Saw IM3 and I am so incredibly happy with it. There are no words for how much glee this movie gives me. Stuff I was worried about? Not a concern, handled with aplomb and even humor in some cases.

Pepper! Pepper Pepper Pepppppppeeeeeeeer omg. I'm crossing my fingers that she still has the Extremis and Tony fixing it was just stopping the little explosion problem. That would be a significant move away from comics canon, and one I would adore seeing. She was badass and in control and I just asfdjlj ♥♥♥♥♥.

I also love that, in a way, Killian was her villain, too. He wasn't using her to get to Tony; that was Maya's idea. Killian wanted Pepper because he wanted Pepper. I definitely got the feeling that even if Tony had been out of the picture, he still would have gone for her. Which just makes it that much better that she got in her own licks.

Speaking of the Extremis, can I just say that I'm wallowing in the fact that Tony didn't get it? Don't get me wrong, I love the Extremis storyline, but it does change him in such huge ways that I feel like it wouldn't have worked well for MCU Tony. Actually, I kind of loved Tony's entire arc and how they pulled it together. He's definitely matured as a character, and it shows.

I also spotted Papa Stilinski and made gleeful clappyhands. If you don't follow Teen Wolf, feel free to ignore that.

TL;DR: I love how much it deviated from the comics. As great as they were, MCU needs to be its own universe, and taking that step aside was beautiful. (Especially for the Mandarin; fuck was I worried about that!) I love how they tied up this arc of Tony's life, which I feel was a mix of recovery/maturing, but left it open for a continuation. I love that Rhodey and Pepper both got serious play, were badass in their own right and tied directly into the plot in wonderful ways.

And I love love love that they took Tony back to his roots. The Mechanic, a guy who makes stuff, not just a guy in armor. It felt more true to the character than a lot of stuff has lately.

All of that being said: go see it.

Oh my god, it's finally releasing in the US! (I've been holding in my glee.) Pretty much had the exact same reaction as you (except I missed the Sheriff, shame on me :P I had worried about the bots, going in, on top of the above. I had religiously avoided trailers and spoilers leading up o it, though, and did not realize AIM was such a large part ^^;; but all the plotlines were very delicately and well intertwined, and I appreciated that.

Please let Pepper keep Extremis indeed! It also seemed rather openended as to whether Tony gave himself the fixed version later, but that might be just my pet theory. I see it again for a third time tomorrow, and may be taking notes. (For cosplay purposes. >.>)
