Last week we learned that Sir Ben Kingsley secretly shot a Marvel One Shot short film. Thanks to our friends at Latino Review, we now have some details on what we will see in the short. For those of you who didn't care for what Marvel did with the Mandarin in Iron Man 3, this might make you happy. The information does include spoilers, so if you don't want to know, don't read ahead.
This is what the site reports:
Apparently, Marvel knows deep down that what they did with the Mandarin character in Iron Man 3 was straight up BUMJUICE! The movie lost me at the reveal and I fell asleep shortly afterwards. According to sources, 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, the REAL Mandarin.
I personally didn't have a problem with what Marvel did with the Mandarin in Iron Man 3. It was a really fun surprise, and I just rolled with it and enjoyed it. But it is pretty freakin' cool that they will introduce the real Mandarin. Who knows if he will play a larger role in the Marvel films somewhere down the line, but it will be interesting to see what they did with this short. I wonder who they cast to play the Mandarin.
What do you think about Marvel's plan to actually give fans the Mandarin they wanted to see?
