Video definitely NSFW.
I'm all for it, if what Variety is reporting today is true - Ben Kingsley is officially in talks to play IRON MAN 3's villain, and will go head to head with Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark. Will he play Mandarin? Insiders say no. That's too bad - I could see him being a spectacular Mandarin, but considering the source of Mandarin's power it might not make sense in the film universe that Marvel has set up. Whatever Shane Black comes up with, it'll be worthwhile to see Kingsley play it.
I'm glad to see Ben Kingsley taking a role like this - I thought he was amazing in HUGO - and if he brings a quarter of the evil and intensity that he did in SEXY BEAST, Stark has a formidable foe on his hands. I hope this happens.
