    Ben Kingsley to Return to the MCU in Disney+’s ‘Wonder Man’ Series

    Published on

    The actor has starred previously in ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Shang-Chi’

    The MCU had officially introduced the multiverse last year, with characters from other universes and timelines making appearances. However, one role sneaks through all this, without needing a multiverse. That is Ben Kingsley, who plays Trevor Slattery, an actor/con-man who has appeared in Iron Man 3 and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The actor will be returning for the upcoming Disney+ series Wonder Man, as announced by Variety.

    Wonder Man was announced back in June this year, and will be helmed by Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton, who is also assigned as the director of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Cretton will be writing Wonder Man along with head writer Andrew Guest, and will also executive produce, with chances of directing a couple of episodes.

    Ben Kingsley made his debut in 2013’s Iron Man 3 as a failed actor posing as the villainous Mandarin. He later got to assist the real Mandarin’s son Shang-Chi in his own movie which came out in 2021. According to Joe Otterson from VarietyWonder Man is believed to be a satire of Hollywood, and this can be an appropriate time to bring back Slattery. Being a failed actor himself, he can play a pivotal, yet hilarious role in the series.
