    If what Feige and Black said about The Mandarin studying Sun Tzu, i.e. The art of War is true, then I can see Mandarin having a few tricks up his sleeve. I wouldn't worry too much about this latest info.

    1st tag is irrelevant to the discussion; the second is more relevant.

    I have a different outlook on your first point; I felt Bane was still interesting and well-characterized. You are right about Talia; I felt she was there to add to Bane's character.

    I just don't like the idea of villain whose reach knows no bounds being the puppet of some scientist. They could downplay that by establishing that Mandarin takes the blame for the events of the movie, while Killian and AIM salvage their reputation by helping those affected by Mandarin etc. Then you have AIM for whichever Phase of the MCU you like.

    Alternatively, I wouldn't mind Killian being played similar to Talia, but left live for further development.

    I think it will stay pretty true to the source. The first trailer I liked it dont get me wrong, but it just felt like IM3 but it didnt feel like extremis. The new trailer feels a lot more extremis to me.

    Have you read Extremis? If not go pick up a copy, or you can watch the digital comic on Netflix if you have it. If you don't want to be spoiled, wait for the movie.

    I personally think Extremis is the second best modern Iron Man arc. My first favorite being the five nightmares.

    If I didn't want to be spoiled, I wouldn't have asked.

    No, I haven't read the Extremis arc.

    quite offtopic but still IM3 related...

    DVDWorldUSA had the Phase One Boxset in stock since last week - anyone got it from them? http://dvdworldusa.com/shopexd.asp?id=88376 What we are looking for is that bonus disc with the Phase Two previews...

    My own thoughts on this:

    After doing a good job with Loki and the Red Skull, I can't see Marvel relegating the Mandarin to being nothing more than a chump. I'd like to think they would have more respect for the character than that. Making Killian the main villain would render all the build up in to the Mandarin in IM1 & 2 a waste. Someone mentioned earlier the analogy of Joker/Two-Face from TDK, which if they're doing something like that, I think could work.

    Sigourney Weaver is in a surprise cameo at the end where she is revealed to be the final boss. She gives a five minute monologue detailing her master plan.

    same thoughts here, although the start of phase 2 is rather important cuz if they don't make a legitimate move that meets fan expectations, phase 2 would be pretty much in trouble.
    considering marvel studious track, I am not that worried but this point in phase 2 is important.

    I don't have any specific information [BLACKOUT]but why would they even bother including her character if she weren't the "master mind" or at least in league with Killian?[/BLACKOUT]
