[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2873:]]The nuclear physicist gone bad guy, Chen Lu, will apparently be taking on Tony Stark in Iron Man 3 — as the Radioactive Man!

A Chinese website is reporting that 66-year-old actor Wang Xueqi has nabbed the role of Chen Lu, the Radioactive Man, and has provided a pic of the actor talking with Iron Man 3 producer Dan Mintz.

The Radioactive Man was initially a foe of Thor, before going on to become a reoccurring Avengers villain, and an eventual Iron Man villain.

Most likely how the Radioactive Man will tie into Iron Man 3 is through the Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley, as in the comics Chen Lu was under the Mandarin's employment.

However, will the Radioactive Man be friend or foe?! At times, again in the comics, the Radioactive Man has sided with the heroes or attempted to reform.


Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.
