Last week, while doing press for Ender’s Game in England, Ben Kingsley teased Marvel fans with the news that he had just finished work on a super secret Marvel project. Now rumors abound about the project details . . . *Insert Standard Spoiler Warning here.
Last week Kingsley said:
It’s a secret Marvel project. I’m not allowed to say any more, you’re going to have to wait and see.
That certainly captured the Internet’s interest and theories caught on like wildfire. The one thing all the theories agreed on was that Kingsley would reprise his role as Trevor, the body double and fake Mandarin.
Now Latino Review is saying that they’ve got the goods on the secret project from their un-named Marvel sources.
Apparently, Marvel knows deep down that what they did with the Mandarin character in Iron Man 3 was straight up BUMJUICE! The movie lost me at the reveal and I fell asleep shortly afterwards. According to sources, Marvel wants to make it up to fans so in the one shot, the REAL Mandarin is furious with Aldrich Killian and Ben Kingsley’s character Trevor Slattery for the mockery they made of the real Mandarin’s identity and legacy. The real Mandarin wants to set the record straight.
Now if that’s true, this would set up the Mandarin for a Phase III movie appearance. Where will we get to see this one shot short? The most likely answer is when Thor: The Dark World releases its Blu-ray disc set, but it could be an after movie credits scene. We’ll have to wait and see how it plays out.
What do you think, has Latino Review got it right or is this just a well thought out page click generator?
