Kingsley: Marvel Isn’t Finished With The Mandarin

Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin

“It’s a secret Marvel project. I’m not allowed to say any more. You’re going to have to wait and see.”

That’s Sir Ben Kingsley revealing to The Belfast Telegraph (via Comic Book Movie) that he’s partnering with Marvel once more. A return of The Mandarin seems most likely (considering continuity), but there are other speculative options on the table including voice over work in the animated Big Hero 6 or as CGI Alien Soldier #4 in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The greatest question (and greatest fear) is whether they’ll stack a twist on top of a twist following Kingsley’s fun as hell performance in Iron Man 3. At the pace they’re going, he might just get his own TV show. Which I’d watch. Especially if he were the only actor on it.

So, with this little tidbit, it’s instantly 2012 again. In other news, can you believe that Iron Man 3 came out this year? It was less than six months ago! Insanity. Feels like a 2011 release at the very latest.

A veteran of writing about movies for nearly a decade, Scott Beggs has been the Managing Editor of Film School Rejects since 2009. Despite speculation, he is not actually Walter Mathau's grandson. See? He can't even spell his name right.
