The Iron Man 3 media blitz continues with all-new stillsPosted 12:11 pm on Monday, October 22nd, 2012 by Mark Pacis
On the eve of probably one of the most anticipated days for Iron Man fans, me being one of them, Marvel has released a number of stills (and teaser poster) for the upcoming “technological crisis thriller” including our first look at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin. Check back with us tomorrow when Marvel/Disney finally unveils the first trailer for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, coming May 3rd, 2013!
When talking about the original Chinese ethnicity of The Mandarin, Feige says they wanted to blur the background of this version of The Mandarin. “It’s less about his specific ethnicity than the symbolism of various cultures and iconography that he perverts for his own end,” Feige says. From his samurai hair, to his royal robe, to his bin Laden-esque beard, and the AK-47 he keeps at his side, Kingsley’s interpretation is a hodgepodge of various warrior motifs.
