I believe he was. Would have to watch the movie again to make sure.

I think it's a record company logo. From some obscure punk label. Which would be fitting for an aging anarchist.

***Edit: definitely a record company/band logo. In the hi-def shot (thanks, DCMFresh ), the black T-shirt clearly has the Sony BMG logo at the bottom, and a pic of a bunch of bullets. The logo seems to read "(????)ONS," maybe "WEAPONS," and I can't make out the rest of the words.

LOoks like he got jealous of not having an awesome beard too.

I just noticed in that pic that he's holding a pair of glasses, and an AK is right next to him.

I hope his rings have some kind of powers. It's quite a downgrade from a set of rings to rival Iron Man to a mere AK-47.

Mandarin also looks like he has something tucked into the sash around his waist. The silver end is protruding, and at first I thought it might be a handgun. On second look I'm not sure. Maybe an electronic device or a cellphone?


To me the Mandarin's look is quite striking. He seems to have drawn together an eclectic costume with elements taken from a variety of sources. There is the elaborate robe, which seems finely crafted with a lot of details. The Western shirt and shades are part of the cobbled-together wardrobe. It reflects what Feige said about the Mandarin taking aspects of various cultures that appeal to him and adapting them to his own use.

Raza was, and the disguised guy who handed Vanko the suitcase was, as were all those terrorists we saw in the first film. Those are who I'm referring to. If Justin Hammer and Stane were I'd have to go back and watch, but I'm almost certain they were more or less pawns, not associates.

The t-shirt has .50 BMG ammo on it. Don't know what the writing above it says.

Yeah, it's apparently made by a military supply company, and you can even get yours at Sears.

How did you find that out? Odd to wear a T-shirt, but at least it's not a baseball shirt but something appropriately military.

Also has aviator sunglasses. See, that's why I think he's going to have various looks. It's almost like the sunglasses and T-Shirt were part of some disguise. Maybe he poses as a veteran? Then he ties his hair back, takes off the glasses and dons the robe.

Nice. I googled ammo t-shirts looking for it, but couldn't find anything on the first several pages. So I had just figured they made it up for the movie.

I'm really digging Ben's voice in the trailer. I find myself imitating it A LOT. Anyone else do that?

It's like singing a song you like out loud and to yourself; only you're imitating a voice instead

Haha, yes. I'm barely doing a good impression, but it's just so fun. "SOME PEOPLE CALL ME A TERRORIST, I CONSIDER MYSELF A TEACHER." I might just use it the next time I have to read a poem in class.

If you have a teacher who is particularly difficult, you should say to him "Some people call you a teacher. I consider yourself a terrorist."

I've said his lines loads of times since I saw the trailer. Doesn't even sound like Kingsley. Love it

I just figuered that the round symbol behind him on the wall with the dragon looks like one of his rings on his left hand...
and like someone mentioned i also think the rings are the symbols for each obscour criminal organisation he is the leader of.
They preach to a dragon as well i guess....?
I wonder if he is able to summon him with the rings in this movie or if it stays a nod to the comic stories

I'm pretty proud of myself. I think I have it down pretty pat. At least to me, it sounds like Kingsley

Just shows the different calibers/types of each bullet.

And the tagline itself reads: "DECISIONS DECISIONS --- One Thing's Certain...MAKE 'EM COUNT! Point of Aim + Point Of Impact"
