Robert Downey Jr. Thinks Ben Kingsley May Steal 'Iron Man 3'

Geoff Boucher: ''Ask a young moviegoer to name a larger-than-life genius played by Robert Downey Jr. and they’ll probably name Tony Stark or Sherlock Holmes. The actor himself, however, might cite Charlie Chaplin. Downey earned his first Oscar nomination for channeling the Litttle Tramp in Chaplin (1992), which was produced and directed by Richard Attenborough, the esteemed British actor and filmmaker who today, at age 89, still presides over the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

The actor’s affection for Attenborough as a mentor gives him common ground with Ben Kingsley, who portrays the nefarious terrorist the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 (opening May 3). Kingsley, you’ll recall, won an Oscar for the title role in Attenborugh’s most celebrated film, Gandhi, in 1982. Here, Downey talks about that bond in the third installment of our five-part interview with the brightest silver screen star in the Marvel Universe.'' (Cinema, Iron Man 3, Robert Downey Jr.)

I love Iron Man so I doubt that the villian will steel the movie. He may make a big impact but my eyes will still be on Iron Man to save the day.

With Kingsley you can never know really. I mean he is capable of doing incredible work and then has also done some terrible work. But Robert Downey Jr. is just so good as Tony Stark I don't see anyone stealing the spotlight off of him. More so when Stark is gonna have 10x more screen time then Mandarin.

good news, iron man 3 can be huge, with robert and kingsley it can't go wrong

I can imagine he might. I mean we haven't seen enough of him to know what he's like but Kingsley is unarguably an incredible actor, he has the ability to steal it but I mean RDJ IS Stark, if you read the comics it makes Downey Jr. look even better but yeah we will see who this film belongs to, I kind of hope Kingsley will actually.

Great actor but I still would have preferred an actor of the same ethnicity as the character they're playing. Just a pet peeve of mine.

its all just publicity, RDJ just made that statement to keep audience all hyped up and expect a dark knight rises villain similarity but i dont think ben kingsley can steal the show, he might be just like mickey rourke in iron man 2, good acting but not enough to steal the show. i just hope iron man 3 will rebound from iron man 2.
