What's a week without a Mandarin sighting? We're certainly hoping that a single one won't go by with at least the slightest hint at what to expect from the "Iron Man 3" villain, and today, just in the nick of time, comes a brand new look at the ring-clad bad guy.
Marvel.com posted an all-new image of Sir Ben Kingsley in full Mandarin regalia, staring off with idle interest and stroking his formidable facial hair with those ring-covered fingers of his. There are a few other interesting details to consider in the new Mandarin look, too.
Two big points to consider, as far as I can see. Up first: beneath all those heavy robes, looking past those ornate rings, we see that Mandarin is wearing... a frickin' T-shirt? It's one thing to see the traditionally mystical villain wielding a handgun. But what's with the T-shirt? What does it say? Is he repping some "Avengers" apparel to go with his "Avengers" tattoo? Someone with better eyes than mine, please give a closer look and reveal what you find in the comments below.
