Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
I don't think I'd commented on the 10 Rings/Mandarin thing yet, but I think there are two explanations, both of which have been mentioned by other posters. Either A) Killian was behind the group the whole time or B) he just stole the image and decided to use it for Mandarin.
Was there any actual connection to the Ten Rings from the first movie and the Mandarin now?
