Iron Man Edit
The Mandarin is only mentioned in Iron Man (film) by the terrorist group,the Ten Rings.In the Novelization of the movie,Raza looks at a Ring and says "The Man who's ring I wear".When Obadaih Stane kills Raza,Stane takes the Ring for unknown reasons.The Mandarin may also be the leader of the Ten Rings.
Iron Man 3 Edit
Director Jon Favreau loved the idea of including The Mandarin in Iron Man 3.
- In Iron Man 2,Justin Hammer had a ring on which may be the Mandarin which could allude to Justin Hammer being in the movie as well.
