Perhaps the biggest (and most offensive to comic fans) twist in years was the reveal that after months of amazing marketing, an impressive buildup of hype for his performance, and Ben Kingsley killing it in the role... it was revealed that Kingsley was just an actor named Trevor Slattery hired to portray The Mandarin, a made up terrorist.

The Mandarin is one of Iron Man's oldest and most powerful adversaries, it would be like revealing The Green Goblin was a robot. Alas, it happened... and we were certainly surprised.
