^Better fix that hotlinked pic before the mods see it.
NO more armoured villains, kthxbye!
^And every time I hear people say that I'll just reply, "Then no more gang-leader/crime boss-with-weirdo-issues villains in the next Batman film; and no more animal-based, superpowered thugs in the next Spider-Man movie; and no more mutant villains in the next X-men movie!"
Iron Man fights other guys in battle suits. They're like 75% of his rogue's gallery. Accept it.
Kedrell speaketh the truth.
I wonder what the chances of seeing Titanium Man in an Iron Man movie are? Since we've already gotten Iron Monger, with it looking like we'll get Crimson Dynamo in IM2, I wonder if Favreau and co. will be interested in using a third armored villain down the line?
If that happens, then The Living Lasers always in with a shout.
Maybe they should just make the Avengers movie instead of a sequel,since Iron Man doesn't have any original villains that moviegoers will like...
^I highly doubt the last part of that statement.
It is a pretty presumptious and sweeping statement.
Mandarin, Crimson Dynamo, Titanium Man, Ultimo, Madame Mask, Whiplash etc. Not to mention the potential of A.I.M. and M.O.D.O.K.
All of whom could be utilised to be a great villain in a future IM movie.
Don't forget Fin Fang Foom!t:
In my opinion if they were to ever use a wacked out character like M.O.D.O.K. then I see no reason why they couldn't use a mystical dragon.
Hell, I'm even for the idea of it being a robotic dragon the Mandarin in a possible third uses as some sort of protector/bodyguard.
Why not have them both in it? One opponent for Iron Man, and one for Warmachine.
it's gonna turn into Spider-Man 3....
I'd also love for them to add in Ultimo, maybe not make him 100 feet tall like in the comics, but maybe 20-25 feet like in M:UA.
Also, besides this I really don't think Iron Man vs Iron Monger is enough. I mean, I personally liked that fight, but a prolonged aerial battle between Iron Man and an armored foe needs to happen. The concept has not yet been exhausted in terms of action.
He'd be a good choice. On that note, regarding IM3 villains, I wouldn't mind seeing guys like the Living Laser, Blizzard, Whiplash, Firebrand, and Unicorn appear as minions of the Mandarin in the same vein as the 90's cartoon. Maybe with the Titanium Man and Madame Masque (depending on Black Widow's role in IM2) too.
Personally, I'd prefer if they used Ultimo instead of Fin Fang Foom, if they went in the direction of the Mandarin having an oversized pet. A 30 foot tall robot would be a lot easier to accept than a dragon.
'A 30 foot tall robot would be a lot easier to accept than a dragon'.
That's so sig worthy for it's irony it's untrue.
All I was trying to say is that I don't think a dragon would fit in an Iron Man movie. And given the technology-theme of the character, I think a robot of some sort would be better. And I'll admit that is still pushing the boundaries.
Though honestly, I would prefer if neither one appeared. I'm just saying that if one of them had too...
How about a 30 foot tall robotic dragon?
Crimson Dynamo gets my vote, I'm a lot more familiar with him than Titanium Man and TM's name would be just too corny for a movie.
I know; It was just a bit of friendly ribbing.
What you say makes sense.
The thing is though, the IM films are gonna have to deal with the magical aspect at some point - if not with the Mandarin, certainly with the apparent inclusion of Thor as a cameo and definately with IM being in the Avengers.
