I've finally seen Iron Man 3, so it's now safe to go back on the intranets. Great movie-- not as astonishing as the first Iron Man, naturally, but that said, it was great, and wiped away the bitter taste of IM2.

Having avoided Twitter because most of my friends saw the movie opening weekend and were gleefully posting their reactions, I'm really looking forward to something like this being available Teen develops Twivo, a Twitter app to block spoilers.

Agreed! I was doubtful after the second film, but after skimming a few positive reviews, I went today and enjoyed IM3 very much. :)

The only real flaw in the movie was the absence of SHIELD and the Avengers. One can argue whether the threat of the Mandarin was something originally within their scope, but once Tony Stark became a prime target, it was incredibly odd not to see SHIELD all over his Malibu house, or for Tony not to call one of his fellow Avengers for help when he's stranded in Tennessee. Not to mention that Pepper didn't reach out to them either, and yet in the past she had no hesitation in calling SHIELD.

From a storytelling perspective, you can see why they structured it this way, Tony on his own is much more compelling, and it made for a great movie. But the juggling act that Marvel is doing, where they've planned a progression of standalone movies mixed in with Avengers sequels is going to be an increasingly tricky act to pull off.

There was the one reference that I recall, when Jarvis said the information for Tony's investigation of the Mandarin was pulled from SHIELD, FBI and CIA data intercepts. If the new Avengers movie (next year?) is set during Christmas 2012, that might square the timeline. The first one was set March of 2012, iirc. Busy year!
