Iron Man 3: Mandarin Has A Captain America Tattoo!

Check out this little Easter Egg from the recent Iron Man 3 trailer.

It's Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin sporting a Captain America tattoo -- anarchy style!

Or is that "A" for the Avengers?!

And why is it so big and on the back of his neck?

I'm guessing either there is history between Captain America and the Mandarin, going back to WWII? Or the Mandarin hates everything that Captain America represents, so he tattoos himself to remember etc. etc.

Kinda wild.

Does that mean Chris Evans will appear in Iron Man 3? Or even that Ben Kingsley could make an appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

Things just got interesting.

Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.
