Default Re: Ben Kingsley is The Mandarin!

I tend to agree that Marvel did not want to offend a huge market in China by having one of their biggest movie characters arch enemies being Chinese, we live in a PC world whether we like it or not.
Casting Kingsley as Mandarin is a bold move, but I like as a life long Iron Man fan and collector the new more realistic approach to Mandarin, Kingsley is without a doubt one of the finest actors of our generation, and all his performances are incredible, no matter how poor the movies themselves have been, he has stood out. This is a man who likes playing the villian, even stating he wanted to be a bond villian.
So, personally, I am thilled by what I have seen thus far and can not wait for the film.
