asked that director Jon Favreau, what his thoughts on the franchise's future and Iron Man's arch-enemy, The Mandarin, into the picture for the third installment.
"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.'"
As for Iron Man's ten-ringed nemesis The Mandarin?
"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."
