Did LEGO just spoil a surprise Iron Man 3 villain?

An Iron Man toy just whispered a secret in our ear. Wanna hear it?

It looks like LEGO may have accidentally revealed a villain for Iron Man 3 whose identity was being kept on the down low. LEGO fansite Brick Fanatic reported on the new set of LEGO coming out for the film which is set to include:

Tony Stark, Iron Man mk42, Pepper Potts, Mandarin and a pale green bad guy we were not allowed to know the name of.

A pale, green guy who is a villain, eh? Sounds like it could be Radioactive Man, especially considering rumors that actor, Xueqi Wang, was originally rumored to play Chen Lu, Radioactive Man’s alias. As of Now Wang is listed as playing Dr. Wu, but that could easily be meant to throw us off the scent.

This rumor makes sense for a few reasons. For one, Mandarin isn’t really a person Tony Stark physically fights so there’s a need for a more physical villain. Also, it’s possible that Dr. Wu could be coerced or conflicted in some way when battling Iron Man as Radioactive Man, which would go along nicely with the existing Man vs. Self narrative the film already seems to have.

What do you think?
