seven of the armors, and most of those there we've seen in the Hasbro toy promotion. We can't say what MOST of the armors look like, which is what the spoiler said.

    And we already knew there were variations based on the armor spoiler from the production guide, assuming it's true.

    Which three? They all match up with what we saw in the trailer. I just explained the 40 armors bit, we haven't actually seen more than 7 of them. Pepper does don an armor Tony creates for her so she can escape an attack, and I have no idea what the third would be.

    This.

    I HIGHLY doubt that's true.

    Even the toys, for crying out loud, show that Tony fights Mandarin himself at some point.

    Well...

    It does say that Mandarin dies at some point. I assume he doesn't keel over of a heart attack and that Tony is most likely involved. That still allows for Killian to be the main villain.

    Trust me, I don't want this to be true at all, but the LEGO toys don't disprove it. If anything, they make the spoiler seem closer to the truth since Extremis Killian is shown.

    If it is true...

    [BLACKOUT]Why not just give Mandarin alien tech in his rings to make him a super badass? I mean seriously... this hyper-realism stuff is getting annoying.[/BLACKOUT]

    thats not a huge spoiler....
    was expecting something else...
    hmm this doesn't sound right, the directors wouldn't want the mandarin to be useless in the movie.

    Hey there is that one shot from the trailer of what looks like Iron Man fighting a dude without any armor or anything. Looks like it could be Pearce.

    This.

    Mandarin is the big Iron Man villain they have been building to since the first movie, which featured the Ten Rings then.

    I have a very hard time believing they would devalue him like this. Especially in favor of a character such as Killian.

    But if that's what they did, it's going to piss a whole lot of people off and they had to know that going in. It's not the kind of "twist" ending that leaves people thrilled, but rather the kind that leaves them disappointed and confused as to why the writers would do something so lame. [e.g., [BLACKOUT]Bane being Talia's lackey in TDKR[/BLACKOUT].]
