IRON MAN 3: New Image Of The Mandarin Officially Released

We've already seen a scan of this pic from Entertainment Weekly magazine, now Marvel have officially released a much clearer still of Ben Kingsley, displaying his distinctive taste in jewelry as the villainous Mandarin..

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? Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black.

Didn't we already see this one?
Invictor - 11/1/2012, 2:55 PM
This pic looks pretty cool and mystical. Fist pump!
KaneVonDoom - 11/1/2012, 2:56 PM
Looks good but what is on his shirt?
Invictor - 11/1/2012, 2:58 PM
I was thinking the same thing Kane, the only thing I see is NS and either DEC, DEO, NEC, or NEO
Invictor - 11/1/2012, 2:59 PM
But hey, the guy likes his bling!
Invictor - 11/1/2012, 3:00 PM
@Prot3ctor, he was probably looking at Stark's house getting blown to bits
Invictor - 11/1/2012, 3:04 PM
Not sure, don't know much about Mandarin, he's probably the only villain I don't know that much about.

marvel72 - 11/1/2012, 3:06 PM
looks alright,i hope we get to see him in a full chinese robe/gown just like in the comics.
KaneVonDoom - 11/1/2012, 3:12 PM
That would be insane if they put Fin Fang Foom in this flick. It would be a smart move if they ended up doing him justice... Good eye on the glasses though, Prot3ctor. Those do look like Stark's.
KaneVonDoom - 11/1/2012, 3:15 PM
@marvel72 & Prot3ctor, I have a feeling they will go the Masters of Evil route and have Thanos as a larger picture type character in the background, Emperor Palpatine style and have him unleash in the third.

Like his costume...curious to see if his rings are as powerful in the movie.
DioFoRio - 11/1/2012, 3:50 PM
Kiss the ring bitch
ALmighty1080 - 11/1/2012, 3:55 PM
isnt the mandarin suppose to be able to fight? i cant picture this guy fighting iron man.
DioFoRio - 11/1/2012, 4:04 PM
I never heard if he was a good fighter but word on the street is he makes a killer General Tsaos ....
Invictor - 11/1/2012, 4:36 PM
Someone should put this article on main!
KaneVonDoom - 11/1/2012, 5:21 PM
Radioactive Man has been cast in IM3 as well and he's a classic MoE member.
foxfan - 11/1/2012, 6:51 PM
the rings are awesome :)
FanboyTrump - 11/1/2012, 6:53 PM
Mandarin is two steps ahead of us on no shave November
Maximus101 - 11/1/2012, 7:00 PM
That outfit looks like something you would see in the hobbit or LOTR lol

@elchavo it's supposed to be a mustache not a beard for November.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 11/1/2012, 7:02 PM
Let's hope these rings don't suck like a certain other CBM...

StephenStrange - 11/1/2012, 7:17 PM
Mandy's lookin mean!
HULK2099 - 11/1/2012, 7:21 PM
He looks too epic, wonder if he's gonna give Loki a run for his money
BlackCat1 - 11/1/2012, 7:39 PM
I'm sure he'll be phuckin awesome but I don't love his look at all, I'm used to seeing Mandarin look much different. I'm not feeling it but I have faith in Marvel, Shane Black and Ben Kingsley. EXCITED.!!!
SymbioteJoker - 11/1/2012, 7:43 PM
Bring on Fing Fang Foom!
eleven59 - 11/1/2012, 7:47 PM
Masters of evil is possible.. Look at how many extra "villains" there are in both cap and iron man... Any from Thor? Wheres enchantress and the ultron!!
eleven59 - 11/1/2012, 7:49 PM
I meant "and then ultron" lol
Superheromovies2000 - 11/1/2012, 7:58 PM
He looks like Osama Bin Laden.. Just saying!!
NextHero08 - 11/1/2012, 8:11 PM
Not sure I like the old age look...
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 11/1/2012, 8:27 PM
@Nomis and @Kamen -

Lmao!! ;P
averageBEAR - 11/1/2012, 8:44 PM
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH yeah im diggin it he's officially bad ass BK looks great and FIN FANG FOOM in the back
bbarber2323 - 11/1/2012, 8:44 PM
What ever happened to that billboard of Fing Fam Foom in IM2??
mgeoff88 - 11/1/2012, 8:46 PM
Great find on the HQ photo!

His rings must not be functional yet since he has an AK-47 leaning up against the left arm of his chair.

Like I said before, he looks bad ass!
mgeoff88 - 11/1/2012, 8:57 PM
@ironkidd That looks like a traditional Chinese dragon. A nod to Fin Fang Foom would be great though. :)
1ncredibleJ0C - 11/1/2012, 9:20 PM
the rings are linked to an ancient chinese spell of a dragon FING FANG FOOM i can see it happening thts a great way to go it kinda puts that thor magic and science thing together cool
Jollem - 11/1/2012, 10:32 PM

looks like that dwarf kept all the 10 rings to himself :)
RamonSuarez - 11/1/2012, 10:57 PM
