Man, to write the whole movie off just because of how the villain looks in a promotional poster? Pretty darn lame.

This is a joke, right? You're doing some-kind-of impression of a radical fanboy picking out petty flaws? I mean you came "this" close to complaining about the color of his nacelles.

To me he looks like an intimidating man surrounded by the treasures/tokens for those he's slaughtered. The camo pants? Eh, it's just an image thing. Again, probably a "trophy" from some conquest or maybe nothing else fits. I doubt he gets to the mall often to buy a good, real, set of pants.

It's just another nitpick in a long line of nitpicks.

-NO RED TRUNKS?!? This movie will fail"
-Organic Webbing.
-Flames on Optimus Prime
-Blonde James Bond
-"teh puffy" batman begins suit
-Fruit rollup Superman cape and muted colors from "Superman Returns
-Bobblehead Batman in "The dark knight rises"
-Basketball Spider-man
-No zero on the Enterprise
-The entire 2009 Enterprise

And others i'm forgetting or choosing to forget or just don't care to remember

By no means am I a fanboy. Have loved IM for as long as I can remember. Have every issue including the terrible teen Tony years. The Mandarin has always been THE bad guy for me, the one easiest to make a simple and easy translation to film. A regal character, exuding power, control, and terror by his simple presence. Now I see a common man in camo pants with an ill kept beard. As perfectly as they captured Tony to film, they have let me down so much with the poor translation of the villains.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

You're making this generalization based on how the character looks on a movie poster. I think his portrayal in the movie itself would matter a whole lot more than his costume.

I mean, I doubt they could much get away with the look from the comics in the movie. Hell, the Thor movie and Avengers barely pulled off the giant horned Asgardian helmets and they've pretty much abandoned the idea of Thor's helmet.

Besides, this may very well not how he looks in the whole movie, it's just a single picture of him. It could be his bed clothes for all we know. If you're going to write off the movie based on a single characters, at least watch the movie first. Or see some scenes of the guy. But, nope, you see a movie poster with him on it and you throw it all away.

I like it myself. I think it's worth keeping in mind that he is probably going to be a modern terrorist, or at least act like a modern terrorist and if that is the case then what we see here would fit that.

The black leather really does look dull compared to how everyone has embraced their comic book costumes in the Avengers!

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Two things. One, did you see him in the trailer? I would suggest that clips of footage should give a better picture of what he's like than a staged movie poster.

Two, I think the word boycott was ill-chosen and is the predominant reason there's been a negative response to your comment. If you said you were hesitant to see the movie or skipping the movie because you think it'll be bad, that would be one thing. Boycott carries a connotation of protest and a one-man protest is a bit much over camo pants.

Yeah, I like that they actually put the team in blue and yellow in First Class.
