Saw it again this weekend. Enjoyed it even more the second time around, even though the theater was a terrible experience. This was the most disgustingly misconverged digital projection I've ever seen in a professional cinema. At least Cinemark gave me a refund. So if I was able to enjoy it at all in that enviroment, that says alot for me. I would have left, but I brought my parents with me and I didn't want to drag my Mom out of the theater since she said she couldn't see the problem.
Anyway, I'm not sure it's likely that there is much more to Trevor. Maybe, but nothing really jumped out at me on the second viewing that I didn't catch on the first viewing.
I didn't notice the cool chinese dragon tatoos on Killian/Mandarin the first time around. But I caught them on this viewing. Killian had said something along the lines of a "mandarian" being an "advisor to the King" or something like that, and one of the definitions of mandarin is "a person of position and influence". Killian's plan was to own the war on terror with the (Vice)President as his puppet in one hand and controling a terror organization with the other. So again, for those that that might be confused thinking that there was no real Mandarin (hat he was just an actor), there certainly was. The public face was a misdirection, but Killian was "The Mandarin". And he was a pretty significant foil for Stark.
In Ton'y voice over at the end, he said that after he got Pepper "sorted out" he thought "why stop there?" and went on to deal with his shrapnel problem. What do you think the "sorted out" means for Pepper? Do you think he managed to completely remove Extremis from Pepper, or did he figure out how to stablize it? Is Pepper going to continue to have superpowers in future films? I did read somewhere that someone in Marvel, Feige maybe, said this may not be the last we see of Extremis.
