    I'm saying that all we know about the mystery LEGO figure is that it's a pale green bad guy with veins. Radioactive Man is a *possibility,* but by no means the only possible fit for that description. I've already given several logical alternatives --- any Extremis-ized baddie, including Coldblood, Firepower, or Mandarin himself; and even The Leader, who was teased in TIH.

    I doubt either Radioactive Man or The Wasp are part of the equation.

    If, IF, that were to ever happen, I hope they recast for the role. That was hands down one of the most annoying characters in any comic film.

    im digging the darker grey tones in the mark 42. don't think it will look like that on film, but it helps break the armor up a bit more and is a nice contrast to the abundance of "gold"

    I'd say more like 65/50.

    Yea, me too. I'm really happy they're apparently going about this in a more subtle manner than they did in phase 1 with IM2, Thor, and Cap. I don't think there will be a central object like with the Tesseract and we won't be having SHIELD hijack the movies like before, with exception of Cap 2 I guess but it works there.

    That's a nice list but none of that counts as willful misdirection in the manner he's speaking and definitely not red herrings. For one thing, we know for a fact the character who eventually becomes Radioactive Man is in the movie. Bi-Beast, IronClad, and Morales, were not in their movies. I don't think Marvel has merchandising rights to FF but even if they do, Annihilus and Doom Bots are the same as the above. Once again, don't think Marvel has/had merchandising rights to Spider-Man in 2007, but even if they did, GG and Ock were villains in the previous movies...and GG did technically appear in SM3.

    The Avengers Movie line is a pretty stupid one to bring up since Thor and Hawkeye WERE in the the movie. Just because they're in different costumes doesn't count as misdirection. Skrulls are free game but again, they weren't confirmed in the same manner as RM is.

    You can say that Dr. Wu being in the movie is in itself misdirection (although Marvel said he wouldn't become Radioactive Man, which in itself could be misdirection) but use toy lines as precedent for red herrings when this particular character is in a completely different situation. The fact that a RM toy is being made and Marvel wouldn't let the toy maker know the name of the character just adds a bit of credence to the idea that Wu WILL become RM.

    Actually.... There's absolutely no concrete proof that he will ever be "radioactive man" or is in fact suppose to be. You're basing rumors as fact in which they are not


    Also marvel has very little say in who gets a figure. HASBRO however does.

    All marvel really does at getting involved with the figure aspect is filling in hasbro who might be a popular character in upcoming comics....

    Marvel doesn't tell them what figures to make

    No I'm not. You're taking it that way. Everything I posted was obviously speculation. Educated, but speculation none the less. That said, I'm entitled to post it without you attacking me because my opinion differs from your's.

    Which makes your entire argument about misdirection with toys wrong.

    Either way, the toy make specifically said Marvel prevented them from giving out the name. And we know this Dr. Wu character is based off of Chen Lu, who becomes RM. Putting that together with the toy news I and others can say RM has a good to decent chance of being in IM3. Attacking people for that with misplaced arguments is unneeded and ridiculous.

    Oh lordy ....... My whole point in the discussion was that THE TOYS MEAN NOTHING... You're free to believe what you want but I've stated several reasons why your logic is faulty regardless of if you call it missdirection or not.

    Yes. Marvel won't allow them to say a name of a spoiler character.... But there's still zero proof that Dr. Wu is based off of Lu . Just speculation because early reports said his name was Lu and would probably be RM that doesn't mean "he is"......

    Im not attacking you, your logic is just faulty.

    Also... I find it incredibly stupid that a C list villain like RM would be under such serious spoiler protection when firepower and coldblood arnt , nor is kurse and his twin in Thor, nor is Falcon, Crossbones , or the return of Zola in Cap 2......... RM is far from being an integral villain in the MU and zero reason to keep him of all people under wraps.

    You fooled me because all I said is that Marvel don't use toys to mislead people and you post a whole list about toys they've used to "mislead" people...a list that was, as you say, logically faulty. If you were trying to make the point that they don't matter then you went about it the wrong way, no offense. I agree, that we shouldn't put that much weight behind a toy listing but it was just a side note in the speculation that RM could be in the movie in the first place. I wasn't putting my entire faith behind it, but if I'm going with the assumption that RM is going to be in the movie I would obviously mention everything we know surrounding the character possibly appearing in the film.

    Either way, instead of constructively commenting on the outline I posted you chose to focus on a one line tidbit I mentioned at the end, which is disappointing to me.

    This is a good point. But it could be because RM IS technically a bit higher in relevance than them and could have a bigger role in the film than them as well. It could also possibly hint at Ant-Man and A2 stuff as well, obviously.

    ..... You said "marvel doesn't misslead people with toys" as a reasoning of proof of how this mysterious toy is RM and because its RM its in the movie.... -__-

    I corrected you. Now lets move along.

    You're completely taking what I said out of context. cherokeesam used the idea of Marvel misleading people and using red herrings as reasoning for why RM is likely a red herring, and I replied that Marvel does not do that and mentioned the toy line because that would have to be the red herring/misdirection he is referring to. That does not equate to me using it as prime reasoning for RM being in the movie. You did not correct me, I'm guessing you just didn't read the entire conversation and posted that list as a result.

    I would tend to agree but posting narcissistic things like

    makes it difficult.

    Because I didn't understand where you were coming from until I realized you didn't read the conversation and if you're going to reply to me with a long list of why I am supposedly wrong obviously I would refute it. :/

    Yes, this has dissolved into meaningless argument unfortunately.

    Not sure if I'm digging War Machine's mohawk/receding hairline thing he's got going on. He's looking kind of sickly.

    Since she'll be in Phase 3, I doubt Wasp too.

    i don't know.. i still think while it's the Phase 3 "kick-off" it will also feel like an epilogue. I wouldnt be shocked if Wasp and Hank appear in Avengers 2... with there origin in Ant-Man. It would be a great ride for them to piggy-back off avengers to get more people interested.

    Personally I'm thinking we won't see Ant-man (or possibly Wasp) in Avengers 2 if Ant-man is meant for phase 3. Maybe we'll see people like Black Panther or Captain Marvel instead.
