Iron Man 3 trailer first thoughts

The first trailer for Iron Man 3 was released yesterday.


2 things.

1.Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.

2.Extremis Suit.

Some people have been poo-pooing the choice of Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin since he is not Asian. If that is your only qualm with that choice, you forget that it is BEN KINGSLEY. He played Mahatma Gandhi after all! Oh, he’s not Indian.

I’m curious to see how they’ll do the adaptation on the “Extremis” Suit. Since in the comics how it comes about is he is extremely injured and takes the new super solder serum that has been made into a virus form by the military (to deliver it to troops to make them like Capt. America) and adapts it a bit before taking it. He removes the arc reactor from his chest, and can control his suit remotely (and eventually up to 6 suits remotely) just with his mind. It looks like they are adapting it to make it a bit of a thriller in the suit aspect, like his dark side is made corporeal in the suit form (in the scene with gweneth in bed). Looks intriguing.
