Jon Favreau wants The Mandarin to be in Iron Man 3

In an interview with MTV, Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau revealed that he wants The Mandarin in the third film, but he highlights how there could be some problems using the character:

“You have to do The Mandarin,” he said. “The problem with The Mandarin is, the way it’s depicted in the comic books, you don’t want to see that. He also has 10 magical rings, and it just doesn’t feel right for our thing, so it’s either tech-based or the rings are not really rings.”

Favreau also notes that nothing is set in stone until he sees what happens with all the other Marvel Entertainment films coming out before ‘IM3’:

“I would like ‘Iron Man 3’ to pay it off, but there’s so much I don’t understand yet about what the world is going to be like then,” said Favreau. “You’ve got ‘Thor,’ ‘Captain America,’ ‘Avengers’ all happening with different directors before ‘Iron Man 3’ — and that’s all going to affect ‘Iron Man 3.'”

“What’s going to have happened by then?” he asked. “With ‘Thor,’ you’re going to have all this supernatural stuff happening and magic and there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world. If it’s going to match the comic books, it’s going to be incredibly complex for film.”
