    And they're probably not keen to invoke any of that for a wider audience, hence getting Kingsley to play him.

    I would think the main reason that the studios go after the Big Names is to lend the productions some degree of cultural heft.

    Unfortunately, the "quest for heft" may be what keeps the studios from using perfectly talented Chinese actors for such a role.
    Dare you delve into... THE ARCHETYPAL ARCHIVE?

    Well, they did have Andy Lau attached at one point. So who knows? Although I'm not sure he's attached anymore.
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    It would be weird if they did the whole IM movie series with no on screen Mandarin. He's kinda' Tonys Luthor/Joker/Red Skull/Green Goblin/Moriarty/what-have-you.
