Okay I heard something about the Mandarin that if true will piss me off to a point that would make those people mad about Black Hiemdal seem rational.

The rumor says that Iron Man's arch nemesis the Mandarin is portrayed in the movie as a drunken actor paid by the guy who made the Extremis virus to distract from his plans. If true these are Shumacher levels of bulls**t.

Nothing is wrong with Black Heimdall I was just using the over reaction as a comparison to how I feel if this rumor is true. Turning Heimdall black took nothing away from his character where as turning Mandarin into a pointless figure head is disrespectful to the character and to Iron Man fans.

I wasn't saying there was anything wrong with Black Heimdall, some people flipped out about it who cares, that not even close to the point of the article.

Seen the movie, won't spoil

@xorion: The rumor I heard was that he's a drunken actor hired by Killian to distract Iron Man, so he doesn't even get the respect Bane was treated with if this is true.

That would be stupid. IM3 has got a 93% currently on Rotten Tomatoes.

what's so wrong with a black Heimdall?

Exactly, and I don't remember people actually mad about it.

I was mad about it.It just didn't work for me.

why?

I mean, what's wrong with that?

or are you stating a beef with the specific actor?

So what I'm gathering from this thread is that no one cares about turning Iron Man's primary enemy for the last 40 or so years into a joke but we do want to argue about a race change of a side character that literally no one gave a crap about prior to the movie that came out like 3 years ago?

@joshmightbe:

Extreme super spoilers below.

It's true. Mandarin is an actor that another villain hired as a distraction.

@innervenom123: Its a good thing I'm in a room alone after having heard that from you and someone else. I may have just started randomly punching. Some one may have even been bitten.

Well, damn. Anyone care to tell me what the post credits scene is?

#20 Posted by joshmightbe (24601 posts) - - Show Bio

@biteme_fanboy: Its probably Shane Black finding an Iron Man fan and kicking him directly in the nuts if this is any indicator

Well the actor was great.THe problem was that at first I was confused if this was really Heimdall because I am used to him being white.

A funny SCIENCE BROS scene with Bruce and Tony.

Not the rumored GOTG scene we were all hoping for.

@joshmightbe: I care!

Cause its true. It pisses me off. And I'm not that big of an Iron Man fan. Also heard that Pepper kills Killian and that he destroys all the armors and the arc reactor is removed.

Batman dies

Marion Cotillard plays Talia Al Ghul

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is really Robin

So basically Marvel just trolled all the Iron Man fans that have been asking when Mandarin is going to be in the movies

#30 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (7543 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah I am pretty upset about it. Whatever though. I'm not much of a fan of the Iron man movies anyways... C'mon Thor 2!

#31 Edited by End_Boss (725 posts) - - Show Bio

That is unfortunate, and a gross misstep on the part of the story crew. Wow.

Was the music any good? I was watching the clip where he puts the armor on during the house attach and I wasn't into it. I also enjoy a movie that has good music it adds to it.
