First look at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin – or Trevor Slattery in Marvel one-shot Hail To The King

January 9th, 2014 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for a while now the Thor: The Dark World would have a One-shot called Hail To The King’ attached to its home release, although we weren’t sure who it would feature – although we did know Ben Kingsley had filmed more scenes for an undisclosed Marvel project.

Well, now we can confirm, thanks to Entertainment Weekly,  that it does indeed feature Kinglsey’s Mandarin or Trevor slattery to be precise

According to the site, “The 14-minute short has been written and directed by Drew Pearce, who co-wrote Iron Man 3 with Shane Black, and is currently being tapped up to scribble sequels to some of cinemas biggest franchises (Mission: Impossible 5 being at the top of his list).

“All Hail The King picks up with ‘Trevor’ where he left off after being uncovered by Tony Stark, and finds him locked up in a maximum-security prison.”





Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
