Iron Man 3 Updates: Sir Ben Kingsley, who played in Iron Man 3, has been seen on the red carpet of Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings. The film is the second big-screen entry in phase 4 following the launch of Black Widow and has long been entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When the film kicks off next month, actor Sili Liu will play the lead role.
Ten rings have been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for longer than most of the members shown. The gang first appeared in 2008 on Iron Man as a terrorist organization responsible for the kidnapping of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), and then returned to Iron Man 3 under the leadership of Ben Kingsley “The Mandarin”.
However, Kingsley’s cast of Mandarin turned out to be a ploy by Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), with Kingsley playing the role of Trevor Slattery, a foolish theater.
Someone who is accustomed to arriving at the premiere of Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings tonight, just as Shang-Chi is expected to officially enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sir Ben Kingsley, in particular, has come to the red carpet, as taken by the official Shang-Chi Twitter account.
What Iron Man 3: Ben Kingsley Shared?
The fact that Ben Kingsley has personal contact with the Mandarin character makes his appearance on the red Shang-Chi carpet very impressive. Apart from the fact that his exposure of the gang in Iron Man 3 has already been a ploy, Kingsley will return later with a Marvel One-Shot called All Hail the King, which mocked the arrival of Mandarin himself.
Now, nearly a decade later, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings are considered to have threatened that purpose by bringing in real Mandarin viewers they have never seen.
As the MCU moves from the fake Mandarin to the real Mandarin, Sir Ben Kingsley’s presence at the Shang-Chi premiere with the Legend of the Ten Rings definitely raises doubts as to whether he is in the film.
However, these premieres often send invitations to a large number of Hollywood A-listers who are not in the starting film, so Kingsley can only be there to sponsor production. No matter what, the public will be able to watch Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings when it opens on September 3.
