    Nope, they killed the real Mandarin already. Remember, he was Killian?

    also not the mandarin. I'm just going to pretend IM3 was a prank by the studios and actually didn't happen (thinking happy thoughts)

    Actually it's been hinted by Marvel that Killian stole and used the name from someone else and that real Mandarin would be taking his revenge on Slatterly.

    Which would be a pointless bit of pandering and borderline fanwank, frankly; The entire point - as much as fans reacted to it like the Mass Effect 3 ending - was that the Mandarin was a concept wholly dreamed up by Killian to deliberately create a 'Bin Laden'-esque threat or something along those lines. Actually revealing there to be a Mandarin who Killian somehow took the name from would reek of pandering, since the 'real' Mandarin would ostensibly have to be more powerful than Killian, but sat on the sidelines while some mook playing pretend besmirched his name.

    Marvel will do what [I]they[I] want.
    If you like it fine. If you don't they couldn't give a toss.

    Actually, since the prison is Seagate, maybe we'll see Luke Cage? Even though the Netflix series doesn't come out until 2015 at least, they might have cast him already.

    Why should they? So long as the majority of the audience enjoyed whatever they did, they can't concern themselves with the few that didn't. They know as well as you and I know that you're not going to please everyone and can't afford to try to.

    The Mandarin was a rich aristocrat who spent all of his fiefdom's money turning himself into a super-soldier. Killian was much closer to comic Mandarin than a terrorist who spouts strawman liberalisms.

    I just saw Killian as a reimagined take on the Melter.

    Nah, he was flipping around karate-chopping armors in half. That's pure Mandarin.

    Of course they don't. Most of the audience was fine with it.

    This looks fun. Can't wait.
