With the Mandarin, yes, bait and switch is exactly what he was. And if that was the approach they wanted to take, I just wish they hadn't used Sir Ben Kingsley to do it. Actors don't come any bigger or classier. I think he was wasted in "Iron Man 3." By the way, I think there were some comments about how he didn't have rings? He did- there was a quick view of them both in the trailers and in the film, but they were just bling.
