It looks like Iron Man 3 will be coming in two different versions. One is the normal one, and the other one is the Chinese version with extra footage.
Marvel Studios and DMG, a Chinese media company, have collaborated on the Chinese material in the film. Chinese actor Wang Xueqi will be appearing in both versions.
So what’s the extra footage? It will be of China’s top actress, Fan Bingbing. Hmmm, will she be playing Fin Fang Foom?
So far Marvel’s experience in China has been positive, and it may be likely that future collaboration is in store for China’s celebrity actors.
Iron Man 3 hits U.S. theaters without Fan Bingbing on May 3, 2013.
