Best Buy restocked it a day or two ago, and I ordered from there. Now when the hell is the first Captain America movie going to be that price?

I paid $4.99 each for Iron Man 1 and 2 on Groupon a couple of years back. Iron Man was the 1 disc edition, and Iron Man 2 was the three disc set. Iron Man 2 also came with a slipcover, so it was a good deal.

You got this from Groupon? They did have a $3 shipping charge from what I recall. So, it was $8 effectively

Unsure about the DMR points, but it doesn't have a digital copy.

All North American editions of Iron Man 3 contain a Action Code eligible for DMR. However the blue border BD/DVD only combo does not contain a digital copy.

Only the gold border BD/DVD/DC combo, 3D combo, and the DVD+DC release are eligible for DMA.

Shipping was free if you ordered $25 worth of other goods. So it still came out to $4.99 + tax.

Just an FYI, the Iron Man 3 combo pack is on sale for $9.99 at Best Buy. PM at Target and use a $5 off any Disney Combo Pack coupon from the offer/reward in your DMR account to get it for $5 + tax.

PM and manufacturers coupon are accepted at Target. It is not YMMV. The coupon scans without a glitch once they PM.

If you just try to use the coupon at Best Buy, then it's YMMV for the coupon doesn't always take off $5.

Iron Man 3 director Shane Black reveals that a female villain in the original script was nixed by Marvel corporate.

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe films are already the most prolific series of continuity-connected features ever conceived, it does have its share of duds along with dubious outings that remained profitable. Amongst the latter group was director Shane Black’s 2013 canonical contribution Iron Man 3. The film, a $1.2 billion global hit, does carry a tainted perception with the fandom due to a notable weakness when it came to villains. However, Black has reveals that a major veto by the studio nixed a prospectively intriguing (non-Mandarin) twist that might have also helped the MCU's estrogen drought.

In an interview with Uproxx, Shane Black was properly nostalgic regarding his MCU opportunity, despite more practical memories of it being a rather tumultuous process, especially when it came to interactions with the Marvel. However, dropping a rather fascinating revelation, Black revealed that much of what made the process difficult came from meddling by unnamed Marvel corporate bigwigs. While Iron Man 3 suffered in the villain department, it seems that the original intention in the script that Black co-wrote with Drew Pearce was to unveil a female character as its ultimate big bad! According to Black, Rebecca Hall’s Maya Hansen originally had a larger part in the plot, further explaining:

Quote:
There was an early draft of Iron Man 3 where we had an inkling of a problem. Which is that we had a female character who was the villain in the draft. We had finished the script and we were given a no-holds-barred memo saying that cannot stand and we’ve changed our minds because, after consulting, we’ve decided that toy won’t sell as well if it’s a female.

So, we had to change the entire script because of toy making. Now, that’s not Feige. That’s Marvel corporate, but now you don’t have that problem anymore.

Yeah, Ike’s gone. But New York called and said, “That’s money out of our bank.” In the earlier draft, the woman was essentially Killian – and they didn’t want a female Killian, they wanted a male Killian. I liked the idea, like Remington Steele, you think it’s the man but at the end, the woman has been running the whole show. They just said, “no way.”
Iron Man 3 did, in fact, contain a female villain… two of them, if you count Stephanie Szostak’s Brandt. Yet, according to Black, it was Hall’s Maya Hansen (pictured below) who was supposed to be revealed as the film’s villainous mastermind in a dynamic he compares to the 1982 television series Remington Steele in which Pierce Brosnan’s titular character served as a handsome, sexism-mollifying figurehead for the private detection agency of Stephanie Zimbalist’s Laura Holt. However, the Remington-like plans were nixed after a now-former corporate regime at Marvel (and NOT Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige,) decided that Iron Man 3 needed a villain who could make a more marketable transition as a toy onto the pegs of retail stores.


Of course, the main villain in Iron Man 3 we did get was Guy Pearce’s Aldrich Killian, an old acquaintance of Tony Stark's who utilized a form of advanced nanotechnology called Extremis to turn himself and his lackeys into flame-spitting, hot-to-the-touch super-powered people. Meanwhile, the final version of the film’s Remington Steele twist ditched the feminist approach and took Ben Kingsley’s heavily hyped role as Iron Man’s best-known comic book nemesis The Mandarin and turned it into one of cinema’s most reviled twists, revealed simply as feckless actor serving as a front and working as Killian’s catspaw.

Hall’s Hansen, a character adapted from Marvel Comics’ originally inspiring “Extremis” storyline, was ultimately depicted in the film with a similar arc in which she betrayed Tony Stark by initially aiding Killian’s conspiracy, only to regret her actions later, followed by a sacrificial moment of redemption. However, it seems that the Maya Hansen villain angle – one of a few plot planned twists – was steamrolled by what Black calls “Marvel corporate” over the absurdly in-the-box, (arguably sexist) motivation of male-minded toy marketing.

While the women-deprived merchandising woes of major tent-pole films has obviously been a potent topic in recent years, the idea that a myopic merchandising tail could wag the proverbial dog of the film’s plot is actually rather shocking and disappointing. Regardless of how the nixed "evil Maya" twist might have ultimately played out, it seems to be yet another thing that contributed to Iron Man 3's status as one of the MCU’s black sheep entries. Ironically enough, the hypothetical Aldrich Killian merchandise that allegedly had such a profound influence on the film's plot ended up being virtually nonexistent.

It would've been better than what we actually got: Human Torch "Mandarin".

Not original to me, but I bet those Killian figures were just FLYING off the shelves.

You can really tell that movie was mucked around with quite a lot. Shame, because since it still ended up being good it could have been GREAT.
