In Iron Man 3, Aldrich Killian introduces himself to Tony Stark and the two of them (along with numerous partygoers) end up in an elevator together.
As everyone is leaving the elevator, Tony quietly says to Killian that he is fascinated by the idea of working with him and will meet him on the roof later to discuss it.
Of course, he never shows.
My question is, in saying this to Killian, was Tony serious?
- just get distracted by women and booze (completely plausible)? Or,
- was he doing it maliciously to get rid of a pest (also somewhat plausible)?
