    Without the twist they would remove the social commentary from the movie and it would be another by the numbers hero vs bad guy story. So I'm glad how it turned out in the movie although its unfortunate he wasn't allowed to have a female villain since that sounds very interesting and considering he's saying Rebecca Hall's was reduced the I guess she was probably the main villain.

    Sucks that a bunch of whiny babies - who are retroactively "fans" of Mandarin - ruined the experience for him

    From a narrative perspective, I think that the Mandarin twist is actually quite clever (especially considering the social commentary). It worked well for the movie, in my honest opinion. I wasn't mad back in 2013, and I'm not mad now. I watched Iron Man 3 last week, and yeah ... I still really like the film. And I can see why general audiences loved it more than the fanboys did.

    I can also see how the "real" Mandarin would have worked in Iron Man 3 as well, considering the MCU had established that aliens exist (hence the alien tech for the ten rings). In that case, though, I would have dropped the Extremis plotline altogether.

    See I didn't find the alleged "commentary" to be all that clever. More like "he thinks that this is way more clever/deep than it actually is."

    Oh and as for the rings, yeah that totally cannot be explained. It's not like the very last film before IM3 had aliens as a major part of the plot, oh wait it did.

    At any rate, I do think that this is further evidence that Marvel Studios breaking away from Perlmutter is a good thing and will only help the films get even better from here on out. I've been holding out for Marvel to have a female villain in a film, which it seems like we'll be getting in Ragnorok next year, so I would've been cool with Maya Hansen being the main villain in IM3.
