If you exclude the end credits, it's not in the second film at all.
The man who gave Vanko his tickets to Monaco was an agent of 10 Rings.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

How many more films is RDJ contracted for? I'm wondering whether they'll recast or reboot after his time is up.

I think Iron Man 3 is his last one.

That said, if he's still having fun and thinks he can still handle the role, I think he'll continue for a couple more.

If they decide to re-cast, I'd be taking a serious look at Dominic Cooper. He did a wonderful job as Howard Stark in CA:TFA and I think he'd make a great Tony.

I think the rebooted Iron Man will have a younger Tony Stark and have more Howard Stark scenes.


The reboot would focus on recent Iron Man comics

-Extremis

-Ultimate Iron Man

Which, if you exclude the cast list in the credits, isn't explained in the film at all.

I doubt they'll do an Iron Man reboot any time soon. Not until they're done with the current MCU properties, at least.

When the agent hands Vanko the tickets a simple one sentence line such as "The 10 Rings is pleased to help you in this matter vs Tony Stark.", that would've been a golden easter egg and connection to first film established.

So does this make it more likely that The Mandarin will appear?

You beat me to it just slightly.

I think it highly indicates an appearance by the Mandarin.

I cannot imagine any major studio, especially Disney, releasing a movie in 2013 with a villain named "Mandarin." In any event, Shane Black is on the record as believing The Mandarin to be a racist caricature.

It will only be racist if that is how the writers decide to depict the character. The writers can modernize the character while keeping some elements like the rings and being a leader of a terrorist organization. They don't even need to call him Mandarin. Just call him Gene Khan. Problem solved. Vanko wasn't called Whiplash even once in the second movie.

I think it will be very disappointing if we never get the Robert Downey Jr version of Iron Man going up against his archenemy the Mandarin even once from the comics. IM3 is looking more like it is going to be RDJ's last IM movie.

I'm still annoyed we never got to see the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man go up against the Lizard which was being built up from the second movie. Instead we got that crappy Spider-Man 3.

According to this article, the man has a faint tattoo of the Ten Rings symbol on his neck. Unfortunately, I'm on my work computer, so while I can get the text of the article, I can't see any of the pics provided. Therefore, I can't confirm if they provide any photgraphic evidence. Someone else wanna check?

Neither of the first two movies actually gave their villains nicknames outright. Stane said that he and Tony were "iron mongers" in IM1, but neither Whiplash nor Crimson Dynamo (Vanko was an amalgamation of both characters) were even alluded to in IM2. If the villain in IM3 does turn out to be the Mandarin, I imagine they'll do the same thing with him.
