Re: Mandarin discussion thread
I'll resoundingly echo the agreements here. We definitely do not want a SM3 debacle.
If S.Black does not want to do it don't force it upon him. If then MARVEL STUDIOS is determined to portray the Mandarin let it be in IM4 with another director. I do think IRON MAN fans deserve to get their characters arch-nemesis portrayed cinematically.
Portraying the Mandarin as not a racist caricature is very easy.
He could be portrayed as a shrewd businessman who was nicknamed the Mandarin because of his tendency to dress in traditional Chinese garb at certain functions.
