Ben Kingsley has signed on to play the main villain in Iron Man 3.

You may know Ben Kingsley from Gandhi, Schindler’s List, Sexy Beast, House of Sand and Fog and many many more.

That bad guy will be the Mandarin.

The Mandarin is a super genius, a skilled martial artist, a leader and most dangerous of all he has 10 magical rings on each finger.  Each ring grants a separate power.

Mandarin was teased in the first Iron Man movie when Tony Stark was held hostage by the Ten Rings.
