Wonder Man: Ben Kingsley to Reprise MCU Role

Ben Kingsley to Reprise MCU Role in ‘Wonder Man’ at Disney+

The actor will once again play actor Trevor Slattery in the project.

Ben Kingsley, the Oscar winner (Gandhi) and multiple Oscar nominee, will reprise his role as actor Trevor Slattery in Marvel’s Wonder Man project at Disney+.

The potential series focuses on one of Marvel’s oldest characters, Simon Williams/Wonder Man. He was introduced in 1964 in Marvel Comics, initially as a villain, but was reconceived as a hero in the 1970s. Wonder Man was a founding member of the West Coast Avengers in the ’80s, while Williams had a day job as an actor and stuntman.

The latter’s director, Destin Daniel Cretton, is co-creator and exec-producer of Wonder Man, along with head writer Andrew Guest (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).

Kingsley’s Slattery is an actor hired to portray the villain The Mandarin in Iron Man 3. He then appeared in the 2014 Marvel short All Hail the King, where he was broken out of prison by member of the Ten Rings organization before turning up again in Shang-Chi.
