mandarinBen Kingsley, who famously played The Mandarin (if that’s what you want to call it) in “Iron Man 3,” has revealed he’s working on a top secret Marvel project. According to the Belfast Telegraph, Kingsley had this to say:

“It’s a secret Marvel project. I’m not allowed to say any more, you’re going to have to wait and see.”

And when pressed further, he added:

“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.”

On Marvel, he also said:

“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.”

He couldn’t delve any further because of the secretive nature of the project. But this all begs the question: Is there more in store for his IM3 character? Is he perhaps returning as only a voice? Would Marvel actually cast him in another live action role, set within the same cinematic universe as its other films?

We’ll have to keep an eye on this.

Kingsley will next be seen in “Ender’s Game,” in theaters November 1.
