look, a very spoilery reaction to iron man 3.
i have as is expected so many thoughts and feelings and many of them are about wasted storylines and how if you’re going to do extremis you should do extremis and how if you’re going to give us the mandarin you should give us the mandarin and while the idea that we make our own terrorists is great, they could have rolled with tony’s anxiety over wormholes and new york and aliens and put him up against this genius guy wielding alien rings AND MADE A MOVIE THAT WOULD HAVE LOGICALLY FOLLOWED THE AVENGERS AND SET US UP FOR AVENGERS 2 AND GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
(they didn’t even have to make the rings makluan)
and they wasted maya hansen and gave her moments of genius to men and they wasted AIM and i didn’t even get MODOK out of it and i don’t understand this tony and i don’t understand why anything and the only way to fix this is if iron man 4 comes out tomorrow and the reason tony blew all his armor is because he’s been working with reed and already has the bleeding edge upgrade and also i agree with your thoughts on pepper. i just need someone to explain everything to me. p.s. why would you make that one henchman coldblood and not zeke stane.
it was funny, though. i laughed a lot in between my whining. i did not actually dislike it.
eta: i would also like to register a complaint that they basically did very little with ten rings even though the first movie had ten rings, they could have made that more explicit i thought.
additional eta: is there a way to ao3-savior ‘superfamily’ or am i just going to have to take a fork to my eyes?
