Wang Xuequi Confirmed For Radioactive Man In IRON MAN 3? Fuelling Rumors Of Masters Of Evil In AVENGERS 2?

Deadline has word that the Chinese shoot of Iron Man 3 will commence soon. It's odd that they are still shooting with release only months away. I assume that it's pickup, establishing and exterior shots of country that are needed. Anyways, along with some standard overseas shooting they confirm that actor Wang Xuequi has been cast as Dr. Wu. Andy Lu (Infernal Affairs) had been originally wanted for the role but eventually walked and Wang was placed in the role. It's been mentioned that Wu will start off as a friend of Tony's but is really a villain in the waiting.

Wu is apparently a variation of the Marvel character Radioactive Man (Chen Lu). He is a conflicted member of both the Thunderbolts and Masters of Evil, playing both hero and villain. Rumors have begun that Avengers 2 more personal threat would be The Masters Evil originally founded by Captain America villain Baron Zemo.
