Three things I noticed watching 'Iron Man' again

1. They used the wrong 'reins' on the fake cover of Fortune (or Forbes, whatever it was). 'Tony Stark Takes the Reigns'.

2. The main terrorist bad guy, Raza, was played by the same guy who played the captain of the USS Kelvin (Faran Tahir).

3. Peter Billingsley (Ralphie from 'A Christmas Story') played Stane's lead scientist!

Maybe they were trying to be cute with homonyms ("Reigning" over his kingdom, taking Reign with the Reins, etc.)?

Or maybe some Hollywood writers flunked English.... (And probably don't even know the difference between 'compliment' and 'complement'!)

i doubt they were trying to be cute. i think the FX people just screwed up (your second option ;-)
