Ben Kingsley Is Your As-Yet-Undetermined Iron Man 3 Villain


Sir Ben Kingley, who is a great actor but who has appeared in a shit-ton of embarrassingly bad movies despite being knighted (seriously, if you work with Uwe Boll, you should have all honors redacted) is going to be the villain for Iron Man 3…. but apparently he’s not playing the Mandarin. For some reason. I honestly don’t have the faintest clue who he’ll be otherwise, and I don’t know why writer/director Shane black wouldn’t use the Mandarin since the first two movies have kind of been building up to him and the Mandarin is Iron Man’s best-known (if not possibly only known) bad guy. But whatever. If we’re lucky, this means he’s playing Fin Fang Foom. (Via Variety)
