Poster for Marvel's One Shot ALL HAIL THE KING


Marvel released a poster for their new One Shot called "All Hail the King," which features Ben Kingsley reprising his role as the Mandarin. The short film will be included with the Blu-ray for Thor: The Dark World, which is set to be released on February 25th, and here's the description:

A documentarian played by Scoot McNairy (best known for Argo and In Search of a Midnight Kiss) narrates his quest to understand the history of the man who, in Iron Man 3, captivated the world’s attention as a fearsome terrorist, who amalgamated the forms of various menacing figures from history.

The fact that this man turned out to be (SPOILER ALERT) kind of a huge fraud is just another fascinating wrinkle in The Mandarin’s storied past.

Those who’ve already seen Iron Man 3 know that this terrifying figure was actually a clueless British actor who was simply desperate for work — and too dim to realize what he was getting into.

Spared an agonizing (albeit hilarious) demise in the feature film, Kingsley’s brain-addled Trevor Slattery survives to unleash more chaos in this short film.

Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce wrote and directed the short. The studio will be handing out the poster at a special screening of the short taking place at Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood, CA tonight. For more information on that, click here
