Soooo....I'm guessing The Mandarin? Especially with rumors of the Ben Kingsley casting...

I thought Kingsley was the baddy in the new star trek movie

Honestly, the Mandarin is all they got left and he was really the only interesting villain in Iron Man's gallery of rogues. It would make an interesting closure to a trilogy and maybe end it on a high note.

If it's being co-produced in China, then there's no doubt it's The Mandarin.

So I assume they'll be changing the character's name from The Mandarin to The Gujarati? :sarcasm:

I hope Ben Kingsley isn't the villain. No one has phoned in more genre film villain roles than Kingsley. He's a great actor who almost never bothers to be one.

I thought it was rumoured that its going to be the Extremis plotline and Kingsley is playing Mallen.

True...I'm still having a hard time wiping his roles in Love Guru and Prince of Persia out of my mind.

i really like kingsley i think its very likely he is the manadarin

Takeo 04-22-2012 08:42 PM

Iron Man 2 was one of the worst films I've seen. I guess profit precludes the concept of stopping while you're ahead. Ah well.

His role in 'Sexy Beast' says otherwise.

speaking of which I think the mandarin could take the same twist as thor did with magic. Advanced science that people didn't realize ?

Jussi 05-01-2012 08:45 PM

I could see an Infinity Gem being a part of this, even if only in the post credits scene.

There are rumors about the casting of Andy Lau (original Infernal Affairs) as a scientist.

Makes sense, shouldn't be unless there's a good reason storywise.

Having seen The Avengers, Black Widow definitely deserves her own film.

Obviously, I'd be first in line, I just wonder if studios have faith in a female driven superhero film.

Have Joss Wheedon direct it, can't be worse than Elektra. Not to mention that it wouldn't have to be nearly as high budget as the other Avenger's own films. ScarJo in a tight leather outfit alone should fill more than a few seats. :laugh:

I'm glad Scarlet Johansen won't be in Iron Man 3; I'm sorry but they absolutely ruined the Black Widow.

She was/is a Cold War character. The fact that she didn't even have a Russian accent or give any history of her Russian background was an insult to longtime comic fans. The whole lure of the character was she was a Russian spy working with the Western World and that there was always this fear/possibility that she cold turn at any second. Can't do that in the post USSR but they could've at least made her Russian. Sheesh.

Takeo-I agree Iron Man 2 wasn't a very good movie. Superhero movies are all about the bad guys and how they will challenge the hero and make them suffer/have to deal with a conflict and change. In no way shape or form did I feel Tony Stark was ever in any danger during this movie.

They addressed a little bit of that in Avengers...and added some depth to her skills and abilities. So I think a Black Widow movie based on her character from the existing Marvel movie universe would work.

We can also rule out another character coming back for Iron Man 3... :(
