No, not the superhero from The Simpsons, the villain from the Iron Man mythos! Previously we had heard that Chinese actor Andy Lau would portray Chen Lu, an ally of Tony Stark in Iron Man 3, and now it seems Wang Xuexi has bagged the role. In the comics Chen Lu was a scientist before becoming Radioactive Man, and an ally of The Mandarin who will be played by Ben Kingsley in the film.
The news comes from Mtime (via ComicBook.com), who snapped a photo of Xuexi out for dinner with the film’s producer. It was rumoured a while back that he would become Radioactive Man in the post-credits scene of Iron Man 3, setting him up as the villain for Ant-Man, so that rumour may actually be true. How do you think Radioactive Man will tie into the plot of Iron Man 3? Sound off below.
