What if The Mandarin attacks his own people, with Iron Man and his Chinese allies coming to their aid?

Mandarin *does* attack his own people. Comic books, I mean. He actually spends most of his career terrorizing China and fighting the government and military while trying to take over the country for himself.

So I can't really see why China would have the film banned, so long as the movie doesn't paint its government and people in a bad light.

And you are sure China is OK with the idea of a half-white Englishman/half-Indian playing the Mandarin?

Good news.
I like Fan Bingbing.
She was great in Sophie's Revenge.
Which is NOT a sequel to Sophie's Choice by the way.

So Andy Lau is in the movie but not Mandarin? That does not make any sense. This guy was so good in Infernal Affairs and House of Flying Daggers.

The rumor is that Ben Kingsley is playing the Mandarin.

Andy Lau is one of my favorite actors ever. I'm glad he is in IM 3.

Apparently he would have been playing a version of Chen Lu/Radioactive Man.

That true? I had a suspicion that might be who he'd play, but I haven't seen any reports to that effect.

Is there any reason why Andy Lau pulled out of IM3? I'd love to have seen him in a huge blockbuster like this.

His wife is having a baby.


This thread needs a title change.

Maybe he should've pulled out of her

I kid, congrats to them both, shame he won't be in it. Be interesting to see whether they recast or just scrap the character from the film.

The same Chinese newspaper that reported Andy Lau in the first place also reported on three potential replacements who are already being auditioned. I'm sorry I don't keep up with Chinese cinema so I don't recognize their names, but it sounded like their credentials were adequate.
