Marvel One-Shot ‘All Hail the King’ Reveals First Clip of The Mandarin’s Return
Just when you thought you’d seen the last of Ben Kingsley‘s Mandarin (or Trevor Slattery, rather), Marvel has pulled him back in for an all new One-Shot for their upcoming release of ‘Thor: The Dark World‘ on Blu-ray. In the new short film, Slattery sits down with an inquisitive reporter for his first interview since landing in prison, and we’ve got a sneak peek at Kingsley reprising his role in the first clip.
First debuted on EW, the clip features a reporter, played by rising star Scoot McNairy (‘Argo,’ ‘12 Years a Slave‘), as he expresses his struggle to interview Slattery, who posed as the Mandarin to obscure the actions of the real villain in ‘Iron Man 3.’ But the world is dying to know who Slattery really is — can this reporter find out why the celebrity-obsessed Brit agreed to pose as a terrorist in the first place?
As ‘Iron Man 3′ scribe Drew Pearce (who also wrote and directed ‘All Hail the King’) described, “Imagine a real terrorist organization whose beliefs were long held and religious for thousands of years, and imagine a drunk, British actor coming along and essentially telling the world that he’s the face of your organization. I think they would be right to be quite angry.”
