    Only because Talia was awful and did nothing. If they develop Killian as a total badass and build the film around him, instead of shoehorning him in, then it'll work quite nicely

    And I don't think it means Mandarin can't be interesting and well characterized on his own terms. But it's definitely not the Mandarin people were expecting.

    Trying on a model of the suit or some AR mirror (the latter would be disappointing...)

    Apology accepted. ;)

    I've never considered the concept lame, though, because
    I believe AIM is going to play a much larger role in the Phase II movies. Mandarin and his Ten Rings organization were intended to just provide a backdrop enemy group for the Iron Man "trilogy," so it was unlikely that Ben Kingsley was hired for more than one film. Remember, MCU Iron Man has a lethal tendency to kill off his villains, except for Justin Hammer. AIM, on the other hand, will likely show up again in Cap's movie, maybe even Thor TDW during the Midgard sequences, and possibly might even play a role in TA2.

    Also, a few bits of new scenes in that Chinese trailer today. The shot of Rhodey in civvies on the ground looking up at the sky
    confirms what a lot of us already suspected --- someone else is wearing the Iron Patriot armor aboard AF1. Jack Taggert, most likely.

    lmao! Nah, it's more like John Blake IMO, because people wanted to see Robin so they gave Robin John Blake. Now in IM people wanted to see the Mandarin so we got him but not the main villain.

    oh disregard my last post, I know what you mean

    he wears that same shirt in the dock battle so I'm wondering if that happens a different day because the scene where rhodey looks up might not even relate to the AF1 scene

    Don't get cocky! You also said Thor:TDW was about Ego, the living planet. :jedi

    Part of me finds this news lame. But the other part of me is thrilled that Guy Pearce's talents won't be wasted.

    Its a mocap thing.

    You wear a mocap suit and a CG model of the armor mimics your movements.

    How so?
    He's the leader of the ten rings organization, he's got his followers, he has the full attention of the US Government (and Tony, for at least the first half of the movie, probably more). Just because it turns out Killian is behind all of the Extremis stuff and the actual big bad doesn't mean Mandarin won't have stuff to do. Just not super powered ring stuff :hehe:

    The spoiler info is not that surprising to me. But I think there will be a third villain revealed, and if you've read the Extremis comic, you should know who I am talking about.

    Exactly.

    However, here's the thing.

    The rumor with twist says that
    Killian is the main villain, and Mandarin is not,

    where as the second and, yet to be debunked, /co/ rumor indicates

    That Mandarin is the main villain. However, as far as Extremis is concerned, Killian is the big threat.
