I wrote an article a little while ago https://wellthatsdifferent.wordpress.com/2012/12/10/the-worst-evil-plan/ talking about how I didn’t like the plans of Bane from Batman and Silva from Skyfall. But the thing is there is a trend happening in the movie business where the bad guy is a super-smarter than everyone else, ultra-badass. And Iron Man 3 and Star Trek 2 are going along with the fad.
In Iron Man 3, the Mandarin is the bad guy. He brings an organization that is smart and deadly. I don’t know if he will be magic based, like his Marvel comics character, or his powers will be technologically based. The other 2 Iron Man villains were technologically based; this made them more believable characters. From the trailer, he looks to be the deadliest person Iron Man has ever faced.
In Star Trek: Into Darkness we are shown KHAN!!! He looks even more badass than the Mandarin. We are shown building exploding everywhere, space crafts falling out of the sky. And he also sounds like he is a man who enjoys watching his victims squirm before he finished them. I think he will push Kirk to his limits in this movie.
Both movie look great, but I hope their master plans don’t resemble Bane and Silva’s. Plans that involve flat out suicide to achieve their goals. Not dying in a blaze a glory, killing themselves to support a petty grudge.
