Ironman 3
« on: April 16, 2012, 03:05:52 PM »
I have no clue who has all heard about this yet, but appearently part of Iron Man 3 will be filmed in China. Does this mean Mandarin will finally get his shot at the ol Shellhead? Then again they could just give him a handfull and me a fangasm, by having Ironman take on both the Mandarin and Fin Fang Foom!

Like the old Tom Petty song says...The waiting is the hardest part.

Well the director has dismissed the Mandarin as a 'racist caricature'. The news has also mention Ben Kingsley as the 'villain' of the piece.

Well, that sucks.... Maybe I can still get lucky with Fin Fang Foom. I guess directors just never like to give fans what they want, or they do and don't put any work into them... -stares menicingly at Sam Raimy-

What I heard is that they will do the Extremis arc, which was written by Warren Ellis and, indeed, features the Mandarin (who was pretty kickass in that story).

It'd be very odd for them to set up the Ten Rings syndicate hints in the first movie and never resolve them.

I guess we'll just have to wait for more info then. Still I don't see how the Mandarin would be a racist villian. The majority of Marvel villians happen to be white, and if I remember right at least half of the Shellheads villians were Russian.

As long as he isn't wearing Kirby era pants.

Yeah I really don't get that either.  If anything he's a staunch traditionalist who reveres ancient Chinese culture more than many modern citizens do.  I fail to see how that's racist (nevermind that this is another example of the word 'racist' being used improperly.  The correct term is 'a caricature that promotes prejudice').
