Like the majority of you, we are very much looking forward to seeing the Mandarin, when Iron Man 3 is released later this year. From what we have seen and heard of the Mandarin in the movie, it looks like he could be a great villain and Marvel President Kevin Feige has been talking about the character.
Feige explained to MTV, “We felt there was leeway to explore the Mandarin in a way that hasn’t been explored before. We found we couldn’t point to any sort of definitive Mandarin story in the comics, but if you print this, I’m sure a million fans will point to a specific story.”
He added, “So as we’ve done with many of the films, we did an amalgamation. The Mandarin is relentless: he’s a non-stop threat, and you’ve seen that in the first teaser trailer when Tony Stark’s house tumbles into the sea. He doesn’t mess around, this guy.”
Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau and has been written and directed by Shane Black. Iron Man 3 is set to be released on April 26 in the UK and on May 3 in the US.
