Iron Man 3: Mandarin Character Poster

One of the most exciting additions to the Iron Man franchise this summer is Oscar winner Ben Kingsley.

The actor is set to take on the role of Mandarin in Iron Man 3 as he teams up with Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce.

And we have the latest character poster for the film:

Mandarin is the sinister head of the terrorist organization known as The Ten Rings, from which all the acts of extreme terrorism plaguing the world appear to emanate.

Although he is reclusive, Mandarin wields great power and makes his presence known by striking fear in the government and the populace through his brazen plans of attack.

Directed by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 is set to be the biggest and best addition to the franchise as Tony Stark faces his toughest challenge yet.

Iron Man 3 is released 26th April.
