Oh look Sir Ben Kingsley confirmed our Marvel scoop from last week. That’s the second of our two scoops that got confirmed over the weekend while I was building a gaming PC. For the first one go HERE.
In an interview with Vanity Fair Ben Kingsley himself said:
“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.”
Now I know that screenwriter Drew Pearce tweeted:
“One thing I know for sure: nobody’s going to be apologizing for the Mandarin twist any time soon.”
Well guess what? A) Drew Pearce is NOT the screenwriter of the upcoming Marvel One Shot and B) that ain’t a denial either.
Anyway, for those of you who forgot, in the Marvel 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.
For my haters out there who don’t think the above is true: now that Ben Kingsley confirmed he is doing a Marvel One Shot do you really believe that the Mandarin IS NOT going to be the focus of the short? Come on man. What could the short possibly be about? Chime in below and keep it clean ya haters!
