spamfiend -> Captain America Suit (22/10/2012 6:29:25 PM)

Do you think they did a Captain America suit cos Stark was jealous of his threads?? Maybe took 'go put your suit on' in the Avengers too seriously lol..




AMart911 -> Oh come on!! (22/10/2012 7:47:34 PM)

Really!? Just how overly sensitive are we going to get. I know that we're trying not to insult anyone here. But REALLY!? You've taken one of the few diverse characters(asian or otherwise) and cast a "more acceptable" version. The Mandarin IS chinese. How hard is it to cast a chinese actor. Or an asian actor at least.

The design is taken from the recent(ish) Dark Reign storyline in the comics. The character who wore it was Iron Patriot (actually Norman Osborne, but as Sony owns his fictional ass, he definitely won't be making an appearance) in a conscious nod to both Iron Man and Cap. I expect the use of it in IM3 is mostly a wink to us geeks who read the funny books.

He looks like a terrorist.

Though within the context of the movies, it does make perfect sense that the government would want to capitalize on the return of Captain America by dressing up War Machine in the same way. In fact, I wonder if it will be directly referenced in the film.




albumental -> "Heroes - There is no such thing" (23/10/2012 2:30:44 PM)

Look, I know I'm going to sound like a nit-picky bastard but none-the-less. Does that line not strike as being a bit clunky? Particularly as it's one of the few lines of dialogue in the Trailer & is being used to introduce the big bad? The Mandarin I'm assuming is an intelligent geezer who'd have his grammar in check. Eg. "Heroes. There are no such things" (It's plural) or "A Hero. There is no such thing." or even "Heroes... they don't exist." As I said, nit picky but it's bugging me.
