Only ppl expecting racist caricature Mandarin are big Iron Man comic book fans cared and wanted the whole ten rings thing.
Wanting an Asian to play an Asian character is people expecting a racist caricature now? They could have have had the same character, without the stupid twist, but played by an asian and it wouldve been much better.
Also people hated that twist even if they didnt know the Mandarin. I'm not a Mandarin or Iron Man comic fan so IDK how the character is supposed to be. It was still terrible.
I never said anything about ppl expecting an Asian to play an Asian character.
The Mandarin IS a racist caricature though. There's no denying that. Over time they've lessened that but his origins are clear. No surprise they went even further and changed his name in the Chinese version.
What you talking about doesn't seem to be what I'm talking about. I don't see how casting an Asian man instead of Sir Ben Kingsley would've made what they did with fake Mandarin in IM3 much better than what was done. In the movie they never even established that the Mandarin was Chinese, he was just a terrorist. So no matter if the guy was an albino black Russian it still would've been batter
Just cuz you hated the twist doesn't mean everybody did or that the majority did.

The internet would've blown up and it would've been the worst movie ever made.
You know what's funny about that? That's EXACTLY what Nolan did in TDKR. Bane is busting **** up for 3/4ths of the movie and even despite claiming shorty wasn't Talia when she was cast before the movie she shows up as Talia at the end claiming this was all her master plan to honor her father and Bane just becomes a little ***** easily defeated by Batman
Yall don't even see the irony in this argument.
Also your example to make a comparison to what IM3 did really isn't equal
Funny but c'mon.Edited by Master Zik - 1/10/14 at 4:05pm
