'Iron Man 3': Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin

Posted on

Iron Man Poster

We still don’t know very much about the Mandarin, the villain in this summer’s Iron Man 3 played by Ben Kingsley. In the comic books, the character was a Chinese man who variously used alien technology and magic in his ongoing attempts to conquer and/or destroy the world. In a new poster tweeted by Marvel, the Kingsley character certainly looks quite a bit different: He wears the Mandarin’s ten rings, but his outfit sort of suggests Osama Bin Laden going to a Last Emperor theme party. He also has a totally sweet set of shades. Check out the image below:
