Avengers Assemble (or as it’s better known, The Avengers) is due to be released later this month, but the Marvel movie machine won’t be stopping with the release of their tentpole crossover; as the next Iron Man movie (the aptly titled Iron Man 3) is scheduled to begin filming next month, and may have just found its villain in Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island).

Kingsley recently entered talks to star as the villain in the Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) written/directed movie which will once again co-star Robert Downey Jr. as the titular hero Tony Stark, and Gwyneth Paltrow as his assistant/love interest Pepper Potts, should have its plot partially laid out in The Avengers, and is due to be released on May 3rd 2013 in both the US and UK.
