I thought it was hilarious at the time, but afterwards i was just completely confused. Then soon after that i became pretty shocked, and let down lol. However, i'm not going to pretend like i've ever read a book with Mandarin in it. I haven't. So i can't be that upset, but i can ask................What were they really thinking with that?
Just going to say that using Mandarin solely to get the comic book fans into the theatre, and to hype up the trailers just felt soooo dirty. Sooo, soo dirty. Think about how much cooler it would have been if Tony fights his way to Mandarin only for Mandarin to kick his azz for a bit with magic, and then just vanish back to china or something.
Then if they do a spin off film they could just say Tony is busy fighting Mandarin in China so War Machine has to do his own thing.
Best Iron Man movie, yes. Did they slip up on a few things, absolutely.
Very interesting question. Even more interesting would be street thugs suing Batman himself for sticking sharp pieces of metal in their faces!
Batman's thing of course is that he would never kill (on purpose), thus cops leave him alone, and often help him out. BUT he does break, and cut the hell out of people. So, i wonder if there's something set up (by Gordon) to where criminals injuries just get swept under the rug? I mean, .... We sweep criminals injuries under the rug in real life so, it wouldn't be much of a stretch.
I really like that scenario. Honestly, that might actually be how it would go down. BUT imo...
I'm a big fan of both characters. Played pretty much all of their games that matter to completion. Sigh... I have to give it to Sam. The deciding factors for me are Sam's weaponry, and gadgets. Plus Third Echelon are the masters of intel. Sam would absolutely know what he was up against in this case. 47 may, or may not know about Sam himself. Remember, both men can be practically invisible when they want to be. If 47 is in character(which he would be) he wouldn't have any weapons aside from his pistols, and fiber wire. Of course in character, under a normal 47 mission, 47 wouldn't need major weaponry. However, he's not up against a botched group of clones, or a fat guy wearing a cowboy hat.
I think 47 underestimates Sam, and Sam along with help from his gadgets, and Intel ear piece gets the guy out alive, most likely not the same way they came in. I can't see Sam killing 47 though. Just getting out alive with the target. Getting 47 flustered enough to use his pistols in a short firefight would be a major victory for Sam. If they go at it again. .. Sam's dead. LOL
