Default Re: Mandarin discussion thread

Now wait a minute...it's not like they avoided making Ivan Vanko a Russian in IRON MAN 2. Why would they suddenly avoid having The Mandarin be Asian? That strikes me as racism spotting where there is none. There have been PLENTY of Asian, French, German and British vilains that studios have had few issues using over the years. The Mandarin is just one more of them. Why would there suddenly be an issue with this one? The comics have made several adjustments to his themes, origins and nature, and I'd imagine a film would have to do the same, and would.
