Iron Man Correction

Shaun Toub is Yin Sen not Mandarin

In an Iron Man set visit in the June issue of Empire we incorrectly identified actor Shaun Toub as playing the villain The Mandarin. He in fact plays Yin Sen, who, in the comic books, is Tony Stark's fellow prisoner of war in Vietnam (in the movie this is updated to the Gulf War). Full details of Yin Sen's part in the film and casting of Mandarin are yet to be announced by Paramount. All other elements of the story are correct and totally awesome.

Apologies to readers and Paramount for this error. The News Editor has been taken out the back for a vicious beating with Iron Man Issue #1 (reduction in value be damned!) and instructed to cut back on his daytime drinking.
