In the movie he's not Chinese, he just really likes oranges.

I was going to say, he looks like a refugee from Middle Earth.


Would it really have been so terrible to cast a Chinese actor as the Mandarin?

Not unless the Mandarin in the movie isn't Chinese. Not every supervillain has to be a foreigner, you. :)

The plot is unknown at this time. Rumor has it Tony Stark/Iron Man will head to China to face his toughest opponent, Mandarin.


Filming began on May 23, 2012 and it was shot primarily in North Carolina, with additional filming scheduled to take place in Florida and China.


Iron Man 3, which is similarly a U.S.-China co-production. Except that with Iron Man 3, it could be a more fundamental reworking of the film for Chinese audiences. That's the speculation, anyway.

Ben Kingsley is Topol as The Mandarin.
At least it's not as ridiculous as when he was The Hood.

Somehow they've muddled up his character to avoid making the Chinese upset about him being a stereotype. He probably is some sort of kingpin in China called that but not Chinese.

I guess Tony will be trying to take back Winterfell in this movie.
