‘Iron Man 3’ Ben Kingsley to Reprise His Role in ‘Wonder Man’ Series
Ben Kingsley will return to reprise his role as Trevor Slattery, the actor who impersonated The Mandarin in Iron Man 3, for the upcoming Wonder Man show on Disney+.
Kingsley returning as Slattery lends credence to reports that the show is intended to be a Hollywood satire, as it has been established that Slattery is a failed actor and Wonder Man has been an actor and a stuntman in the comics.
Kingsley first portrayed Slattery in Iron Man 3, then in a short film titled, All Hail the King. Most recently, he appeared as Slattery in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The role reunites Kingsley with Destin Daniel Cretton, who directed and co-wrote Shang-Chi. Cretton will serve as an executive producer and co-creator on the Wonder Man series.
