Re: Ben Kingsley is The Mandarin!
remember Vanko's prison tattoos in IM2? thoroughly made the character better but for no real reason. There was never a close up enough view during the movie to read or comprehend them, but just the sheer concept and attention to detail made the character more real. That could be what happens with Mandarins rings. I'd prefer an explanation but even without it the movie could be good.
