Maybe Ben Kingsley Really Is The Mandarin?! Teases Secret Marvel Project

Iron Man 3 saw Ben Kingsley as "The Mandarin" only to be later revealed as Trevor Slattery, the drunken British actor.

Last we saw of Trevor, he was being taken away in cuffs.

Now we learn we will see Trevor as well as Ben Kingsley again.

While promoting Ender's Game, Ben Kingsley offered the Belfast Telegraph the following:

"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.

Perhaps another twist is in the works as Ben Kingsley really is the Mandarin and his role in Iron Man 3 was a ruse? Or could it be that S.H.I.E.L.D. might require the services of an actor such as Trevor?

Of course, it could be for a different role and character all together, such as voice-over work.
