 Ben Kingsley in negotiations for Iron Man 3 villain
Oscar winning actor Ben Kingsley is reportedly in final talks to play a villain in forthcoming superhero movie Iron Man 3.

The Hugo star is in final negotiations to star in the Marvel Blockbuster as an enemy of Iron Man, which is played by Robert Downey Jr, Variety reported.

Though the exact details of the character are being kept under wraps, the villain is expected to be involved in spreading a virus through nanobots because the film is believed to be loosely based on the 2005 Extremis comicbook series.

Jon Favreau, who directed the first two films in the franchise, had previously expressed interest in exploring the character, but he has moved on from the series, with Shane Black at the helm of Iron Man 3.

Black is also co-writing the script with Drew Pearce.

Kingsley will next be seen in Paramount's The Dictator with Sacha Baron Cohen.
