The only IM villain that I like. 
 
Ghost should team up with her.
 
EDIT: Btw, Ultron is Hank's villain, not Tony's. =]

Mandarin for sure
#7 Posted by Reactor (2411 posts) - - Show Bio

Anyone that'll have a good fight scene lasting longer than two minutes.

I feel like they might be able to pull a better story out if its not actually a mainstay villain,
an help with the cohesion into the Avengers movie. No rule says the villain can't be someone
from the MU really, and many of these offer a predictable storyline.

 QFT. 
where Crimson Dynamo? thats as classic as it gets and given the characters in 2 he would really tie together with the series.

@FadeToBlackBolt:   Now your talking.  That sounds like a good story!

I voted for Ezekiel.... but I changed my mind now. Madam Masque. Ezekiel should definitely appear in film at some point, though, imo.

Dude, in Marvel's infinite wisdom, they had decided to merge Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash into one villain, which is what we got in Iron Man 2. There is no hope that we'll have the real Crimson Dynamo now.

Titanium Man. Naw, that'd be boring, he just looks cool. Mandarin.

@Reactor: 
i didnt buy it as Crimson Dynamo for one. Additionally Crimson Dynamo is a mantle worn by many people
throughout the years, so really not. they could introduce the next of kin or what not as the armored and
named Crimson Dynamo. so actually there's a lot of hope. (will they though, probably not but who knows).

Manderin, hands down.

#15 Posted by brc2000 (1679 posts) - - Show Bio

Mandarin as the main villain and hopefully Ghost or maybe Radioactive Man as the secondary.
 
Masque could work as well, as long as they incorporate Nefaria and the mob as the main villains. 
 
So far they haven't gone with magic or meta-humans in any of the Iron Man movies, bu since it ties with Thor, Avengers, Hulk etc., there shouldn't be a problem.

Mandarin, can't have an Iron Man franchise without the archenemy

#17 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio
@CATMANEXE: I left Crimson Dynamo Because Whiplash from Ironman 2 was a combo of Him and Blacklash
#18 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Mandarin. We were promised him from the beginning.  
 
Madam Masque is a close second cause we haven't seen a female villain yet. 
 
Blizzard would be cool to see, but I don't think he could hold his own for the main villain. 
 
MODOK should never be in a movie. Ever, lol.

mandarin or crimson dynamo foom is cool to but i dont think there ready yet

The Mandarin, no one wants another guy in battlesuit vs guy in battlesuit

This movie needs to be huge, even though I know people get "annoyed" that Iron Man only fights "evil Iron Men" but really I'm personally not bothered by this, give Iron Man a good villain, even if he/she has their own suit of armor, that can be a great badguy and I'm good. But if I had a choice, I'd love to see....
 
 Fin Fang Foom!

#23 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm going with Ezekiel Stane cause it would be a great revenge story for the film series I mean I'd like to see the mandarin used at some point I'm just not sure how he could be incorporated into Jon Favroe Iron man without loosing credibilty

#24 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess if i pick one i pick Ghost, just because he makes a great opposite of Tony
and would look really cool in live action. Plus then kids would be in Ghost costumes
the next Halloween and that would be too cool.

#25 Posted by dementedtheclown (747 posts) - - Show Bio

Hulk, then him n hulk vs. someone else

#26 Posted by xlizen (106 posts) - - Show Bio

I vote for Madam Masque and alcohol! Mandarin would be great too since he was foreshadowed in the other two movies and it could show off magic versus science as a theme(or something like that).

#27 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio
@dementedtheclown: I think that's more suited for the Avengers than Iron man by himself
#28 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio
@FadeToBlackBolt:  I know Hank made Ultron but Ironman has fought him a time or two and with film adaptations it's not too out of the realm of possibility to have them fight each and since it's after the avengers movie where they'll probably have some cameo of ultron I can see it happen in Ironman 3 or an Avengers Sequel
#29 Posted by moviegeek17 (1474 posts) - - Show Bio

Maderin would be really cool, or maybe bring back justin hammer as a more serious villain with maybe living laser being the physical threat

#30 Posted by hydrabob (14977 posts) - - Show Bio

Ultimo would be a good so they could use him to setup Mandarin (even tough i think they said they weren't going to do Mandarin but oh well) then they could Blizzard, M.O.D.O.K., and Fin Fang Foom
just trying to think about the big picture

Fair enough, but Ultron is Hank's villain the same way that the Juggernaut is the X-Men's. Just because he fought Spidey a few times doesn't mean he should show up in his movies, especially when the real rival has a film on the way.

I want to see the Mandarin, of course, but I would also like to see another villain working for him like Spymaster or the Ghost. 

#33 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio
@Icon:  I'd like to see Ezekial Stane work with Mandarin myself but I'm always cautious about more then one villain in a movie it can get pretty bad if Batman Forever, Spider-man 3 and Batman and Robin taught us anything
#34 Posted by Icon (2054 posts) - - Show Bio
@The Angry Comic Book Critic: I agree, it's a balancing act. I would hate to see it get out of hand like Batman Forever or Batman & Robin, but both Batman movies by Christopher Nolan handled multiple villains well. As did Iron Man 2. I think it can work great with 2 villains working together like in Iron Man 2. The Mandarin is a mastermind kind of villain and has used others as agents so it would make sense. 
#35 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio
@Icon:  cause Nolan knows how to use multiple Villains without making the plot incoherent Iron man 2 it was good villain wise but it listed dangerously close Okay with that pair and honestly I didn't consider Justin hammer a villain in that film annoying Douche bag yes but credible villain....not so much

I say Mandarin as the main villain, with Fing Fang Foom as his ally. I don't think a giant dragon monster can handle being the main villain of a franchise like Iron Man. 
 
Not to mention Foom has a ridiculous name, especially for a villain. It's like how Galactus would look stupid outside of comics, same principle applies to Foom's name (and his purple pants)

Disagree. His name is normal, now Mandarin is a stupid name. A sorcerer with a name of a fruit ? Epic fail. Foom for sure should be in the movie as a main villain, hands down. Especially if he will be made like in the picture.
#40 Posted by -Eclipse- (7507 posts) - - Show Bio
@Inevitable: LOL, he's not named after the fruit, the word Mandarin has a few meanings. 
 
But no-one at the movies is going to take someone called Fin Fang Foom seriously. It works in comics but, in real life, it's pretty lame. They'd have to give him a different name.
#41 Edited by Inevitable (709 posts) - - Show Bio
@-Eclipse-: And what is wrong with the  name "Fin Fang Foom" ? FIN.. FANG... FOOM.  What is wrong with it ? Mandarin is a stupid name for the sorcerer, who wears a f...cking green dress.
#42 Posted by -Eclipse- (7507 posts) - - Show Bio
@Inevitable:  A few defnitions of Mandarin: 
 
  • a member of an elite intellectual or cultural group
  • any high government official or bureaucrat
  • a high public official of imperial China
  • the dialect of Chinese spoken in Beijing and adopted as the official language for all of China
 
So I think it's definitely a suitable name. Also...

Who says they have to use the green robes? 
Plus, that argument doesn't really work in this case. You're saying that Mandarin's classic look is stupid, but your argument is that Fin Fang Foom is a better choice... 

 So a dragon wearing purple pants is cooler than a green robe, right?                 
#43 Posted by Inevitable (709 posts) - - Show Bio
@-Eclipse-: At least he doesn't wear a dress and his name can't be mistaken for something else. Also, Mandarin looks horrible there.

@Inevitable: A robe is not a dress. And again, you're talking about the classic version of the character. The classic version of Foom wears purple pants, so your argument simply doesn't hold water. And I'm sure the classic version of Whiplash looked stupid, but he still made a good villain. My point is that their looks are irrelevant because movies often change a character's look to make them more realistic. Batman is a good example of this. 
 
I also disagree with Mandarin looking horrible there and I'm starting to think you're just insulting the character for the heck of it, lol 
 
Most people know that Mandarin is a dialect of Chinese. Sure there's be a few fruit jokes on the internet, but who cares? Movie audiences are still going to take him more seriously than a giant dragon called Fin Fang Foom.
#47 Posted by Duncan (11440 posts) - - Show Bio

I still hope that the Mandarin will be the Villain but Madame Masque is also interesting.

Manderin however I wanted to see Fin Fang Foom in the last movie with the rumours and what not.

 Definitely want to see him on the big screen.

 And in a supporting role for The Mandarin.

I'd love to see Sub-Marina as Ironman's foe.  Their classic battle (reprint Hk & S.M.. #37)  was one of my all time favorites.  The punch Namor gave to Ironman on page #4 was the best power shot in comics.  Then, let Namor and the Hulk meet and greet the Avengers, as it was in the day.
