That was quick. Just a week after the Marvel One-Shot titled ALL HAIL THE KING was outed on the special features of the Thor: The Dark World blu-ray release, we have confirmation that the short film will star Ben Kingsley as Trevor Slattery again. From the images provided by Entertainment Weekly, we can surmise he has been incarcerated and will have to deal with prison life as a false terrorist, an actor among murderers.
Iron Man 3 screen writer Drew Pearce elaborated on his situation with Entertainment, “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,” he says. “I think they would be right to be quite angry.” You can read more of his interview at Entertainment.
Take a look at the images below to see what the film will look like and let us know if you think the REAL Mandarin will make an appearance. All Hail The King is expected to release with the Thor: The Dark World blu-ray on February 25.
