Sir Ben Kingsley set to reunite with Marvel on ‘secret project’

Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin

During his press run for Ender’s Game, Sir Ben Kingsley has revealed that he will reunite with the guys at Marvel for a secret project.

“It’s a secret Marvel project. I’m not allowed to say any more, you’re going to have to wait and see,” said Kingsley when asked about working with Marvel Studios again. “I was with many members of the crew that were involved in Iron Man 3. It was lovely to see them again. It was great to be with this wonderful family.”

One can only assume that Kingsley will be back as The Mandarin Trevor Slattery in the next Marvel: One Shot for the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray release, but there’s always the chance that there’s something else on tap for the venerable actor. Maybe the secret project he’s talking about is a cameo appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier or maybe even a role in Marvel’s upcoming animated film, Big Hero 6? Who knows but either way Kingsley is keen on working with the studio again. On speaking with Marvel as a whole, he has nothing but praise for the studio, saying “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.”

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what this secret project is, but my money is on a Marvel: One Shot.
