Iron Man 3 villains revealed?
Spoilers ahoy as the villains for Iron Man 3 have potentially been revealed.
Appreciating that there appears to be a daily quota of Marvel movie news to fill, there's been little problem in doing so of late. And now that Iron Man 3 has started filming? It might be an idea to prepare yourself for a lot more.
Spoilers follow, then, as some major news about the film has surfaced.
The news comes courtesy of the fine folks at Latino Review, who have confirmed that Sir Ben Kingsley will indeed be playing The Mandarin in the film. However he won't be the main villain of Iron Man 3, it seems, and will act as more of a veiled threat, working in conjunction with Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian, the creator of the nanobot technology, Extremis. Killian ("I'll be back" - sorry, bad 80s Arnie movie joke) is building an army which will act as the main threat, and consist of Coldblood and Firepower, with signs pointing to James Badge Dale playing the former and Ashley Hamilton playing the latter.
The film will reportedly have more of a Bond feel than a traditional superhero movie, which could certainly be interesting. As exciting as all of these announcements are, the main draw is still the reunion of Robert Downey Jr. and Shane Black. We love Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
