Sir Ben Kingsley will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The IRON MAN 3 star told the Belfast Telegram that he’s back in the Marvel fold for a secret project.

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

It all sounds very much like Kingsley has reprised his role from the third IRON MAN film and already completed whatever work needed to be done. Most likely, this secret project is a Marvel One-Shot to be included with the home release of an upcoming Marvel Studios film. Perhaps this one-shot will be ready in time for the Blu-ray and digital download release of THOR: THE DARK WORLD in the first quarter of 2014.

In any event, it will be great and probably hilarious to see Kingsley back as the key component in one of the biggest twists in the history of the genre.
