After his somewhat controversial turn in Iron Man 3, it seems Ben Kingsley hasn’t finished with the Marvel universe just yet.
Spoilers in this article for those who haven’t seen Iron Man 3 yet.
Iron Man 3 is the most successful film of 2013 to date, yet the film and the twist has divided many. Ben Kingsley was fantastic throughout the Marvel movie, especially as the Mandarin, but then we found out that the Mandarin was nothing but a decoy and a cockney (London) actor going by the name of Trevor Slattery.
Many comic book fans hated how a popular nemesis of Iron Man could be handled in such a way, but none could be disappointed in the Oscar winning Kingsley’s performance.
Ben Kingsley will next be seen in Ender’s Game alongside Harrison Ford and, while answering questions on the sci-fi flick, he also commented on another secret Marvel film that he will be performing in.
“It’s a secret Marvel project. I’m not allowed to say any more, you’re going to have to wait and see. I think they have enormous taste as creative artists. There’s nothing lazy or gratuitous about their work. They are at the top of their game, and they’re great company to keep.”
Will Trevor Slattery be returning again? Or will Kingsley be turning up as a completely different character?
