Ben Kingsley, who played the role of Trevor Slattery aka the False Mandarin in Iron Man 3, will return to his controversial role in Marvel Studios’ latest film Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings!
Ben Kingsley first appeared in the MCU in the 2013 movie Iron Man 3. Kingsley played Mandarin, who later turned out to be a British actor named Trevor Slattery, who was really just playing a role. Many fans were not very positive about this plot twist. Now, however, when we finally get the real Mandarin (Tony Leung) in the Shang-Chi movie and the legend of the ten rings, I think fans will take a little softer look at the situation. Marvel Studios will not abandon Slattery, however, and we will have a chance to see his return on September 3! We found out all this thanks to Brandon Davis of ComicBook, who, like Kingsley, went to the premiere of the latest Marvel movie.
They just confirmed Ben Kingsley is part of the cast of #ShangChi

Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings will hit Polish cinemas at the beginning of September. As there are never too many posters, Marvel Studios has prepared another effective poster for the fans. On it, of course, the main star of the movie, Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, during a fight with the main antagonist of the production, Mandarin. It seems that this is only half of the work, so we will probably get the other half soon.
The production cast includes Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Michelle Yeoh, Wave Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng. Destin Daniel Cretton was the director, and the film was produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Charles Newirth. David Callaham, Destin Daniel Cretton, and Andrew Lanham wrote the script for the film.
