‘Iron Man 3’ inspired Ben Kingsley’s latest role as Salvador Dali

It would be no surprise if film studios took inspiration from the Marvel franchise when it came to their casting. And that seems to be the case as it was revealed that Ben Kingsley was selected for his role in Dalíland thanks to the MCU.

The film’s director, Mary Harron, and writer John Walsh told The Warp in an interview that it was thanks to Iron Man 3 that they were able to find their Salvador Dali. According to them, Kingsley’s performance as the puppet villain/actor is close to how they envisioned someone to play the well-known surrealist artist. They saw Kingsley as someone who can play both a strong and weak character and believed that he could pull off the role.
