The Mandarin to Have Different Origins in "Iron Man 3"

Posted: October 24th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
The Mandarin to Have Different Origins in "Iron Man 3"Submit Comment
In the recently released "Iron Man 3" trailer, we got a look at The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. The character is an international terrorist, who wears Ten Rings, which symbolize his terrorist organization that kidnapped Tony Stark in the first "Iron Man" film.

According to Marvel head Kevin Feige, in the third movie, The Mandarin will have a different backstory from the comics, in which he was a Chinese exile who discovers a crashed alien ship and harnesses the power of the 10 rings to unleash havoc on the world.

Feige explained that the rings won't create ice rays or fire beams, but they will definitely have a use. And despite the fact that "Iron Man 3" takes place after "The Avengers," there won't be an alien presence in the film of any kind.

And all the better for it. What works on the comic book page does not always translate well to the big screen. Yeah, the Iron Man/Avengers film universe has already established Norse gods, aliens and other dimensions, but piling on yet another nonsensical alien-engery-power-ring-thingy-whatever just isn't necessary.

The Mandarin they've got here still might be mystical in some ways or his rings still might have some technological use, but I'm glad they toned it down a bit so that Stark is fighting a mostly Earthly terrorist dude.

I tell you what his 10 rings are for. To add weight to his fists when he knocks a motherf*cker out.
