Fans in China now have one more reason to get excited for “Iron Man 3.” According to Deadline, Marvel Studios plans to release two different cuts of the anticipated sequel: a standard version and a special cut exclusive to China. The special cut of the film includes exclusive bonus footage prepared specifically for Chinese audiences, with a special appearance by popular Chinese actress Fan Bingbing. Bingbing was also recently announced as Blink in Fox’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
The studio teased a bit of what to expect in the special cut of the film in the “Iron Man 3” international trailer earlier this year, which featured snippets of both Fan Bingbing and Wang Xueqi.
Directed by Shane Black, “Iron Man 3” also stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. The film opens May 3.
