May 11, 2010 - Iron Man 3 / The Mandarin will likely be in movie #3
Scooped on Tuesday, May 11, 2010
With Iron Man 2 now out in theaters, and the third movie not planned to come out until after The Avengers, Thor and Captain America movies are released, director Jon Favreau thinks that he'll need the break to figure out how to get the proper take on portraying Iron Man's nemesis in the third movie, especially tackling the aspect of how to properly depict the villain's technology in the tech world of Tony Stark.
"I would like Iron Man 3 to pay it off, but there's so much I don't understand yet about what the world is going to be like then," Favreau told MTV. "You've got Thor, Captain America, Avengers all happening with different directors before Iron Man 3 — and that's all going to affect Iron Man 3."
"What's going to have happened by then?" the director asked. "With Thor, you're going to have all this supernatural stuff happening and magic and there's a lot of stuff going on in the world. If it's going to match the comic books, it's going to be incredibly complex for film."
And as for who the bad guy will be in Iron Man 3, Favreau knows for certain. "You have to do The Mandarin," he said. "The problem with The Mandarin is, the way it's depicted in the comic books, you don't want to see that. He also has 10 magical rings, and it just doesn't feel right for our thing, so it's either tech-based or the rings are not really rings."
"But maybe with Thor and all those others you'll introduce magic to that world and it won't seem so out of place."
