Kingsley as Mandarin

"Ladies, children… sheep. Some people call me a terrorist, I consider myself a teacher." What. A. Badass. Marvel has unveiled the fourth character poster (via Facebook) for Iron Man 3, another one we have to feature. This time the "mysterious" Mandarin, played by Sir Ben Kingsley, gets his own poster, and his own chair, and some incense, and a really nifty jacket, and his own temple. Considering the last two were really bad character poses, this is a big step up, which makes complete sense considering it is The Mandarin and he is going to kick Iron Man's ass all over the place this summer. Going to be awesome! Check him out.

      Dat Helmet.

      The only thing missing from it are big gold chains around his neck and drifts of dollar bills at his feet.

    so digital...awful
  • nate
    Wow, this looks hilarious. It's a combination of Fidel Castro and Pitbull. Very bad costume design and pose.

    Jack Sparrow's uncle.
  • Could have Worked, but the Sun Glasses are so out of
    • My take is, since the room is full of trophies, those are Stark's glasses.
      • Good shout
      • David Banner
        That's it, Stark's sunglasses. The helmet, any idea?
        • Gohikeone
          Captain America's? Or UN Peacekeeper??
  • I think it looks bad-ass, he looks like a militarized monk.
  • truong18
    they spend two hundred million dollars to make this movie, and this is the best they could come up with, it a joke.
  • It looks like if someone pooped in his head....
    IRON MAN 3 (In The Hood).
  • LosZombies
    Is that Captain America's helmet??
    • Gohikeone
      That was my first thought when I saw it...of course it would be an "old" Cap helmet...interesting. Think it is done to throw a little misdirection our way?
      • JBrotsis
        There was an article I read that did a scene by scene of the first trailer to IR3 and in one of the scenes, when Mandarin is taking off his hood or something, on the back of his neck is a tattoo of Capt's shield but instead of a star in the middle it was the letter "A" (whatever that means). So maybe the helmet is Capt's.
        • Gohikeone
          That image really threw me for a loop when I first saw it after the trailer was released. I try to stay away from any plot description stuff outside the trailers, so I haven't read much of anything about the tattoo. However, it paired with this new image of the blue helmet is very interesting indeed! If it truly is Cap's helmet and not a Blueberry UN helmet, there could be some epic story stuff coming our way very soon...
    • Gohikeone
      Here's a screen grab of Cap's from the movie...although as others have pointed out, it does resemble a UN Peacekeeper helmet...which is more likely I think.
  • I just lost interest in this movie.
