    I always thought or wanted to see Ben Kingsley as the Vulture in a Sam Raimi Spider-Man movie. From what I've always or often heard, he was in talks to play the Vulture in Spider-Man 3 (he would've broken out of prison w/ Sandman) before Avi Arad and company over at Sony forced Raimi to instead, shoehorn Venom.

    Gronk? Wasn't Extremis the one centered on a nanotech version of the Super Solider Formula? If so, that doesn't really jive with what Shane Black said about grounding IM back in realism...it'd be disappointing if they suddenly drop the Ten Rings angle from the two IM movies since it was sorta leading us a revamped version of the Mandarin - maybe even dropping the name for one of his know aliases in the comics.

    I was kinda hoping they would introduce Madame Masque who I remember from the comics being connected to a whole host of villains including A.I.M., Hydra, Kingpin, and Red Skull. Wouldve been interesting since she was aalso a love interest of Stark. Though might be weird since Stark is known as Iron Man in the MCU.

    Report - Iron Man 3 to film in and be co-produced by China:

    That would be great if they set-up Mandarin with another Ten Rings appearance. It would make me happy at least.

    According to Variety, "Guy Pearce is in final talks to join Marvel Studios and Disney's "Iron Man 3" as the geneticist Aldrich Killian." Not a bad choice for the cast.

    Why such a big name for a minor role? I admit, I have not read the Extremis books, but just seems strange.

    Fiege talked about 'putting Tony back in the cave' so I'm guessing Killian's role will be similar to that of Yinsen in the first movie.

    Like the link said, could just be Dr. Maya Hansen or some 'fake casting byline' to throw off fans that gets changed later. I've thought Drew was more a fighter than a thinker. Jennifer Walters sprang to mind because she had the same public persona and super smart as Tony but she's a lawyer not a scientist. Could be an opp to debut Janet Van Dyne.

    I thought about Janet, but the Ant Man film is too far away. I wish Marvel wouldn't blow all their money on high paid/ profile actors unless they were in pivotal roles. Why not get a little known actor in these roles?

    Edit: okay this is exciting because I'm a fan of chinese cinema, and I'm not gonna get into the obvious rumor, but Andy Lay is in talks to star in IM3!

    Don't bet on seeing all these guest stars. It's already been said Iron Man 3 will be self contained. Besides, Shane Black has said before he does not like the Mandarin.

    I do agree, but I do know that in the long run, directors don't have the last say. Just look at Spider-Man 3 and Iron Man 2.

    Okay, aside from Dr. Henson, who else in Iron Man's supporting cast is his intellectual equal? I tried to think of some but they were all from the X-Men corner of Marvel.

    None really. There're characters who can give Stark a run for his money like Bethany Cabe, but not in a really intellectual capacity.

    Personally, I think it's kinda too early for an Extremis adaption at this point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I'd much rather actually see the Mandarin, considering he's reemerging in the comics and that, well, he's Iron Man's arch-nemesis! We've had Loki, Red Skull, and the Abomination plus technically the Leader. I think we're kinda due an appearance by him.

    Mallen probably won't be exactly like he was in Extremis, and I can imagine some elements from other Iron Man villains will be added to him. Probably as a side effect of his dosage of Extremis.

    I heard Hong Kong actor Andy Lau is now in negotiations to be featured in Iron Man 3. What's up with that? And considering China's now involved, I wouldn't be surprised if they did get Andy Lau. Just hope he'd turned his usual strut down a notch. Though I have noticed he's toned it in recent years.

    (by the way, huge supporter of Andy Lau. Loved him in the Infernal Affairs trilogy and the more recent "A Simple Life")

    Taking it with a grain of salt but after starting off on the wrong foot, it's being reported

    • Andy Lau has not signed on yet. Final negotiations are under way.
    • Andy Lau’s character will NOT be The Mandarin
    • Andy Lau’s character will be an old friend of Tony Stark's that represents China’s technology sector – and will use China’s armored heroes to help Iron Man defeat “The Mandarin” who is seen as a terrorist against both the US and China.
    It does sound too good to be true but returning back to the Ten Rings sounds exciting.

    Also Shane Black said this at CinemaCon 2012
    ...the film would be a "technological thriller," "a crisis movie" set in the world of "international war, arms and terror" and the sequel will "put Tony Stark through the wringer." Further, the director teased the villain will "frighten in today's world."

    lol, same time. a tech thriller sounds fun but with all the casting, maybe a Killian works for the Ten Rings?
