Iron Man 3

From some talk in other threads it looks like Iron Man 3 is getting some traction. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.

Bring him in for Avengers 2 to team up and square off against Thanos, but as far as more Iron Man films, there's only so much of this you can do before it becomes stale. IM 1 was brilliant. 2 had a lot of action but was a bit of a letdown and 3....well lets just say Im putting IM 3 in that same little file along with Spider-Man 3, and X-3. Movies that just forgot where they came from and took a giant crap on the fans of the comics.

Id like RDJ back for Avengers 2, but as far as more Iron Man films, just stop before they get any worse IMO.
Minus the Spidey comparison, this.

The entire second half of the movie I couldn't stop thinking...

"Is that it? Is that really the Mandarin? He's got to be trying to fool Iron Man. Are we going to see him again? Was that really it?!"

I kept waiting for a news reporter scene similar to the way the movie started showing shots of an explosion at a prison and reports that the Mandarin escaped, dozens dead. I wondered if maybe the Mandarin was somewhere on shore or offshore watching the final combat scenes.

Yes it was a fun movie, but they never should have used the Mandarin. He was a pointless character the way he was used. They could have come up with any throw away character. No excuse for destroying the character like that.

I too hope Iron Man 3 was the last we'll see of Tony Stark (well, and Avengers 2). Villians are as important to a storyline as the hero.

Pretty rediculous how much Downey is raking in, I love him in the part but $50m - $80m seems outrageous.
I've read reports that it's more of a financial issue for hemsworth. He made around 150k from the avengers and marvel reportedly made a similar offer for the sequel.

Avengers is a ****ing golden goose. RDJ should get less, some others should get more. There should be concessions on both ends because nobody wants to be the one to kill the golden goose.

No kidding. Ppl actually still read comic books LOLLOLOL whut

These characters are decades old. This isn't about our current reading material (I can't remember the last time I read a comic book). This is about stomping on our childhood dreams!!!

Spoiler!


Usually I love comic book movies. I understand the unbelievable nature of them, take them for what they're worth, and come out saying they were good to great. This was a 7/10 and that's being generous.

I know I'm going to get burned for this, but I liked transformers I & II. They weren't great movies, but they were the kind of check your brain at the door and smile at the pretty colors type of films that I enjoy. On top of that, I don't know much about the Iron Man comics, and I still agree with you, this movie was terrible.

Has ANY movie fully followed the comic books to a T? Not that I can think of. What people have to realize is that these companies aren't making these movies to satisfy the comic nerds. They're doing it to draw in EVERYONE.

Shit....even Nolan's Batman sucked if you look at it from a strictly "follow the comic book" view.

Oh, I agree completely. I just think that stepping on the Mandarin was stupid and overboard.

The Mandarin was a draw to the comic nerds, not the common movie goer. No reason to even use him like that, since the EVERYONE group would have been just as happy with any costumed idiot, not knowing who the Mandarin is. It was basically a big "**** you" to the comic nerds if you ask me. The Mandarin was not needed to draw in the EVERYONE group, but he was highly anticipated by the comic nerds.

I agree with this. It was a cheap ploy to get the fan boys to spend their money, nothing more. The script was shit, so I can imagine at one point The Mandarin was probably a legit bad guy, but they couldn't figure out how to get the glowing orange human dragons to fit with that story line, so they gave AIM main billing and made The Mandarin a puppet, for which they probably patted themselves on the back for being "geniuses". It was a convoluted mess of a script with pretty bad direction. If it wasn't for RDJ this movie would be forever relegated to the shit heap (and that is why RDJ gets paid $35 million for this movie).

The wife and I saw this on Monday we were disappointed. Not good IMO, very forgettable.

True, which makes the decision to neuter the Mandarin and piss them off even dumber. There was absolutely no reason for wasting such a great villain on a lame attempt at a plot twist.

It did seem to flounder after the "reveal", but I still enjoyed it. Probably because of RDJ. Well, as mentioned earlier, Piper was looking good too!

Yeah there was a scene where I saw her stomach and literally said, "holy shit" out loud. I had no idea she was that fit/attractive.
