"Iron Man 3" Director Calls The Mandarin a Racist Caricature

Posted: October 31st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Iron Man 3" Director Calls The Mandarin a Racist CaricatureSubmit Comment
At the Long Beach Comic-Con, director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) answered some questions about the third "Iron Man" film, revealing that Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle will return as Pepper Potts and James Rhodes.

Regarding villains, Black said that Iron Man never really had good villains. When an audience member suggested the Mandarin, the helmer dismissed the character as a racist caricature.

He also said that the story will not involve "The Avengers," which director Jon Favreau believes hurt the second installment. "We really want to make it Tony's movie," said Black, adding that he requested for Favreau to return as Happy Hogan. And if everything works out, he would also love for Stan Lee to make a cameo.

Marvel won't let that happen. They probably want to set the scene for a second Avengers.

Well since it's Shane Black - the most awesome Hollwood writer, he can say what ever he wants and be correct. Therefore i agree with him.

P.S. make Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2

the Mandarin is racist but a Tyler Perry or Will Smith movie isnt.

doesnt mean that Shane Black is gonna do a better job in the movie cause if they got some *sshole like the guy that wrote the second Iron Man,can still suck Swai's mums d*ck

Iron Man 2 failed because of Downey. He was the one who brought that faggot writer and replaced the previous ones from the first movie and this time also he brought his friend. I have 0 faith in this right now! Better not f*ck this up, Shane.

I do agree wth Shane that The Avengers storyline did hurt the second Iron Man movie and that Iron Man 3 should be Tony's movie and have a little mention of The Avengers which might set up The Avengers 2.

I hope Shane gets Stan Lee to do a cameo apperance in Iron Man 3.

If Shane doesn't include The Mandarin in Iron Man 3 then which villain will be the main bad guy in Iron Man 2.

I hope Iron Man 3 will better than the second movie and great as the first one.

@Dirt

I hope that he can lose weight. He needs to get back on track with his acting career.

Hard to argue his point.

Mandarin is a racist caricature.

And sounds like when Marvel and Joss Whedon came into the room and started telling Shane Black that he had to have the Avengers involved in his Iron Man 3 project, he pretty much told them to f*ck themselves...

Even said he'd like to bring back the original director for his Happy Hogan role.

Heck he probably tried to get Terrence Howard back as well.

But Cheadle will work for the bus fair home, and Howard wanted his own private jet...that was made out of solid gold.

Oh I'd love to have been a fly on the wall if that meeting actually occurred. Joss Whedon with all of Marvel's support and backing.

Letting Shane Black know that he would be coordinating and doing slight rewriting on all the Avenger related Marvel movies. So that all the movies synced up and flowed together.

And Shane Black telling him to go f*ck himself.

Iron man is a sexist egomaniac but you're happy using him as a role model mate.

I bet there’s gonna be a seen where Tony has to help Rhodes leap off a toilet sit rigged with C-4.

Ok, i just read at IGN that Shane Black doesn't want to adapt "Demon in a bottle" storyline?!?!

What the hell? That is one of the best Iron Man stories (if not the best)
