John Cho is The Mandarin in "Iron Man 2"?

John Cho is The Mandarin in "Iron Man 2"?Submit Comment
Earlier this month "Iron Man 2" writer Justin Theroux revealed that the villain for the upcoming sequel will be announced during next year's Comic-Con. But thanks to Entertainment Weekly's sources, we don't have to wait that long.

EW is reporting that John Cho (Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle) has been cast as the Mandarin in "Iron Man 2" and Tommy Chong (Up in Smoke) is being eyed to play the Mandarin's father, who claims to be the real genius responsible for the success of Howard Stark, Tony's dad. And if you remember from before, Howard Stark is being rumored to be played by Tim Robbins.

These are obviously rumors, which means that they may be right or may be wrong. I am leaning toward the latter.

Do you think that John Cho would be right for the Mandarin role?

As much as I like John Cho I dont think he belongs in the superhero realm of films. He's in the new Star Trek which makes sense to a degree because we shouldnt condemn an actor/actress to a certain genre before they do it. I'm not up to par on who the Mandarin is so who really knows at this point.

Jet Li is a better choice, at least he is Chinese like Mandarin.

Why not use Chow Yun Fat? He does a good job in those kind of roles... egg-roles. John Cho's better at comedies. He's funny, but it would be hard to take him seriously.

its tommy chong...not chung and i have a feeling that this is just an internet rumor, as it seemed that the mandarin was to be of arab descent in this incarnation

The Mandarin needs someone with a stronger screen presence. Nothing against Cho though.
