I'm pretty sure most of them are not Mandarin fans, they are "fans" of the Nolan-esque Mandarin they saw in the trailers. . . and by that I mean they had visions of "finally, a movie we can take seriously!"
Which is to say, they weren't, and aren't, fans at all. They became fans only when it looked like they might get a darker and edgier movie, to finally wash away all that icky poo optimism and heroism that 'infects' the franchise.
