Will Faran Tahir be Mandarin in "Iron Man 3"?

Will Faran Tahir be Mandarin in "Iron Man 3"?Submit Comment
Faran Tahir, who played Raza in the first "Iron Man" film, spoke with StarPulse about the future of his character and whether fans will ever see him become the villainous Mandarin.

"My answer to that is that we created the character, not by accident, but by design, with a vague future," said Tahir. "You can spin it many different ways and it should make sense, was the idea. One is this guy who has a connection to Mandarin at some point... or is this guy someone who might become Mandarin at some point? There's a case to be made -- and a pretty good one -- that two guys, who in the belly of a cave, almost like a womb, emerge out of that womb and one becomes Iron Man and one becomes Mandarin."

He continued: "I think that's why they left the character open. If you remember the movie, [Raza] doesn't die. The same thing happened to Tony Stark: He gets paralyzed then comes back out of it."

So will Tahir be in the new "Iron Man" sequel? "So far I don't think I'm in it," he said. "Things change very quickly. I know the direction that they're going in for the second one and to be very honest, it makes sense. They're going in a different direction, a different part of the world, a whole other challenge for Iron Man. If I do end up being in it, it will just to keep that story alive. If they do that."

So while there is no current plan for him to show up in "Iron Man 2," Tahir feels confident that he will be brought back in a future installment. "If you're going to do a movie about Iron Man, you will have to, at some point, address Mandarin," he said. "We don't know when or how. They had asked me to be available for later times, if need be. So, we will see."

They should get Oded Fehr, I think he did awesome in Showtime's "Sleeper Cell" and if they going to go with a Middle Eastern actor I think he would be great. This guy can come back, just as a subordinate. He really didn't have that many lines in Iron Man and he may be hurting his chances by how much he is talking about coming back. This same story was on the site last week!
