Mark Strong's Matai Shang costume from John Carter on display...

Mark Strong seems to have made his career out of playing villains and questionable characters, from 'Lord Blackwood' in Sherlock Holmes to 'Frank D'Amico' in Kick-Ass and 'Sinestro' in Green Lantern. So it's no surprise that in Disney's 2012 adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs 'John Carter of Mars' he gets to play the titular hero's alien adversary.
