Is that Iron Man's mask under his foot in the uncropped version? Interesting.

Already my favorite villain of the marvel cinematic universe - the only one that could top him is Thanos

I have a really good feeling about this movie. Hope I'm not proven wrong. Either way, Sir Ben is sublime in everything, so that's one thing that's certain about the movie already.

Not mad about the sunglasses otherwise good. I hope Ben Kingsley brings his significantly talented acting chops to the role...

Lots of rings, a collection of men's necklaces, an environment full of "incense" and a man lounging back wearing a dressing gown. Looks like a blinged up dealer in his den. The sunglasses really, really don't help.

Pretty sure the combat helmet with holes in has an "N" on the side, so is probably meant to be a UN peacekeeper's blue helmet.

@ JS to many rings??? that's a key element of mandarin. There was some people who thought they would choice to leave them out. I'm gald they are making an appearance, to what extent the focus will be on his rings that is left to be seen

I know the rings are key, and I'm really glad that they're including them and not just lifting Mandarin's name but nothing more. However, ten rings was always going to look a little odd, and the other elements of the design just don't create an impression of "serious villain" to me. It's OK in the comics where the man in the robe wearing rings is meant to look like just another version of Fu Manchu. But they've tried to mix that with realism and I think the overall mix just doesn't work, at least as presented here.

I like it. Presumably the sunglasses are Tony's?
