I almost feel like whenever we refer to Ben Kingsley as “The Mandarin”, quotes are now required to indicate the misleading name of the character. Some people will never forgive the movie for the bait-and-switch because they wanted to see the Mandarin from the comics, which they were probably never going to get in the movie Iron Man world Marvel had been established. There wasn’t going to be a guy with ten magic rings, and while I understand Iron Man 3 had a radical reinvention of the character for the screen, it was still highly entertaining. For those who can’t get enough of co-writer and director Shane Black‘s take on the character, a deleted scene from the upcoming Iron Man 3 Blu-ray has been released online, and it features Kingsley in his hammy Mandarin persona.
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. [Update: We’ve added a just-released gag reel that will also be on the Blu-ray.]
