Ben Kingsley Says His Secret Marvel Project May Be a "One-Shot" Short Film

Posted: November 3rd, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ben Kingsley Says His Secret Marvel Project May Be a "One-Shot" Short FilmSubmit Comment
Last week, Ben Kingsley revealed that he's working with Marvel on a new "secret project." Many immediately jumped to the conclusion that his "Iron Man 3" character will be further explored and may even be used to undo the twist from the movie.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

In "Iron Man 3," it was revealed that The Mandarin is actually Trevor Slattery (Kingsley), a pathetic actor being used to give a face to the terrorist acts being committed.

A rumor appeared online that Marvel would introduce the real Mandarin who would confront Slattery. That was quickly denied by "Iron Man 3" writer Drew Pearce, who said: "One thing I know for sure: nobody's going to be apologizing for the Mandarin twist any time soon."

Now that Kingsley is promoting "Ender's Game," he spoke about the secret Marvel project, but refused to confirm or deny the Mandarin rumor.

"Sometimes [Marvel] tacks on a short film to one of their other releases, maybe on a DVD or something," he explained. "I haven't heard anything at all about this. So it's in progress. It will have to remain under wraps. Marvel was so brilliant in the way they kept the transition from the Mandarin to Trevor Slattery in 'Iron Man 3.' They were absolutely brilliant at it. I so respect the way they dearly want to surprise their audiences. But we will just have to leave it in the realm of rumor."

It sounds like Kingsley will appear in a new "One-Shot" short film, like "Item 47" and "Agent Carter." It's still not clear when his short film will be released.

Kingsley is an exceptional actor, but his role in Iron Man 3 was both a waste and, in some ways, an insult to the work he's put forth throughout his long and storied career.

"...nobody's going to be apologizing for the Mandarin twist any time soon."
