Jon Favreau Wants The Mandarin in "Iron Man 3"

Jon Favreau Wants The Mandarin in "Iron Man 3"Submit Comment
Jon Favreau sat down with MTV and revealed that there is a good chance that Mandarin will be the main villain in "Iron Man 3," something he wasn't able to do in the previous two installments.

"By the time 'Iron Man 3' happens, you will have had three other superheroes revealing themselves at least, in addition to SHIELD. and Black Widow and whoever they have in 'Avengers,'" he explained. "So now you're going into a world where you open up the paper and you're reading about villains and heroes and a lot of people with different types of powers. Everything was tech-based in 'Iron Man,' but the world is opening up very much."

Favreau feels that the magical elements in "Thor" mean that he is finally able to introduce The Mandarin. "I hope so," he said. "Because all my stuff was tech-based, and now you have other worlds and inter-dimensions and this sense of history which I think is quite cool."

Anybody else think that Jon and Marvel are seriously over thinking this whole tech vs magic sh*t. I mean if its in the comics whats the big problem. I don't see why introducing the magical elements of Thor prior to the Mandarin appearing in IM3 is really that much of an obligation.

In light of recent events..does the "Mandarin" in "IM:3" have to be played by an Asian actor???

If they do, they gotta cut out the Fu Manchu mustache, the Crystal Gayle hair and that mumu that Mandarin wears all the time.

We want him menacing, not GAY.

@Max. Yikes. So no Ken Jeong? Hehe. He would be a delightfully bitchy Mandarin.

They're not overthinking anything with a $200 million budget. Mandarin is one goofy ass character, but he's Iron Man's worst foe. They have to sell it or else people will find it corny as hell. They'll go expecting to see fighting robots and see something more like Lord of the Rings.
The right way to do this is to connect the Mandarin's alien technology to whatever alien characters they have in Avengers... whether it's Asgardians or Skrulls or whatever. Maybe have flashbacks of SHIELD and Howard Stark working on secret alien projects (sort of like Transformers' Sector 7).
