With the release of Iron Man 3 drawing nearer, Marvel is giving us more material to build up hype. In the latest piece, Marvel has released a new poster showing the Iron Man 3 villain Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. And I have to say, he’s looking rather, well….bizarre. But I’ll let you be the judge and check it out for yourself below.
Frankly, I’m kind of put off by this poster. While I’m sure the character is going to be awesome in Iron Man 3 (and Kingsley will do amazingly with the role), this poster almost makes the character look like a joke. He looks like some cross between a militant and terrorist, with a little bit of gypsy mixed in and an extra dose of thug rapper. Seriously, this looks like it should be the cover art for a Snoop Dogg album or something. Kinda makes me wanna throw up in my mouth a little bit. But again, I’m sure it will be pulled off better in the movie, and Kingsley will do wonders with the role.
Iron Man 3 will be releasing in theaters on May 3rd.
What do you think? Like the poster and think he looks badass? Or are you trying to suppress a bit of vomit as well? Let us know in the comments below.
