Anyone yet watched it? I thought the twists were pretty surprising (warning: contains spoilers)
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: -Mandarin(ben kingsley) was a fraud. A paid actor to serve as face for the terrorist act. Never saw that one coming and I still find it hilarious to remember Tony first seeing him face to face.
-Ironman wiped out his armory and having surgery to remove the shrapnel lodged on his heart thereby not relying on that artificial heart anymore and quiting as IM.
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: yeah I assumed he'll be back to but I've read somewhere on the net even Downy jr. isn't sure of IM's future. Plus it'd be really interesting if we get an ironman that doesn't have that chest gadget on him
Oh and as far as I'd rate it, probably 8/10. Easily the most plot-intensive ironman ever. The only downside is the post credit scene.

Anyway I hope to God the avengers still retain the original cast plus the new ones. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: I feel the Extremis process was wasted on Pepper. Was kinda hoping the recipient would be tony to fight fire with fire, instead we got an amped one-off version of pepper. The least they could have done was let it be with pepper for longer time.
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Yeah I think he's ok. They didn't blew too much of the screen time on his interaction with Stark and he's not annoying.
The fight scenes were ok, the villain's end came a bit out of nowhere but overall it was great. They burned so much mark <insert number> here, the next future Ironman costume versions will be insane. Starting mark 42 something i think. I wish they revive some of them specially that heavy lifting unit
Just got back from seeing it and it was pretty damn awesome.
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: I didn't see the Mandarin being an actor thing coming, but that might be because as a comic book fan I was expecting Mandarin to be the big bad he is in the comics, and a throwdown between him and Tony. That being said, it was a pretty interesting move and made Killian an important figure rather than putting him in a similar role that Sam Rockwell played in IM2.
Other thoughts- [SPOILER - highlight to read]: The non armour action scenes were really good, and I can see what they meant with all the talk of back to basics Tony in interviews and stuff.
House Party was great.
Rhodes and Pepper both had moments to shine, which was cool.
But yeah post credits scene was disappointing, was hoping for a Pym introduction
This movie was up there with Green Lantern......the whole plot was lame.. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Mandarin being fake was meh....Tony getting whooped in his own house and having malfunctions with his suit for no reasons ...lame....also why did it take him a shit load of time to realise oh wait i have like 60 armors in the basement yet I want to recharge my total crappy armor,the thermo men taking on the suits and one shoting theme was terrible,Pepper whoopin Killian was horrible......
Only positive thing about the film is that it was funny.....
