Ben Kingsley (Sir Ben Kingsley if you’re nasty) is thisclose to signing on to antagonize Tony Stark in Iron Man 3.
No details are available on just which baddie Kingsley would play yet, but word on the Hollywood street is it will not be Stark’s alpha nemesis the Mandarin.
The threequel is set to start shooting next month for a May 2013 release, btw, so a decision is imminent.
Btw, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and Scarlett Johansson are already on board for more.
So I guess that means Johansson’s Black Widow does survive the final battle in the upcoming Avengers movie?
