Coming from the extremely-reliable Latino Review, some new details regarding the villain of Iron Man III have surfaced, as filming began a week ago. They confirm that Ben Kingsley will be playing the Mandarin, but won’t be the primary antagonist; that’s Guy Pearce’s Aldrich Killian who created the Extremis drug and uses an “Extremis army” made up of many super-powered people. Reportedly, the film is a “huge tech-James-Bond-thriller” and actors playing secret service and military men were spotted on set.
Considering there was casting for two very minor Iron Man villains popping up last week (Coldblood and Firepower), it seems that they will make up part of this ‘Extremis army’ and their comic names will only be codenames given to them. In a nutshell, Iron Man III sounds pretty f*cking awesome. What do you think of this news? Sound off below.
