We don't know much yet about the story behind Ben Kingsley's Mandarin in Iron Man 3
. But based on the newly released poster for the film
-- featuring the Mandarin rocking shades indoors, army fatigue pants, and what I sincerely hope is a pair of Timberlands -- we know this much: if being a supervillain doesn't work out for him, he definitely has a promising future starring in Wu-Tang videos. I suggest Ghostface, just to keep the theme going.
I think it's a testament to his ability as an actor that Kingsley -- the man who once brilliantly portrayed Mohandas Gandhi -- can take a picture like this and not only manage to not look stupid, but genuinely look kind of cool. Also, I want that chair he's sitting on.
