** While [[spoiler:Killian]] admits it's a flimsy excuse on their part to justify the assassination, exactly how responsible ''was'' the President in keeping oil barons out of prison after they caused a major oil spill?
** A popular theory about the Mandarin is that [[spoiler:Trevor Slattery was all just an act so he would get a reduced prison sentence, and that he used the mind control ring on Killian to have him say he's the real Mandarin]]. Of course, this was later {{Jossed}} in ''All Hail the King'', where it was revealed that [[spoiler:there is a real Mandarin who is upset that Slattery impersonated him]].
* AuthorsSavingThrow: In the Film/{{Marvel One Shot|s}} ''All Hail The King'', [[spoiler:it's revealed that the ''real'' Mandarin is still out there and is neither Trevor nor Killian, thus saving the character for those who did not like the twist]]. Ironically, this was ''not'' done due to negative fan reaction, as it was already planned during production of the movie, explaining the plot holes in the first ''Iron Man'' film that would be created if [[spoiler: Killian was the real Mandarin.]]

* CriticalDissonance: Many critics claim this was the best Iron Man movie and possibly better than The Avengers. Fans on the other hand feel this film failed and is one of the worst MCU movies by far.

** Back when ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 The Avengers]]'' debuted at movie theaters, ''Charges.com.br'' character Tobby guessed that their biggest foe would be the Green Goblin. Without the movie rights to [[Franchise/SpiderMan the Spider-Man franchise]], the closest thing that could be used was [[NormanOsborn Norman Osborn's]] other alter ego Iron Patriot.

** The fact that Tony doesn't spend much time "suited up", and vice versa (the Mark 42 and other suits get a lot of screentime without Tony actually inside). While some enjoyed seeing how {{badass}} Tony can be without the suit, others wanted to see Iron Man spend more time as, you know, ''Iron Man'' (and the suit as his armor rather than a remote-controlled robot or a JARVIS-piloted drone).

* VocalMinority: although most online discussion of this movie would have you think it's a universally-despised train wreck that will stain Marvel's cinematic record forever, a quick Google search will tell you it still holds a very respectable 79% audience score on Website/RottenTomatoes and a 7.3/10 on Website/IMDb, meaning the vast majority of viewers liked it, and its overall reception was squarely ''average'' for the MCU.

** As mentioned in BaseBreaker, Killian still has similar motivations to the previous ''Iron Man'' villains; [[spoiler:a fellow visionary/scientist who has a vendetta against Tony]].

Added DiffLines:

** A common argument to defend this movie's take on the Mandarin and the changes compared to the source material was that comic book Mandarin was a YellowPeril villain making him too much of a caricature to be adapted nowadays. A few years later, [[Series/{{Daredevil}} Another MCU installment]] would actually get criticisms for giving this treatment to its asian villains.

Added DiffLines:

** Tony telling a kid who wears big glasses "I loved you in ''Film/AChristmasStory'', by the way," because the kid reminds him of Ralphie Parker. Peter Billigsley, who played Ralphie Parker in ''ACS'', has a small role as a scientist/engineer in the first ''Film/IronMan''.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Probably the most polarizing film in the entire MarvelCinematicUniverse as of Phase 2. Opinions tend to be very enthusiastic in either direction, with few in the middle.
