Have we all got past the Mandarin twist in Iron Man 3 yet? Good… let’s move on.
Sir Ben Kingsley, who played The Mandarin and Trevor Slattery in Iron Man 3, has been talking about the character of the Mandarin in the Marvel universe and if he’s a future threat in the movie: “Has the Mandarin invented Trevor, or has Trevor invented the Mandarin? Which is which? The Mandarin could be so supremely intelligent that he could have said, ‘You know what? I’ll invent this actor, and he will be my mask.’ You know, which is which? Who’s pulling the strings.
“Now, this is me just free-thinking here, but I would love to revisit that world. But Trev, bless him, may have made an indelible mark on that world. So everyone might say, ‘Is it Trev under there?’ So they’d have to approach it quite carefully, and so would I, but I would love to go back to that world, yeah.”
Will we see The Mandarin again? We can but hope… will he be played by by Kingsley again? Well, that would be wonderful, wouldn’t it?
