First Clip Of Ben Kingsley In Marvel's All Hail The King
A few shots from the new One-Shot. Trevor!

Remember the honking great SPOILER ALERT we offered before we talked about the first look at Marvel’s new One-Short short, All Hail The King? The one that those who have yet to see Iron Man 3 should take to heart, given that it continues one of the most controversial plot elements of modern Marvel cinematic history? We’ll repeat that SPOILER ALERT now, because the first clip from the One-Shott is now online.

 

For the rest of you, then, All Hail The King picks up the story of Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley), the Man Who Was The Fake Mandarin, a drugs, booze and lady-addicted actor recruited by Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) to play the villain without really realising what he was getting into.

Post-reveal, he’s in prison and, like the old thespian he is, he’s enjoying his one big chance at fame (not counting his Lear, which, as we’re told in Iron Man 3, was the toast of Croydon). Journalist Jackson Norris (Monsters’ Scoot McNairy) interviews Trevor about his life now, and we get a glimpse of the rumpled one's prison existence.

Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce scripted this one and steps behind the camera for the short, which will be on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-Ray, due to arrive in stores on February 24 in the UK and February 25 in the US.
