I for one completely loathe Ironman 3. So I am willing to give Fox Studios the benefit of the doubt. Even had they stayed entirely hands-off during the entire film making, this would have still turned into a complete Shane Black style Movie with a Predator. With even more terrible decisions, had they stuck to the original 3rd act. In my opinion, there was no salvaging this Movie, when the problems with it started in the inception stages.
