When I heard that Ben Kingsley was going to be in Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3,” I was hoping that he would appear as the Mandarin, especially since the character has been teased since the first film (The ‘Ten Rings’ organization). Well, it appears that someone has come to their senses, because rumors have it that Kingley will definitely be playing the Mandarin.
This is really cool, and hopefully will get the memory of the ‘Hood’ out of my head, from 2004’s “Thunderbirds.”
That picture isn’t all that bad, though, trust me, he looked really silly in the movie.
I should also mention that the ‘Iron Man’ movies need to move beyond armored villains. If you go to the link at Collider, you’ll see another suit of armor that Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) will probably not be wearing), though I would have thought that “Iron Man 2” had enough armored suits for five sequels.
