Default Re: Ben Kingsley is The Mandarin!

LOVE Mandarin's image and what they've done with him. The uber-terrorist. Glad they ditched the Fu Manchu and Jet Li imagery from the comics; those stereotypes definitely don't belong in the 21st century.

Also, Mandarin's background has been personally revealed right here on the SHH front page by Feige himself. Pretty spoilery stuff there, so read at your own risk.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I like the backstory, though. Mandarin is an ex-agent --- wonder if they'll specify CIA or SHIELD or something else --- who had an attack of conscience, so to speak, and went all Col. Kurtz. Makes him crazy, crazy scary, and more believable at the same time.
