Ben Kingsley Talks More About Mandarin Short

Sir Ben Kingsley has spoken a bit more with Vanity Fair about the “secret project” he’s done for Marvel, seemingly confirming talk that it’s a “One-Shot” short film.


On the other hand, he would NOT confirm whether it would be about changing the twist of “Iron Man 3” as has been rumored:

“I think it may be seen as . . . sometimes [Marvel] tacks on a short film to one of their other releases, maybe on a DVD or something. 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.”
