Ben Kingsly is in the final stage of talks to play the villain in the forthcoming Iron Man 3. Unfortunately it appears there is already confirmation that we won’t see him as the Mandarin. I don’t think I have a problem with that though. Call me crazy, but wasn’t the Mandarin…Asain?
It does however, look like Kingsley could be the man behind the spread of the nanobot virus loosely based on the six-issue “Extremis” comic run in 2005.
Thanks to Mr. Ruddy for the heads up.
