    Yeah, Tony Stark is hardly an "every man". He's a genius, billionaire playboy!

    Do yourself a favor and read the damn book. If you can't I'll tell you via PM. It's a 4 year old comic, sure, but it's a great, nuanced tale, and it's definitely worth not spoiling.

    I got your link but I apparently don't have a viewer for the file type... or something. I track down a trade for it and give it a look. I'm not a big Marvel reader, nor a follower of Iron Man (really his movie was the first meaningful exposure I had to him.) But in reading about him since then and reading about the Extremis armor (again, IIRC was the armor encased in the hollow spots of his bones or something like that...?) made me roll my eyes a bit. The "man in powered suit" idea appealed to me more. But I'll check out that story line.

    Here's the wikipedia entry for Extremis which gives a good overview of it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extremis_(comics)

    Extremis is basically a nanotech formula. The first film used the revised origin story Ellis introduced in this arc as well. During the Secret Invasion story...Tony shut down his brain to prevent Norman from accessing the Superhuman Registration Act database which contained all the registered heroes identities...but I digress. It's all in the article.

    Unofficial confirmation that Mandarin is indeed playing a part in the film? I mean it is comicbookmovie.com so....
    I believe we all would want Mandarin. It's Iron Man's Green Goblin, his Joker so to not have the character appear during IM's big coming out trilogy would seem a crime.

    I'm guessing, if true, they are saving the official announcement for a big event. Say July Comic Con or NY Comic Con to parade out RDJ and Kingsley then show some footage.

    there's rumours on SHH that the Iron Patriot armour will appear, but no word on who wears it.

    Extremis pushed the "iron man and stark are one" idea even further

    The nano bots emerge from inside his bones to form the undersheath

    Stark then wills the ironman parts to his body

    ^ And I'm guessing that was drawn when Tom Cruise was linked to the role!

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest it won't be Norman Osborn in the suit.

    Well, your bones are somewhat porous but with pretty good reason since the stuff inside of them (bone marrow) is sort of needed.

    Not unless they want to get into a legal fight with Sony for the film rights.
