 Any villian other tha Mandarin will be a huge disappointment! They've already hinted around to the Ten Rings from the first two films, to not see the pay off of that would be a monumental mistake on the part of Marvel.

Chris Evans was JOKING, come on GET IT!

I think that WAS the Mandarin, the Organization The Ten Rings is IN PLACE of Mandarin...

Took me a few minutes to figure what Flinshady was going on about...  "Silly bugger Heath, mexican wrestler, yadayadayada...", ah, I got it, Shumakers Batman & Robin vs Nolan's Dark Knight Rises.  Now if only I can figure out what they have to do with Iron Man 3.

Point of clarity though, Nolan's Bane isn't Shumaker's Bane.  Shumaker's Bane (played by the late Jeep Swenson, not Mexican) was basically Solomon Grundy in Banes suit.  Shumaker was not a Batman reader and wasn't too concerned with comics-to-movie continuity.  Nolan's Bane will be MUCH closer to the comics Bane, not quite as large but considerably smarter.  Also I'm pretty sure calling Heath Ledger a "silly bugger" will get you tracked down and hit by about a million Heath fans.

As for Iron Man 3, producers please listen to the fans: MANDARIN!  I remember hearing that Favreau didn't want Mandarin because he didn't want magic involved in the IM movies (at which point a billion fans pointed out that the rings weren't magic.  But hey, even if the rings were magic I want to see him in.  Starks discomfort with the mystic arts would be a good subplot.  I'd also like to see them add a bit of Demon in a Bottle to the mix.

Seriously, Madarin's Rings of Power are NOT magic!  They are Mulkan Alien Tech that he found and stole then modified it to his needs and body.

Read this.  

"These rings are Makluan (a race of dragonlike aliens) technology and were apparently used to power a ship Mandarin found crashed. The rings have altered their wearers to be superhuman, most notably the hands of the Mandarin becoming dragonlike. Mandarin has a strong link to his rings, and is aware of where they are and if they are used if he is not wearing them. He can attempt to mentally take over control of anyone who attempts to use them, as the Yellow Claw found out after attempting to steal them."

Favreau aparently did not actually read the comics other wise he would have known that the Rings of Power are alien in nature and NOT MAGIC.  Mandarin is a tech genius just like Tony Stark.  He is a matial arts master and if Tony was not wearing the Iron Man suit Mandarin would break him like a punk ass bitch.  Then he is so smart he found alien tach and not only mastered it but bent it to his will.  He can live for an indefinite anount of time without food or sleep as he creates his own lifeofrce though his Chi.  Mandarin is a pure bad ass.

 Yeah you'll probably right FerretJohn, I meant it in the nicest possible way, I was upset by his untimely demise also. I can see you point about Bane, I hope you are right.

"Mandarin was in drafts right up until the [first] movie got green lit," Favreau revealed of his plans to include the infamous Asian warlord in his films. "It was in the first film and then Mandarin, who's a famous villain, we had references to in the second film. When I first came to Comic-Con with 'Iron Man,' before we had started filming or cast Robert [Downey Jr.], I had mentioned that 'The Avengers' would be the only logical third film,"

John Favreau.

I wonder why they exed Mandarin.  He is a great character, much interesting than more than Stane.  He is not magic and uses science like Tony.  He fits perfectly well into Favreau's "realistic" Marvel Universe.  My money is on pressure from some where in the studio telling to ex the idea because of Politcally Correct resasons.  Asshats.

FerretJohn 9/24/2011 9:57:18 AM

Axia, maybe it's because he uses Alien science which isn't that far from magic.  Favreau was looking for more "realistic" Earth-bound tech.

ElBaz13 9/25/2011 10:51:22 AM

Since there will be alien science introduced to the "real world" Iron Man/Tony Stark in the upcoming Avengers, then I don't see a problem of them introducing alien science in Iron Man 3.

Agree. Mandarin all the way. As for Jet Li, would be great but remember when he was cast in another #3 of a successful franchise? The Mummy. The Mummy 3 had potential but was overall terrible.
