There has been a bunch of unconfirmed rumors surrounding the sequels to two of the biggest Marvel films. Here's the rundown:Ben Kingsley Will Play Mandarin In Iron Man 3
Ever since Iron Man there have been hints that the Mandarin was going to be Tony Stark's villain. Rumors are swirling that the Chinese villain known as "The Mandarin" will be played by Ben Kingsley in the next sequel. He's already been cast as the villain according to /Film, but we don't know for sure which one. A recent casting call on CBM asks for Asian extras which sounds suspiciously like the Mandarin. He's the most well-known of the Marvel's Asian villains
ALL TYPES, ALL AGES & ALL ETHNIC DESCENTS ARE NEEDED.He's probably not going to be exactly like the comics, but a modernization. Since Kingsley is known for playing other races effectively, he would be a good fit.
In addition there is a special need for those of Chinese as well as Middle Eastern descents.
Of course, another possibility is that it has something to do with the recent news that China is co-producing the next film.
Iron Man 3 hits theaters May 3, 2013, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and Ben Kingsley. The story will be loosely based on the Warren Ellis' "Extremis" comic storyline, involving the spread of a virus through nanobots.
Thor 2 Will Question His Romantic Relationship
Chris Hemsworth has read the script for Thor 2 and had some interesting things to say about it to Collider.
Really they were only together for three days, and do they love each other? Do they like each other? Do they know each other? We’re acknowledging that that love story in the first movie was sort of a quick crush, essentially, over the course of three quick days in the middle of the desertI thought the same thing about their relationship. The chemistry wasn't very strong between them in the film. So, it should be interesting to see them explore that.
