There’s been a lot of talk about who the main villain will be in Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 and most of the rumors have been surrounding Ben Kingsley.
Collider is now reporting that Ben Kingsley will be playing The Mandarin after all. He’s a character from the comic that can be described as a “silent and veiled” partner to another villain named Aldrich Killian.
Guy Pearce is said to be playing Killian, which would mean Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is going to have his hands full.
Iron Man 3 is scheduled for release on May 3rd, 2013 and the film also stars Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Are you looking forward to the third installment in the Iron Man series?
