Iron Man 3 has released a new poster featuring Sir Ben Kingsley.

The poster, revealed by Empire, depicts the actor's take on classic comic book villain the Mandarin.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige previously said that Kingsley's antagonist "blurs ethnicity", as the character is a mix of various warrior motifs from across the world.

"It's less about his specific ethnicity than the symbolism of various cultures and iconography that he perverts for his own end," he explained in a previous interview.

Mandarin is considered one of Tony Stark's greatest foes in the Marvel Comics Universe, but is yet to feature on-screen.

Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Wang Xueqi will also appear in the Shane Black-directed movie.

Iron Man 3 will arrive in UK cinemas on April 26, 2013, following in the Us on May 3. Watch a trailer for the »
