Cool Videos: How It Should Have Ended: Iron Man 3

05.30.2013

Although you wouldn't know it from the box office, IRON MAN 3 has become one of the most devisive superhero films to date, due largely to the treatment of the film's villains, the loose rendition of Warren Ellis' Extremis storyline, and the controversial ending. Personally, I stand on the more favorable side of IRON MAN 3, but totally get the grievances that many fans have. Apparently, so did the folks at How It Should Have Ended, who have created a nice little animated alternative to help vent those frustrations. I never made THE INCREDIBLES connection until seeing this, but it's still a very flimsy connection. I think a lot of the vitriol for the film is unwarranted, but if you're one of the many who felt slighted, then this is for you.

Sayeth Whaaaaat?:

IRON MAN 3 is currently in theaters.

Funny and True

Even if it dident even begin to address most of the problems with this crappy movie. I will never forgive the waste of potential with The Mandarin or the lame comic clequays that went into Guy Pierces villain and the super soldiers.

"Oh my gosh, this is totally The Incredibles"

I love How it Should Have Ended, their stuff is always well-animated, hilariously-written, nicely voice-acted and doesn't feel as mean-spirited as Honest Trailers and Cinema Sins. Harley's "target demographic" shirt was a nice sight gag. I actually enjoyed Iron Man 3, I thought Shane Black was able to surprise and did some pretty ballsy things for a big studio movie, but I can understand why fans felt disappointed.

I think it's entirely possible to enjoy Iron Man 3 but still be very disappointed with some of the things it did... ESPECIALLY...not following through with delivering the badass The Mandarin we were teased with in the trailers. I know so...coz that's how I feel about this movie. I didn't like the plot twist, didn't like the blowing up of the suits at the end, didn't appreciate the way Pepper's new found powers were totally dismissed with by the movie's end...or how the implication(?) that

Sounds like I'm going all Amazing Spider-Man on this...but the difference I guess is that looking back on both movies...despite over thinking about them and focusing on their flaws...I'm pretty sure I still enjoyed watching Iron Man 3 :o)

Maybe he wasn't ready to get rid of the shrapnel until the point that he did. Maybe he didn't do it because he was afraid of what might happen or perhaps of letting go that part of him.

The Iron Man movie came out only five years ago. Depending on your health care system, waiting five years for an operation is not that unusual.

That about sums it up. The more I think about IM3, the stupider it gets. So many ridiculous plot holes and just plain stupid things happening in that movie. It's fitting that they compared it to The Dark Knight Rises here, which was similarly Swiss cheese-like with it's story.

They really need to bring in people to look these scripts over for this kind of nonsense. That is if the writers can't or wont do it themselves. I know it's a comic book movie, but that doesn't excuse this kind of

All the villains felt weak in this movie so slapstick throughout the whole movie. In fact i felt like every character in this movie took it as a joke

so my question is, if Guy Perce came back to play 'The Mandarin' in future Iron Man/ Avengers movies would people be confused?

OK, what you said makes no sense.

Not sure if you're joking or not, but thumbs down.

I think they would be confused seeing how 'The Mandarin' was pretty definitively destroyed at the end of Iron Man 3.

heh

The big thing that bugs me is that he had all of those suits under his house, and he didn't use them when he was drowning. The whole thing felt like it was written by a teenager.

I watched the original Iron Man movie recently. Jarvis is a program and the same program runs at both his house in Malibu and in his office in New York. Normally any changes made to Jarvis in one place are automatically uploaded to Jarvis in the other place unless Stark states otherwise: we know this because there was an exchange in Iron Man that went like this:

Tony: Jarvis, I want to start a new project.
Jarvis: Do you want this to appear on the server in New York?
Tony: No. Let's

Tony: Jarvis, I want to start a new project.
Jarvis: Do you want this to appear on the server in New York?
Tony: No. Let's just keep it here for now.

That exchange was very important because when you watch Iron Man 3 Tony's house in Malibu is destroyed. Jarvis is destroyed. But then later Jarvis is working. How? Well, Tony needed an internet connection: he used the internet connection in the news van. Tony was then able to (in Tennessee) control the suits in Malibu using Jarvis' server in New York. It was not explained in Iron Man 3 that he was doing this: you need to go back and watch Iron Man again to realize that this was what he was doing. I do remember thinking while I was watching the movie "What? Huh?" but it makes sense now.

Of course, yeah, it would have been better if, at the very least, he would have been wearing a better suit when his house was attacked.

I can understand why alot of people felt betrayed by this film because of the way it handled the Mandarin. I enjoyed it because I thought it was a risky and bold move for Marvel to do and the fact that it didn't ruin the story or film at all for me. I thought the whole was entertaining and it has easily become my favorite film of the trilogy.

And you don't read comics and don't know the source well enough to compare the two?

Knowing comics isn't the end all be all for comic movies, not one comic movie (save for maybe the watchmen) has followed a story line to a T, like nolans dark knight trilogy, he took elements of some great batman stories (year one, dark knight returns, knightfall ect.) and mixed them into the stories he was telling and while i still enjoyed iron man 3, I HATED what they did with the Mandarin, I had been looking forward to that showdown since they mentioned the 10 rings in the first movie, and
