Ben Kingsley As The Mandarin In IRON MAN 3!

By AMC October 22, 2012

It is officially "Iron Man 3" day!

In addition to the release of the film's poster and the preview of the upcoming teaser trailer, EW has premiered the first image of Ben Kingsley as the villain, The Mandarin.

In a previous interview with USA Today, Marvel President of Production Kevin Feige said that in the film The Mandarin attacks in the months that follow the events of "The Avengers".

“He basically loses all of his toys and is forced to just use his mind to rebuild and to face his biggest enemy…"Feige said of Tony Stark's confrontation with the antagonist. "He’s ultimately the engineering superhero. He’s so charming and so flamboyant that sometimes you forget that’s what he is: ‘Hey, kids, learn this stuff and you can maybe build an Iron Man suit.’ ”

“The goal with Iron Man 3 is to again prove that all of our single heroes are as interesting alone as they are when they’re all together in an Avengers movie.”

“In this movie, we are again going to see him stripped down more than we’ve ever seen him since he was in that cave, again with his back against the wall and with nothing but his wits to help him survive.”

Take a look at the man who will bring Iron Man to heel below.

In addition to the still of The Mandarin, USA Today and the film's official Australia/New Zealand Facebook page have unveiled several additional images including one of War Machine’s new Iron Patriot-themed suit.

Take a look below!

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.
