Ben Kingsley’s appearance in Iron Man 3 was always going to be a controversial one, given the direction in which Shane Black decided to take the character of the Mandarin.
Many fans were distressed by the big reveal about the true nature of Kingsley’s character, although we’d argue his subsequent performance is one of the highlights of the whole film.
For those who preferred the threatening, menacing Mandarin, there’s a new deleted scene of him in full “character”. And for those who preferred the chuckles, there’s a new gag reel to enjoy too…
Take a look, below:
“We always cover the ass”. Very droll Mr. Downey. Very droll indeed…
Both extras will be included in the DVD and Blu-ray releases, which are set to hit UK shelves on 9 September 2013.
