Ben Kingsley Runs through His Accents in New Deleted Scene from IRON MAN 3

I have a tough time deciding which part of Ben Kingsley‘s Iron Man 3 performances I enjoy more: the Mandarin side or the Trevor side.  Earlier this week, we got a deleted scene featuring the former, and now we have one with the latter.  The scene shows the hapless Trevor going through a host of accents at Rhodey’s (Don Cheadle) request.  It’s pretty funny, but there’s a huge missed opportunity to have Trevor to do an Indian accent.

Hit the jump to check out the deleted scene.  Iron Man 3 will be release on DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray on September 24th.  Click here to pre-order the DVD or Blu-ray on Amazon

    Don Cheadle has to keep asking about accents ’cause even his American dialect sounds sketchy at the best of times.

    The twist itself might make the movie worse, but this was still one of the best scenes in the movie

    can you do a british?

    ……..but I am British

    Two things….
    1. This deleted scene just reminds me how brilliant the mandarin’s twist was and how Kingsley pulled off the comedic angle very well.
    2. Where do I get me some of those black and white checkered pajamas that Downey Jr. wears to represent his iron man armor?

      Eh. I understand why Shane Black made such a major change to the Mandarin, but from a purely dramatic standpoint, it stopped the movie in its tracks and left us with a villain who based all his villainy on a fairly minor slight.

      • Alexander Calvo

        If you think you that Killian’s motivation was in any way revenge against Stark you have very bad comprehension skills. Or you are just looking to hate.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Let’s put it another way. The slight is not the only motivator, but it is still major motivator for Killian, particularly because it comes from someone who he both respects and wants to be respected by. I was not necessarily implying revenge. Killian still wants Tony’s help in perfecting Extremis, after all.

    I would have liked this movie more if I had no clue who the Mandarin was beforehand. They made this for movie audiences not comic book fans and we have to accept that the casual movie goer is much more important to studios than the die hard comic book fan.

      Or the fact [Coming from an Iron man Comic fan] The Mandarin would have been silly on screen. That was why they changed it, Black didn’t like the character and thought the charracter would be too cheesey and over the top for film. I agree

        If black didn’t like the character, why did he put him there in first place? He could have chosen a different villain

        To be honest, IM’s rogue gallery isn’t the best. It’s his Avengers exploits which are more interesting imho.

        Just sticking to the Extremis storyline or developing the A.I.M (or even MODOK) storyline would be far better than mocking the Mandarin.

        Modok could have been cool or they could have modernised mandarin by showing him as an actual terrorist mastermind who’s ten rings could be used to trigger bombs and missiles.

        Well then they should have changed and modernized him. They could have made an excellent and intimidating villain out of him without making him into a joke. Look at what Chris Nolan did to Bane and the Joker and Ra’s al Ghul. Were they exactly like they were in the comics? No. But they were still amazing and people loved them as real world versions of comic villains.
