Not with Shane Black, that's for sure.
I'd definitely want an Asian actor in the role. It could be an update just like Wo Fat has been in Hawaii Five-0 where Iron Chef
Mark Dacascos is playing the role in a far more layered way than the original 60s version.
Mandarin doesn't have to be a stereotype. There are plenty of ways they could've done it without having to resort to a Fu Manchu moustache.
He certainly could've been far more dangerous and relentless that's for sure, and someone who is full of mystery.
