OK, fine. But even presuming that JR Jr was giving us a supersonic freeze frame (which I don't think is the case, but I will concede for the sake of argument), Iron Man DEFINITELY saw him coming, and DEFINITELY had time to say "Oh Hell." It DEFINITELY takes more than 0.004 seconds to say "Oh Hell." And 0.004 seconds is all Iron Man needs to react to something. So the Hulkbuster armor simply does NOT have the reaction time of the Extremis armor.

I can go with that- the counter argument is Stark just froze. Unlikely but not impossible.
I'd say Hulk was moving very very quickly and accurately and Stark would have been more likely to have time to get out of the way with Extremis but not 100% certainty of avoidance.
I will say that Extremis looks and seems more manuverable than Hulkbuster.
But then the entire battle would have been different. What if's keep hurting my head >_
