With writer-director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 now playing around the world and opening in America this weekend, I recently got to speak with the cast and filmmakers here in Los Angeles.  During my video interview with Sir Ben Kingsley, we talked about the way Kevin Feige told him about the role and the arc of his character, how it’s tough to talk about the film without giving away some of the twists and turns, the way he prepared for the role, whether he took home the rings, and more.  In addition, Kingsley talked about his work in director Gavin Hood‘s Ender’s Game.  Hit the jump to watch.

Sir Ben Kingsley:

  • Did he immediately say yes when he was offered the role.  Talks about how Kevin Feige told him about the role and the arc of the character
  • How it’s hard to talk about his role without giving away some of the twists and turns of the movie
  • Talks about the Mandarin and the way he prepared for the role
  • Did he take home the rings
  • Ender’s Game talk
