Andy Lau in negotiation for Iron Man 3

The veteran Chinese actor Andy Lau is in talks of being a cast in “Iron Man 3.”

The sequel is said to be released next year, and filming will begin next month.

There have been rumours that Lau will be playing ‘The Mandarin,’ one of the major foes of Iron Man, who is an evil Chinese warlord with ten magical rings and powers of ancient Chinese magic.

But, there were reports that it would be unlikely for him to play the role. Simply because of the huge help offered by DMG Entertainment to Walt Disney Co. So, to make things more on the positive side, Lau might just be given the role of Tony Star’s Chinese scientist friend.

Besides, Lau is not the only actor rumoured for the villain’s role, Ben Kingsley is also being considered.
