    I'm sorry but I gotta say the remainder of the action, besides the final fight. I don't want Shane Black and Drew Pearce screwing up another comic book movie ever again. Well not one that I would care about that is.

    1) Lack of Tony in his Iron Man suit

    2) That little kid got too much screen time

    3) No War Machine in the beginning

    4) Not enough Iron Patriot action

    5) Where are the easter eggs?

    6) Where is S.H.I.E.L.D. ?

    7) AIM is present in the movie but there is no reference to M.O.D.O.K.

    8) Where's Justin Hammer? He said he'll be seeing pepper and tony real soon?

    9) The Tony/Banner post-credits scene was boring and did not give any hint as to what's going to happen in the future

    10) They tried to hard with the humor

    11) Tony didn't get Extremis in him

    12) Mandarin wasn't the epic arch-nemesis as in the comics

    Stark should have gotten the extremis virus since his left over suits were lousy prototypes and should have killed Killian with it.

    1. The fact that pretty much every armor in this film was a prototype.

    2. Mark 42 not being "combat ready"

    3. Rhodey's part being smaller

    4. Too much Tony Stark not enough Iron Man

    5. Pepper defeating Killian, which makes the 2nd villain she's defeated for IM.

    Stan Lee's cameo in ASM was arguably the best he's ever had. And at least the ASM after credits scene hinted at SOMETHING about the future and brought some mystery.

    Hell yes it was!:highfive:

    Stan's cameo in "Thor" was pretty sweet as well, despite how short it was.

    I agree on all items accept for M.O.D.O.K. The film was cheesy enough as it was. :cmad:

    i don't think killan should have been in the 1999 scenes. they should have introduced killian through maya in the present, and he and tony to not have any background but through maya; so as not to confuse killian's motives.

    Okay, I admit IM3 post credit scene being worse than the ASM post credit scene is debatable but the ASM Stan Lee cameo is the best Stan Lee cameo by a mile I don't even think it's close.

    The post-credits scene. I don't like the joke ones. I don't mind humor in the actual movies, as long as I think it's funny. But I've come to expect something cool to excite for the next movie after the credits, not just "Oh, them wacky 'Vengers."

    Other than that the movie was great. Emotional, fun, hilarious, and it had William Sadler.

    Post credit scenes should be a 'reward' for sitting through those long arse credits and when I think about what I saw in the post credit scene in IM3 I could have been heading home a few minutes earlier and beating the crowds out of the cinema. A complete waste of my time.

    Agreed. if they wanted to make a quick joke it's okay but they could have put it after the montage, not after the +8 minute long credits.

    Damn, that's a good question. I never thought of that.

    That's what really bothers me. The Ten Rings were villains in the first and third films (technically, they also give Vanko the envelope) and they get no comeuppance. Even though the Mandarin was a complete joke and Killian is dead, the organization still exists and still committed acts of terror. Absolutely no comeuppance whatsoever.

    The guys in the first Iron Man film can just be thought of as some fringe group that fell for the Killian/Mandarin hype (assuming it builds up, peaking in Iron Man 3), and acted in their name without true association.

    I can't buy that the terrorists in the first film were a fringe group. That's cheap.

    The M.O.D.O.K. reference was ESSENTIAL!!!:cmad: I could've lived without a reference to the classic Beekeper suits if they'd just had 1 M.O.D.O.K. insertion. In a movie with no easter eggs for the comics fans, or expansion on exactly what A.I.M. is about, this would've gone a long way. Right now it feels like A.I.M. funneled all their efforts into Extremis and not much else.....

    could some explain this to me. if tony had all those extra suits ready for action then why didn't he call them for help when his house was blown up?

    how did they confuse Killian's motives? they showed a somewhat coherent line of thinking between '99 Killian and '13 Killian that explained why he would want to take the path he did. The main gripe might be that people could interpret Killian's choices and actions as just petty revenge instead of something grander
