IRON MAN 3: Designs For Mandarin's Rings & Pepper Potts' Shrapnel Necklace
Andrea Dopaso illustrated props for Shane Black's box office hit, Iron Man 3. She designed rings for The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and a necklace for Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). Come check them out!
People have been coming out in droves to see Marvel's latest film, Iron Man 3. But, the film's success at the box office doesn't mean all is well. Moviegoers have been divided upon the film's big twist, which is Ben Kingsley's Mandarin isn't really the Mandarin. But in fact Trevor Slattery, a drunken British actor hired by Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) to give Evil a face. So, those rings that Trevor/Mandarin wears, are purely decorative.
With that out of the way, let's appreciate some wonderfully beautiful and intricate designs for The Mandarin's rings, that were created by Andrea Dopaso.
Near the end of Iron Man 3, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has the shrapnel surgically removed from his chest. Then the film cuts away to a scene of Tony placing a necklace, with a heart-shaped pendant, around Pepper Potts' neck. That piece of jewelry is actually supposed to be made from Tony's shrapnel fragments that had been recently extracted. Sadly, none of Andrea's lovely designs below were used in the film.
Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black, and will hit theaters May 3, 2013! The film stars: Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.
