My fellow Americans … my soldiers will destroy your country.Disney and Marvel Studios have released another TV ad for the Shane Black-directed action adventure Iron Man 3. If you choose to watch the video, then you’re going to know what nationality The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) would be. Therefore, if you don’t want to know this spoiler, then stop reading now. It’s been long known that the Mandarin wouldn’t be Chinese and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has always described The Mandarin’s nationality as somewhat of a mystery. However, by addressing his ‘fellow Americans,’ at the beginning of the footage it sounds that The Mandarin is claiming to be a homegrown American terrorist! Hitting theaters in just a few short weeks on May 3rd, 2013, Iron Man 3 also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Wang Xueqi. Check out the 30-second spot below which also seems to reveal the Chinese actor Xueqi’s character Dr. Wu aka the Radioactive Man. Here’s the synopsis:
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
