Ever since Marvel started their “One-Shots” the fun has been keeping these tiny little stories under wraps. Well we may have finally got the real deal on Marvel’s Top Secret Ben Kingsley project. As we all know Kingsley played the Mandarin in Iron Man 3. Wait... or did he?

We had reported a story in the Belfast Telegraph were Kingsley revealed that he had just shot something for Marvel: 

“It’s a secret Marvel project. I’m not allowed to say any more, you’re going to have to wait and see,” he said. I was with many members of the crew that were involved in Iron Man 3. It was lovely to see them again. It was great to be with this wonderful family,” he continued. I think they have enormous taste as creative artists. There’s nothing lazy or gratuitous about their work. They are at the top of their game, and they’re great company to keep.”

According to Latino Review “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”.

Yes, you read that right, the real Mandarin. What do you think this news Maniacs? Sound off below!

It would be hilarious to see the real Mandarin vaporize Trevor with his disintegration ring for making him look like a fool.

This would be awesome, and would ease some of the disdain I had for IM3.  So if they do this, would the Manderine be Ben Kingsley or would they get someone else to play the real Manderine.  I agree with you @spiderhero, the real Manderine should definately vaporize him!!

 And then should the real Mandarin vaporize the real Manderine, whoever the hell he is? Sorry...
I gotta call BS on this, sounds like there's a little retconning going on to me, sorta like Lucas in Episode II trying to make us believe he actually wanted us to hate Jar Jar all along.

 It woul be cool that Ben would have been the real Mandarin all this time and played out just to confuse Stark and that he was the one financing Killian on the Extremis end to get a powerfull weapon for his agenda. And make him a master strategist with no super powers just super cool weapons.

That sounds cool for Marvel fans who hated the twist but seems like a slap in the face to Shane Black.

If Marvel knew there would be fan hate, why did they let him go ahead with the twist?

Trevor Slattery is just a double!!!

BunyonSnipe 10/30/2013 10:59:59 AM

The REAL Mandarin is nowhere near the United States, but they use a series of doubles all over the world to make it look like he is EVERYWHERE...

Slattery is just one of those doubles and probably had surgery to look more like the real Mandarin...

The Mandarin starts assassinating the remaining decoys and Slattery is the last one still alive, but he is being protected by SHIELD.

Perhaps this could be the season finale for AoS...

Coulsen is taking Skye to a cell to meet someone and it's Ben Kingsley as Slattery sitting there, bald as normal, no wig, no beard and visbly terrified...

"He sent me this message..." he says... "He wants me dead!"

If it's true, then I hope that somehow Ben Kingsley is the Mandarin. He was hilarious as Trevor Slattery, but as Mandarin he was very compelling. Yeah, and I'd like to see the bald dude from part 1 return for continuity's sake.
