*** Spoilers for IRON MAN 3 ahead! ***
Since Sir Ben Kingsley first teased his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe while promoting the cosmic clunker that was ENDER’S GAME, we all figured out straight away that it would take the form of a Marvel One Shot. It was either that or an appearance on AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. In hindsight it’s a shame it wasn’t the latter, as that show could use all the help it can get. Anyhoo, the first official details of ALL HAIL THE KING have been released via Entertainment Weekly, and it seems that the rumours of some form of retaliation from the “real” Mandarin were indeed true. Now in Seagate Prison, Trevor Slattery is visited by a documentarian (Scoot McNairy, ARGO) who’s after the inside scoop on the terrorist ruse that played out in IRON MAN 3. It transpires that the order of The Ten Rings are in fact a real terrorist organisation, and from that we can surmise, it’s highly likely its leader, The Mandarin, is too. Wonder what they'll make of Aldrich Killian & Slattery's actions? We'll have to wait and see.
Check out the first look images below, and then head over to EW.com to read an extensive interview on the short with writer Drew Pearce.
ALL HAIL THE KING will be available exclusively on the THOR: THE DARK WORLD Blu-ray, in stores late Feb (pre-order by clicking here).
