Okay, so anybody who's seen Iron Man 3 at this point has seen how they suckered us in with the Mandarin in trailers and then neutered him. Whether or not you rolled with it for the sake of the movie :rolleyes: or raged as Mandarin fans did :angry: it was pretty divisive and probably not the best decision.

 

Don't get me wrong, Guy Pearce was awesome and so was Ben Kingsley (while he was 'in character'). But really, it just came across like a half-assed version of the twists from Batman Begins and Dark Knight Rises: Big bad guy turns out to be an diversion, hired by the main villain who holds a grudge. Plus the motivation for Killian's grudge and evil was kinda lame.

 

All IMHO, of course.

 

Moving on, it's time to have fun with this debacle and make our OWN nonsensical plot twists. Choose a classic superhero movie, or any classic movie you love, and make up a sudden plot twist that's oh-so-clever! Whether it's somebody else being Luke's father, or the little boy and NOT Bruce Willis who was dead all along, let your imagination soar!

For a good plot twist.  William Defoe(spelled his last name wrong).  Steals The Iron Patriot Suit at the end of Iron Man 3.  Then in Amazing Spider-man 2 Tobey plays Ben Reilly.  >_>

The twist in Iron Man 3 was great, what are you talking about? Plus it was a nice bad guy role reversal from Iron Man 2.

Had they done it with another character than the one they had plastered all over the marketing I would have been fine. It just felt like such a cop out after they had built him up so much. No rings, no legendary martial arts skills, and none of the origin from the comics. Just a drunk, coked-up actor, herpy derp!

 

And the fact that it's been confirmed that Guy Pearce's Killian really is the MCU version of the Mandarin just makes it worse.

Makes me wish that they would connect the new Spider-Man with the MCU even more :rolleyes:

 

And Tobey as Ben Reilly? GENIUS!!!!

I didn't mind it. The fact that Pearse and Kingsley are such talented actors and the detailed explanation of the deception definately make it go smoother. Although I did wonder how isolated must the actor have been to not know what was going on.

 

As for twists:

 

The characters in Zombieland are the ones with a disease and are shooting innocent people they think are zombies after eating horse meat.

The Mandarin thing was one of the most unexpected things I've ever seen and the marketing contributed to that. I don't call it suckering, I call it genius. Alldrich served the villainous role just fine anyway and it was pretty much established that he was the Mandarin, so what's the problem?

No you didn't. You said the fact that Aldrich is the MCU's Mandarin just makes it worse without saying why. -.- Seriously, things aren't always gonna be identical to the comic books. Get used to it.

Pepper Potts was Iron Man the whole time!

I like it. I think it would be even better with I Am Legend though.
