The interpreter of the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 returns in this super-film which develops the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Impossible to talk about Ben Kingsley and Marvel without spoiling part of the plot ofIron man 3, so attention, spoilers!
Kevin Feige hosted a press conference this week to introduce Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings to the press, and the producer was surrounded by Simu Liu, the interpreter of this new hero within the MCU, and Ben kingsley, who played the Mandarin in Shane Black’s 2013 film. Finally, the fake Mandarin: an actor actually called Trevor Slattery, hired by the film’s real villain, who was played by Guy Pearce to publicly oppose Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
Iron Man 3: Shane Black still takes on the Mandarin twist
In this film, which will be released in France on September 1, the real Mandarin will finally take action, in the guise of Tony Leung (In the Mood for Love) and as the title indicates, we will know more about the Ten Rings, finally barely mentioned 8 years ago. But that doesn’t mean that the character of Ben Kingsley will be completely erased from this mythology. While the Mandarin twist had gone badly with some fans at the time, the team atIron man 3 has always supported this idea, and the actor is obviously delighted to be back in the saga: “As you may have seen, I just thanked Kevin Feige, Robert Downey Jr., Drew Pearce and Shane Black, because I AM in this movie, I’m a member of the big Marvel family, and they got me so well received on Iron man 3, in a way so bluffing and generous, that I’m still at Marvel, I come back once again. And I’m delighted to be here! “
