Sir Ben Kingsley, the only actor who ever played both Gandhi and The Mandarin, is reportedly working with Marvel on a new project following his Iron Man 3 turn.

Will he be returning as The Mandarin? Maybe. Everybody's staying mum about the plans Marvel has for the revered actor.

Here's all Kingsley could say: "It's a secret Marvel project. I'm not allowed to say any more, you're going to have to wait and see." He did add one detail: he met with "many members of the crew that were involved in Iron Man 3."

Blu-ray special feature for an upcoming Marvel movie release? Bit part in Avengers: The Age of Ultron? There are several possibilities.

Kingsley's next role is in Ender's Game, which comes out this Friday.
