Ben Kinglsey Teases Working on Some Sort of Secret Marvel Project
Well, it's not as much of a secret when someone goes blabbing about it, but while speaking with The Belfast Telegraph (via ComingSoon), Sir Ben Kingsley revealed that he's still working with Marvel. Fans who saw Iron Man 3 know that his character didn't meet a grisly end like some other villains, but Kingsley's role in the film didn't exactly turn out as it was portrayed, or at least implied, in the trailers either. However, since his character was left alive what does that mean for the actor and the comic book movie studio? Kingsley says, "It's a secret Marvel project. I'm not allowed to say any more, you're going to have to wait and see."
We're betting that Kingsley is involved with one of Marvel's One-Shot films, and maybe this will fill in a gap as to how Kingsley was hired to become the Mandarin. Or perhaps there's some sort of funny short being put together following Kingsley's character as he is debriefed by S.H.I.E.L.D., because that would be pretty damn funny. Anyway, we wouldn't count on him coming back on the big screen for Marvel anytime soon, but it does sound like there are some big plans in the works. There are rumors swirling of a lead-up to the Infinity Gauntlet storyline in The Avengers 3, and that sounds pretty damn great to us.
