I was stunned, especially since this movie in my humble opinion, is canyons beyond the abysmal Iron Man 2. Now at face value, I certainly sympathize with those upset. When news began trickling out on this project, it seemed we were going to get the Iron Man film we’ve always wanted. Shelves and shelves of armors, based off the much-revered Extremis storyline that the MCU has been tapping for years, and the introduction of alien ring wearing-kung fu badass-warlord Mandarin. Now the latter came as a curve ball, due to the fact Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) made several comments dismissing Mandarin, referred to as a “racist caricature” by the director/writer. Now fans of Ole Shell Head and comic fans in general feel free to disagree; but I totally see where he’s coming from.
