 Wow. Was hoping for better as I've voiced on many occassions and then it seemed to be moving in a very good Extremis way and now this? I don't know too much about this character but lets just hope he doesn't end up with a circle in his chest too.

I was hoping for Magneto because we really haven't seen him much in any comic book movies; Zod, Khan, Joker, Lex Luthor and Darth Vader would work too.

I hope they pay some sort of homage to Fin Fang Foom; one of the best IM villains who might not work in a movie, but needs to get some props just for being awesome.  I would have chosen The Controller or Ultimo over Coldblood which is kind of a head scratcher to me.  Heck, I'd rather see Madame Masque over Coldblood.

Whiplash was very lame as presented in IM2.  I don't know why they just didn't go with Crimson Dynamo or Titanium Man.  Stop screwing around here; just give us Extremis, Mandarin, and some solid Mandarin minions.

DarthBob-We won't see Magneto with the Avengers anytime soon until Fox gets their filthy mits off our Xmen Franchise.

I hope Wiseguy is right about Thanos appearing in Thor 2 and i think he is. That would be so freaking awesome along with the continuation of the Thor/Loki story, Odin(REALLY hoping Hopkins returns), and the other Asgardians. It makes me look forward to Thor 2 even more than Iron Man 3.  I love the Thor movies because of the contents of the characters, the different realms, and the stories. But I only love IronMan cuz of RDJ, the armor, and the crazy ass tech. I do also believe they are saving the Mandarin for later and for something epic. Well either way, every movie that comes out is a win win situation for all of us.

I think they avoided Crimson Dynamo or Titanium Man in IM2 because having a final fight vs a big armored guy at the end of the movie would have repeated IM 1. Then again, Mickey Rourke at the end in huge armor kind of ruined that anyhow.

Iron Man is the only character so far not to have faced his major villain yet. And the ones he did face aren't really that major either weird. I think it's about time we do get Mandarin.

I had read they were going into the spy world more in this one.. if so I think Coldblood works perfectly as a minion to Mandarin especially the way they set it up in the first movie with the ten rings being a terrorist organization. I love Shane Black also, so if this is anything like his better movies like Lethal Weapon or Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang it will be great.

Oh and I also like the Thanos vs Thor idea.

 I don't know.  Thanos in Thor?  Thor couldn't beat him alone.  Thanos is super powerful, especially when he has the infinity gauntlet.  I suspect he will show up in Thor, but only to steal the gauntlet and then show up as the main villain in the Avengers.  Mandarin isn't powerful enough to require all the Avengers to go up against him.  Thanos on the other hand...

It's still likely Extremis, considering the other casting, but since they already used the revamped origin, they've got a chunk of screen time to fill with something,

I'm thinking this is right up there with Bane as the Batman villain. Oh don't give me that "But Bane is sooo awesome" crap! You Batsy fans werte saying the exact same thing when you heard Bane was the lead villain for TDKR.

I do hope they include Mandarin and that this villain is nothing more than his hired lackey though.

Wiseguy 5/17/2012 3:01:13 PM

I think the good thing about a lesser known villain is also the surprise element. They'll have more freedom to play with him without any uproar. And I like it, mostly because I trust them, that they're not doing an exact adaptation of the Extremis arc
  
Higgy, no of course Thor won't beat Thanos alone. This will be Loki's redemption as some have speculated (Hemsworth and Hiddleston). It'll end up being Thor/Loki and hopefully Odin teaming up to repel Thano's vengeance on Loki and Asgard where the Cube and the Infinity Gauntlet reside

If you look at The Avengers it was basically the Surtur Saga in a sense without Surtur. The main part left out was Loki helping defeat the bad guys and sort of redeeming himself by teaming up with Thor and Odin, Thor 2 will be it I'm guessing.............. of course just guessing
