Update: Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce addressed the rumor, saying: “One thing I know for sure: nobody’s going to be apologizing for the Mandarin twist any time soon.” The report remains unconfirmed, but now seems to be edging on “unlikely.” The original story follows:
Last week came the reveal that Sir Ben Kingsley has recently shot a “secret project” for Marvel. The actor wouldn’t reveal any further details, simply saying “You’re going to have to wait and see.” Now it seems potential details on the matter may have surfaced.
According to Latino Review, the secret project Kingsley is teasing is the next “Marvel One-Shot” short film. Remember that spoiler warning? Here’s where that comes in. LR is reporting that the new One-Shot will have the “real Mandarin” confronting Kingsley’s Trevor Slattery over the “mockery” that he and Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) turned his legacy into in the events of the third Iron Man film. This remains unconfirmed, but check back for more details on the “secret project” as we learn them.
