With the Avengers soon to assemble on the big screen for the first time, Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. Iron Man 3 is being prepped for release next year and rumour has it that Sir Ben Kingsley is lined up to be the villain.

Having stated that the movie will not pit Iron Man against his comic book archenemy The Mandarin as was set up in the previous two movies by director Jon Favreau, who has left the project, we're free to speculate who Kingsley's character might be. Mickey Rourke's Whiplash was a conflated character character, part Whiplash, part Crimson Dynamo, so it's possible the character may be another amalgam, making speculation even more difficult. With the knowledge that Iron Man 3 is likely inspired partially by the Warren Ellis penned Extremis storyline, in which Tony Stark becomes a little more superhuman, it's possible that Kingsley will be playing a version of the character Mallen from that book, a man with nanobots in his body that allow him to take on Iron Man without armor. Or he may be someone associated with him. Or none of the above.

The Oscar-winner has circled the super-villain The Vulture in the past, when Sam Raimi was planning to use that character in Spider-Man 3 instead of Venom. What do you think of the possibility of seeing Ben Kingsley face off against Iron Man?
