IRON MAN 3

2013 is finally here, and with it brings new information on "Iron Man 3." MTV has posted its preview of the "Iron Man" sequel with remarks from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige -- including insight on Ben Kingsley's Mandarin.

"We felt there was leeway to explore the Mandarin in a way that hasn't been explored before," Feige told MTV. "We found we couldn't point to any sort of definitive Mandarin story in the comics -- but if you print this, I'm sure a million fans will point to a specific story -- so as we've done with many of the films, we did an amalgamation. The Mandarin is relentless: he's a non-stop threat, and you've seen that in the first teaser trailer when Tony Stark's house tumbles into the sea. He doesn't mess around, this guy."
