Ben Kingsley Confirms His Secret Project Is a Marvel One-Shot

Ben Kinglsey teases more about his secret Marvel projectLast month, we reported that Ben Kingsley is lining up a secretive Marvel project which is rumored to focus on the real Mandarin squaring off with the actor's Trevor Slattery character from Iron Man 3. When asked about the Mandarin rumor, the actor would not confirm that potential story line.

"I can't confirm that. No, I can't."

He did essentially confirm that the project is a new Marvel One-Shot short film, but it isn't known when he actually may shoot the project.

"Not really. [Laughs.] 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."

It isn't known if Marvel plans on attaching the short film to the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray and DVD release sometime next year, or where it may debut.

      @therealGoku Because the Mandarin from the comics that Marvel has yet to be in a movie, was not in Iron Man 3 and they plan to have him be in a one shot short film for the Mandarin.

          My best guess is that maybe he is fighting the mandarin to take his place idk I hope they make him the right mandarin

            As long as they have Marvel version of the Mandarin from the comics in it, then i'll watch it when I buy the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray, or what ever future Marvel movie they include it with in the future.
