Caveman but the rings ain't magic anyway, they're alien tech.

And by sticking with a "science" explanation for magic doesn't detract from anything IMO. Loki was still doing his usual tricks. And when Dr. Strange makes it on-screen they can easily do the same thing making the astral plane just another dimension with a pseudo-scientific explanation, it doesn't or shouldn't hamper anything.

Oh and yeah maybe we should stop whining about whiners and whiners about whinees and whinos :)

 

But first make sure you're not living in a glass house, especially if you're one always saying pretty similar things and trying to prove your case by calling others "fucktards" when you disagree with them

At least I do not say they are "whining". It is NOT whining to disagree. I will stop being so insulting if people stop calling people whiners for being pissed about things that they hate on. People here disagree about all kinds of stuff.

How many people here HATE the new Superman? Yeah, I thought so. Some of us like the new Supes, some of are indifferent, some of us hate it. I do not call them "whiners". That is not cool and it is demeaning.

Axia, I understand perfectly where you're coming from. Like I said I was kind of hoping the Mandarian was going to be a terrorist who got ahold of some of the leftover alien tech from the Avengers invasion. But Shane Black had a different idea which was very ShaneBlacky. Feige thought it over and decided to give it a try. It was a gamble to put it in front of the fans but he probably knew it wouldn't matter to the general public sense they had no idea who the Mandarian was. But it worked out for them. I wouldn't have done it but it was a creative decision. 

And I agree with you that while this worked out I would hope they wouldn't short-change a villain or hero again with an odd twist. There is plenty of good stuff in the original stories that you don't need to throw a loop into the mix.

I'm surprised Feige gave into Shane Black. Usually Marvel Studios are very protective of their characters after being butchered by Sony and Fox.

It also probably had something to do with RDJ. RDJ and Black are tight.

Being a Marvel purist, I hated the twist. But at the same time, it was f.ucking funny thanks to Sir Ben and RDJ in the reveal scene.

 I think people need to come to terms with the fact that we are not going to get movies based on the comics.  It's not going to happen because it won't sell the tickets.  (See: Green Lantern, Fantastic 4, Dare Devil...)  Even X-Men started strong with an alomost realistic take on the franchise.  As they went deeper to the comic core, it started faltering.

Anyway, what they are doing is smart.  It may not be what comic fans want, but it's what hte general public is accepting and what is selling the tickets.  

The real test, I think, is going to be Guardians.. That will be really hard for everyday folks to swallow, but I think they are hoping to ease everyone into it with Avengers 2...

Really makabriel? See Iron Man 1 and 2. Also, see Thor, Captain America, The Hulk(all of them even the Ang Lee one), and the Avengers.
What was that again?

@monkeyfoot: Thus Shane Black was the wrong choice for the director. They should have gone with another director. i also think what Elbaz said is correct in saying that it was most likely pressure from RDJ. Him and Black are tight and RDJ most likely got him the job.

Iron Man 3 craps all over 40 years of comics and nobody cares, Superman kills a mass murdering super human and everyone loses their minds

SarcasticCaveman 10/23/2013 10:59:48 AM

 The only thing I hated about Iron Man 3 was the post credits scene.  Iron Man introduced Nick Fury.  The Incredible Hulk had a cameo from RDJ (not post credits, but still a nice surprise).  Iron Man had Coulson's team investigating Mjolnir.  Thor had the scene with Loki.  Avengers had Thanos and the hilarious shwarma scene.  The shwarma scene worked for me because it was the end of a battle and the end of a phase of movies.  I just wish IM3 had some sort of tie in to the next or another movie instead of Stark and Banner conversating.  Yawn.

I would have loved if the Stark/Banner kibizting had led to a Marvel Two In One movie with the both of them together, maybe taking on the Leader. The Hulk hasn't been successful on his own so that would have been perfect.
