Then again, he was dying in IM2, so drinking your worries away there was understandable too.

Yeah, it worked then too, I just think it would have been better if they'd held back. Personally if the shit from Avengers ever happened IRL, I'd be drunk as hell...

Now that I think about it...IM2 overall would have worked much better AFTER Avengers. Tony's PTSD combined with him dying and drunk, the government going after his suit, and an alien invasion would have all complimented each other, making Tony and Rhodey's fight all the more poignant. And Tony's "rebirth" all the more powerful

For those with issues with the Mandarin,
Spoiler


Or at least this is my interpretation.

That's 100% correct. I'm surprised people are taking it literally, he's obviously not "The Mandarin."

I haven't actually seen it yet, but from the first time I heard about the complaints about Mandarin this is what I thought.

Not at all, guy's a great actor he's just not picky about his roles at all. He will be in some of the absolute shittiest shit ever just for a paycheck. Especially over the past 10 years or so. It's kind of ridiculous when you look at his IMDB and just see terrible things.

I actually compared those two movies as well oddly enough, but in a different way.

Both movies had amazing trailers that hyped me up, but the actual movies ended up being disappointing and nothing like the trailers.


There was an amazing Green Lantern trailer that I missed?

It wasn't the worst thing ever, but it was very disappointing.

Every time he showed up in the movie he got his ass kicked. Was pretty lame.

So do you think this would have been a better movie without Extremis or Killian and just the Manderian?

I think Manderian breaking Hammer out of jail and having them work together to get revenge against Stark would have made a better story.

Mandarin

And any other script would have made this better.

I think they should have dropped Mandarin altogether. Just make Killian a MODOK like character, some super genius rival to stark. Like Hammer, but competent this time. Even do a corporate angle where he puts stark out of business and ruins him.

I think they should have made The Mandarin the main bad guy and made him act like he does in the trailers. They didn't need to add the rings and whatever, he could have just be a really smart guy out to get Tony.

If they really wanted him to be a modern terrorist type of guy he could have beheaded pepperpots

I don't know why cancerman is posting horrific pictures of people dying in a train but I guess if thats how he views ironman as a franchise who jumped the rails into the water that's his opinion and one I respect.

Is a civil war movie even possible? Are the main characters in the comic even under one umbrella?
