Default Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2

^ Actually, it wasn't really a Marvel thing. At least not overall. it was entirely Shane Black's idea. Favreau's original plan was to have a Mandarin closer to Kingsley's Mandarin (as the real Mandarin, that is). Later concepts after he left the franchise went back to a similar concept until Shane Black came in and brought in the idea of the twist.
