Alt-Ending Shows Different Fate for Mandarin in ‘Iron Man 3′

Iron Man 3

Of course, films rarely go from script to screen with absolutely no changes to plot, or character, or dialogue, and Iron Man 3 is no exception. In advance of the DVD/Blu-ray release of the film, several alternative takes of the film’s grand finale at the docks have been posted online. The work by storyboard artist Federico D’Alessandro shows some subtle differences between what was planned and what the finished film turned out to be.

Amongst the changes, an all-new, all-different ending for The Mandarin played by Ben Kingsley. Now I know what Shane Black did with The Mandarin in the film was, uh, contentious to say the least. I was fine with it, but the “new ending” for The Mandarin seems kind of silly to me, which is maybe why it was cut. Anyway, there may be spoilers in the video clips below if you haven’t yet seen Iron Man 3, so you’ve been warned appropriately.

Here’s the alternative ending for The Mandarin:
