Andy Lau Confirmed For 'IRON MAN 3'

CBM has picked up on a story from Hong Kong paper AppleDaily that confirms actor Andy Lau (Infernal Affairs) has landed a supporting role in Iron Man 3. It had been reported that Lau would play a scientist friend of Stark's, who ultimately helps him along with Chinese superheroes to battle a global threat. Fan Bingbing and Yang Mi have also joined the production which will shoot a bunch of footage on location in China sometime during the summer. Fan will play Lau's wife while Yang his secretary. It's expected that Lau's role will have more screentime than the two actresses, but nothing is for sure. AppleDaily also reports that Kingsley is playing the Mandarin and somewhat explains the change to the villain's background as not to offend Asian audiences. The rest of the cast includes Robert Downey Jr., James Badge Dale, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce.
