Marvel One-Shot ‘All Hail the King’ Clip: The Trevor Slattery Experience

Published 7 months ago by

[Warning: This article contains Iron Man 3 SPOILERS.]

-

You can definitely say this for Iron Man 3: it caused a stir. In a twist that still has comic book fans talking, the Mandarin turned out to be nothing more than a drug-addled, out-of-work actor in a cheap costume, who had no idea of the atrocities being carried out in his name. Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley) may not have helped to mastermind Aldrich Killian’s plan, but he certainly gets to reap the benefits in All Hail the King, a new Marvel One-Shot which finds him living a life of celebrity amongst the convicts of Seagate Prison.

Those who were outraged by the portrayal of the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 might find some resolution in All Hail the King. The short stars Scoot McNairy (Argo) as a documentary filmmaker conducting interviews with Trevor for a feature about the Extremis plot, who begins to suspect that The Ten Rings terrorist group is very real and is very angry at Slattery for carelessly co-opting their culture and history.

Marvel has debuted the first clip from All Hail the King, featuring a voiceover from McNairy’s character, Jackson Norris. Keep an eye out for a rather familiar-looking tattoo on the back of Trevor’s neck.

The events of Iron Man 3 might be in the past, but it could also contain teases for the future of the Marvel cinematic universe, or even for the upcoming Marvel TV shows on Netflix. Writer and director Drew Pearce has said that “by the end of the short, there are definitely a lot of exciting other places that are brought up in it that could then go in the Marvel universe,” and we speculated that Trevor Slattery could find himself in Seagate Prison at the same time as Luke Cage.

After almost a full year, All Hail the King will return to one of the most controversial plot twists in the Marvel movie franchise so far, but how exactly will Pearce handle the showdown between Trevor and The Ten Rings? Will a real version of the Mandarin show up? Which other previously established characters will make an appearance? We’ll have to wait until next month to find out.

All Hail the King will be available on the Blu-ray and DVD release of Thor: The Dark World, on February 25, 2014.

  1. Ben Kingsley is a great actor.

    ** Spoiler **

    It would be awesome if he turned into a real Mandarin by discovering the 10 Rings.

    (the spoiler tag was sarcasm)

    • YES!! I had the exact same thought! What an awesome conclusion to the twist if he becomes the Mandarin .. maybe by external influence / Body possession / Brain wash.. although in this case Mandarin then would be a puppet to a higher power .. but still … if they do this it would be legendary.

  2. I really want to see this now I hope it does a good job at doing what it wants and needs to do whatever that is

  3. Even marvels damn shorts are nothing but sitcom style crap.
    I may have hated man of steel but seeing marvel like this kinda makes me look forward to BVS.

    • I’ll happily agree to disagree with you on that. Marvel’s Agent Carter, especially, was fantastic, I thought.

    • lol that’s a good joke.

      • The real joke is how all these DC fanboys turned into die hard Mandarin fans after seeing IM3

        • ^Exactly.

        • Because people’s faith deserve to be rewarded. Sometimes, a highest grossing film isn’t good enough. You can either end as a classic, or live long enough to see it become a novelty.

        • Nah…the REAL joke was IM3 as a whole…and it was not a GOOD joke.

  4. The least of Iron Man 3′s problems were the fake Mandarin.

    • You’re right, its biggest problem was the dumb so-called die-hard fans who couldn’t stand the (much necessary in the case of the Mandarin) changes made. I wonder how they’re gonna react at grandpa Douglas playing Hank Pym…

      • Sadly, the majority of the (and certainly, the BIGGEST) problems of IM3 were wholly contained within and making up the meat of the movie itself. Fans and casual watchers simply had to put up with the crap that was produced.

        • Casual watchers enjoyed the movie. It received a great reception from the fans and critics alike.

          Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

          • + infinity

          • John…

            I don’t smoke. I enjoy watching movies without all the coughing, wheezing, and haziness. You, however feel free to continue watching IM3 through that choking fog of yours…logically, THAT is why you were able to enjoy that putrid excuse for camera usage.

            Enjoy…just don’t “smoke it if you’ve got it” near me or mine. ;)

            • You stated that fans and casual watchers had to put up with crap; I’m simply responding by saying they seemed to put up with it fine since the film was a critical, audience, and box office success.

              You should probably take up smoking because it will calm your nerves in responding to every Marvel-related comment on every thread.

              Oh, and I don’t smoke :)

            • Iron Man 3 was a success, both critically and financially. It was also a success with the audience. It was literally a better success in all 3 ways than was Man of Steel.

              Sorry buddy but you’re insecurity regarding the failures of DC and the successes of Marvel won’t do you any good. Better to just take up smoking and calm your fragile nerves.

              PS: I don’t smoke

              • MOS did great…hence the coming of the DCMU. I have no insecurities about MOS or IM3. I just feel a great sadness that IM3 did so well and impressed so many people, because it shows me the very real possibility (probability? Yes, I think so) of quality cinema’s decline. TV, while still possessing some truly amazing shows, is increasing its output of garbage painfully rapidly…and viewers are eating it up. IM3 hints at that same decline if its level of “quality” is allowed to become the norm. That saddens me.

                Seriously?! You thought I was stating you smoke? I hope you were simply trying to be funny…Sadly, your supporter Joe really DOES seem to think I didn’t know you were using an expression. HE is precisely the type of fan I’m talking about…Sigh.

            • @ Archaeon,

              John’s expression was not telling you to literally go smoke.

              Put it in your pipe and smoke it” is an expression.

              Why would you respond saying, “I don’t smoke.” Its as if you didn’t understand what an idiom expression is.

              And, while I do agree Man of Steel was a good movie, John is right. IM 3 was financially and critically more successful.

              Either way, in my eyes, I liked both movies equally. Both had flaws, both were good, and both were kind of let downs.

              • Joe…Read my response to John, above. I KNOW he was simply using a colloquialism. I had a particular point in my use of the reference to smoking, which I stated in the same response.

                As for IM3′s success: Yes, it was exceedingly successful…I never denied that. My point is just that it does not DESERVE that success.

                • Archaeon,

                  1. If you know it is just a figure of speech why respond with “I don’t smoke.” Responding to the statement the way you did truly made you look like you didn’t get it. That is all I was saying.

                  2. Above, you wrote about me, “…Joe really DOES seem to think I didn’t know you were using an expression. HE is precisely the type of fan I’m talking about…Sigh.”

                  I’m a little confused… First off, my original post to you was simply asking you why you responded the way you did. I didn’t attack your integrity as a fan or as a person. In fact I was very civil with my comment. You were not. Why are you so defensive as to attack my integrity?

                  Plus, what type of fan are you referring to? Nothing in the overall conversation above gave any indication as to the kind of fan I am. Please explain. I would love to hear this….

                  • Joe…

                    1. Again, I say I had a particular purpose in mind with the whole smoking RE-reference AND expressed that purpose in my response.

                    2. I was not attacking your integrity and apologize if it came across as such. What I WAS doing is indicating my concern that the Marvel movies potentially released in a future where IM3 is considered brilliant (thus, copied, whether in form and/or formula) will be setting up a poorer filmverse. Your literal (mis)understanding of my comment gave me an immediate referent for my fear that IM3 was being praised when (IMO) it does deserve it…in the slightest.

                    As for the comment below made by James about my expectations for the movie, my only expectations going in were that it would be better than IM2 and that it would continue the tradition of the lighter-fared Marvel movies (all of which, to that point, I had at least in SOME manner enjoyed…enough to keep going to see the next movie). It was NOT better than IM2, and its lightness, while present, combined with a pitiful attempt (IMO, again) at some depth.

                    I DID find RDJ’s performance to be excellent…the rest? NO.

                    THAT is all I was trying to convey…

            • Clearly more than just casual movie goer’s liked it, Didnt it make over a billion? Better yet, Do something useful and make a better movie?

        • See, I’ve been a huge Iron Man fan for at least 30 years but that didn’t prevent me from keeping a critical eye. I’ve always found the comic version of the Mandarin to be a bad cliché, so what they made of him in the movie was a great relief. Also, Ben freakin’ Kingsley, dammit! Sure, IM3 wasn’t perfect, but it still was miles ahead of IM2.

          • The comic version of the Mandarin WAS a bad cliche’, and Kingsley’s Mandarin WOULD have been pretty cool…IF he had been the Mandarin. He wasn’t. Even with that change, however, the movie, itself, STILL would have left A LOT to be desired. It just was NOT good.

            You see?

            • No I don’t. I don’t understand what your beef with IM3 is. It was a good, entertaining movie in my book. You’re talking to a guy whose favorite filmmakers are the likes of Kubrick, Lynch or Cronenberg, so I know what great cinema is. IM3 certainly doesn’t compare to this greatness but it’s not what is asked of it. Bottom line, it was a good action comic book movie, nothing more, noting less.

              • My beef is simply that after Phase 1, I expected the quality of the Phase 2 films to shoot through the roof…to OUTDO their predecessors. IMO, they did not. I found IM3 atrocious for many reasons (which I and others have already listed AND discussed on previous threads). “Thor:The Dark World” was somewhat better and was entertaining, at least. It, too, was not nearly as impressive as it could have (SHOULD have) been. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” looks like it might finally move Phase 2 to the next level, instead of merely treading water (Thor 2) or sinking (IM3). Here’s hoping…

                As for providing your film-watcher pedigree, join the club. THAT, in fact, is why I’m so surprised so many people found IM3 to be good. I was disappointed.

                If you liked it, that IS your right…as it is mine to DISlike it.

                • Thor TDW: better than Thor. IM3: not better than IM, I’ll grant you that, but again, better than IM2. And Cap TWS is shaping to be incomparably better than its much lame predecessor. So clearly, as of now, Phase II indeed seems to be outdoing Phase I and there’s a good chance that GotG and AoU will continue the trend.

                  I don’t recall reading your criticisms specifically but I have read many. The fact is, almost every single one of them is easily debunked. To paraphrase you, THAT, in fact, is why I’m so surprised so many people found IM3 to be bad. It seems to me that in order to enjoy this movie, one has to cast his fanboi goggles aside. “Kingsley’s Mandarin WOULD have been pretty cool…IF he had been the Mandarin.” Your words, comparing the movie to the comics without acknowledging they’re two separate entities. Personally, I don’t care if he’s the Mandarin, the janitor at Marvel Studios or your momma: Kingsley ROCKED, both pre- and post-twist, period.

                  Of course, you’re entitled to your right to dislike the movie but don’t expect me to seriously take it as anything more than frustrated fanboyism.

                  • …and by the same token as your last paragraph, I too now know not to take seriously YOUR views on this particular movie, at the very least, as you have (from my perspective) settled on a comfortable self-delusion to make yourself feel better about the way Phase 2 has been developing. IM3 was crap…Thor 2 was entertaining and better than the first in certain regards (and worse in others)…CA2 has a chance to get the current phase back on track and SEEMS poised to do so, based on what relatively little evidence we have. Here’s hoping, because if it is not a stunning film, I will consider Phase 2 a failure…no matter HOW much money it makes over all (since so many people try to use profit as a measure of quality…erroneously).

                    We shall see…

                    • To me it sounds like you had unrealistic expectations and hence your movie viewing experience was hampered. Personally I loved Iron Man 3, yes I walked into the theater expecting something as bad as Iron Man 2, but none the less I had a lot of fun.

                      Look you can’t look at Marvel as a giant franchise, there’s 4 (soon to be 6) individual stories that intertwine in the Avengers films. They all have different actors, different directors, and different story dynamics. Iron Man was one of the best superhero movies of all time, thinking that just because Iron Man 3 is in phase 2 it will be superior just holds no ground.

                      The story took Tony too a place where he was scared and vulnerable, as well as setting the character up for his place in Avengers 2. (The Ultron announcement shed a lot of light on why Tony spent so much time out of the armor). Man of Steel on the other hand was one of the most brilliant films to come out this year, but was put together horribly.

                      Imo if they cut the Krypton intro, then the story could have unfolded much more neatly. The audience would have been learning Clarks mystery as he did, the shock of Zod telling Clark he killed his father would have had much more resonance if we hadn’t seen it already, and I just feel like the less is more approach would have helped the planet’s strange culture feel a little more believable.

                    • Archaeon, I don’t give much credit to the box office, otherwise the likes of Bay and Schumacher would be downright geniuses. I’ve shed my last remnant of illusion a long time ago and I certainly don’t need to feel better about Phase II since it didn’t disappoint me so far (you, on the other hand, come across as satisfying your need for self-comforting by unduly bashing IM3 and to a lesser extent Phase II as a whole): I expected Thor 2 to be as cheesy as Thor 1 and it wasn’t, and I was hoping IM3 would right the wrongs of IM2 and it did. I agree with James, you seem to have had unrealistic expectations about what was nothing more than a fun actioner.

  5. the tattoo behind his neck. what is it?

    • Cap’s shield with an anarchy A.

    • It’s the Star Brand ;)

    • I <3 Mom

  6. Trevor is not the only one who’s oblivious.

  7. I never understood the outrage at the Mandarin twist. I thought it played well and was a highlight in the film. Personally, I thought the writing was bad, some of the performances were terrible and the ending fight scene was a mess. But, Ben Kingsley was classic.

    • Um… the Mandarin to Iron Man is the Joker to Batman. Thats why it was so stupid

      • I am a die hard Marvel fan but I must disagree with you. Mandarin to Iron Man does not carry the same weight as Joker to Batman. Yes, Mandarin is the arch-nemesis of Iron Man but, IMO, Mandarin isn’t as well known to the general public as Joker.

        To me, a better comparison to the Batman/Joker would be Green Goblin or Doc Ock to Spiderman / Dr. Doom to Fantastic Four / OR Magneto to X-Men.

        Just my opinion but I see Mandarin/Iron Man as similar to Sinestro/Green Lantern. Lantern and Iron Man have both been around for a long time in the comics but their arch-nemesis’s are lesser known to general public.

      • I am a huge Batman fan and I don’t buy the comparison. I read Iron Man from the late 70′s to the early 90′s and the Mandarin was not Iron Man’s “Joker” or even his arch-nemisis. The Mandarin was a great comic villain and I am not saying that the version in IM 3 was anything like the comics, it was obviously nothing like the comics. There are reasons why the filmmakers chose to do what they did, box office was a part of it and I understand the move.

        Also, as a Batman fan I have seen numerous versions of Batman on tv and in movies, same as the comics.

        Iron Man 3 was a mess, looked great, but it was a mess. But, the Mandarin twist was not what made it the terrible for me, opinions vary.

      • +1,000,000

        I agree with you Josh. I’m still SMDH that some folks still like that piece of crap of a film, but everyone has their opinion. The Mandarin SHOULD HAVE BEEN the Mandarin. Period! I have seen all of the MCU related films at least twice. Iron Man 3 I saw one time and one time was enough. Still SMDH on how Marvel executives allowed this twist to happen.

        • There are people who collected comics who are probably only vaguely aware of the Mandarin, so even if he is some type of arch-nemesis to Iron Man he does not hold the same weight overall as the Joker does to Batman. The other major factor in the change to the character might have a lot to do with Marvel and Disney wanting to be able to sell the movie to the Asian markets, and the Mandarin character created in the 60′s might be considered a bit racist by some.

      • Up until the movie were released Iron Man was a low B-List hero. Mandarin was a C-List villain at best. If you went up to a person on the streets and asked them “Who is the Joker” or “Who is Lex Luthor” or “Who is Doctor Doom?” you’ve got a much better shot at getting the right answer than “Who is the Mandarin”. I thought the twist was a classic piece of clever righting.

        The character was a bad Chinese stereotype created during a period of rampant anti-communist propaganda. Today the war on communism is over, but the war on terror is alive and well. To turn the Mandarin into a piece of Anti-Terror propaganda literally, was in all means, the most genuine adaptation they could have possibly done. I don’t think many people realized just how brilliant it was.

    • just watch iron man animated movie you will uderstand why

      • That is one take on Iron Man, not the only one allowed.

    • I agree – I loved the twist and if ‘not’ for Kingsley’s acting , could have been a mess – but instead it was brilliant & funny – and my fave scene in the movie. IM3 was good – but was messy by the end – with just too much going on.

  8. anyone else think that the camera focusing on the black arm holding the cross is marvel hinting at luke cage being in the movie ? i would think so given that it had no significance to the overall trailer (the others where holding paper etc to get signed, why was that one guy holding a cross?).

  9. well this looks terrible – another idea that has potential that will not deliver (see AoS or IM3 for other examples of this)

    anybody hoping for anything cool – like mention of the ten rings organisation or hints of a real mandarin or even a luke cage tease – wont be getting anything like that
    this wont be anything but ben kingsley just being funny as trevor – the crew behind this have only made this to say ‘look how funny this guy is – wasnt this genious’
    Trevor was the best thing about Iron Man 3 but this seems like it will be something that nobody was asking for

    stuff like this makes me glad i dont have a blu-ray player, as i know this one-shot wont be on the dvd

    I really hope Cap 2 is able to reinvigorate my enthusiasm for the MCU cos these days i’m running on empty – have been let down by Iron Man 3 and AoS, still havent seen Thor 2 (it just kind of passed me by), Cap 2 trailer look awesome (but then so did IM3), GotG has me curious rather than psyched atm

      So, did you watch it? Are you eating your own words right about now? Seems we got EVERYTHING you said we would NOT!

      • not eating as many of them as you seem to think

        maybe it wasnt terrible, but it sure wasnt to great either

        ok, so mandarin and ten rings got a mention, i was wrong there
        but so a real mandarin has been hinted at so when will we see him? Iron Man 4 i guess but when will that film come out, not until after avengers 3 and possibly avengers 4 too

        i stand by the rest of my words as they are still true,
        it was just kingsley indulging in more trevor which is a role he seems to be getting a kick out of, at he is still pulling it of as well as in the movie

  10. Well this looks awesome!- Another idea that has potential and will deliver…

    Anyone hoping for anything cool like the 10 Rings organization or Luke Cage will most likely be getting it through this One Shot. The crew behind this made this to carry on the story of Trevor and to also answer some of the questions about the “real” Mandarin or the Mandarin’s legacy.

    stuff like this makes me SAD i dont have a blu-ray player, as i know this one-shot WILL be on the dvd release of Thor: Dark World

    I really hope Cap 2 will continue to reinvigorate my enthusiasm for the MCU… – havent been let down by Iron Man 3 but a little bit by AoS, HAVE seen Thor 2 (it just kind of DIDN”T pass me by), Cap 2 trailer look awesome (but then so did IM3), GotG has me VERY curious AND rather psyched atm

    OH SNAP! DID I KINDA JUST “SHIA LABEOUF” MY RANT OFF OF A PREVIOUS RANTER????? HMMM….

    • nice ;)

    • Niceeeeeeeee

    • well played Joe – I stand ‘Lebeoufed’

      • Lol! Thought you would like it…

    • Lmao! Perfect!

    • @Joe:

      You forgot to end it with:

      Now I can retire from public life.

  11. Here’s “one-shot” for Marvel: put these features on regular DVDs as well as on Blu-Ray discs. Don’t penalize those of us who do not have a Blu-Ray player. We’re not all as rich as Tony Stark!

    • +1

    • it’s the Blu Pay disc that is over priced

      Blu Pay players sell for 40 bucks if not cheaper on sale….i just bought a PS3 new for 50 bucks and it connects to Netflix plus plays Blu Pay discs..

  12. When I first saw Kingsley’s character doing the British Accent, I thought it was a ploy to fool Stark into thinking he wasn’t really the Mandarin, and to take attention off himself so he could try to get away. Wouldn’t it be funny if that ended up being the case, and he really was the real Mandarin all along?

    I’m not sure if I’d prefer that or the “real” Mandarin finding out about Trevor and getting all mad and showing himself.

    • The only issue with that is if it was Mandarin being Trevor how do you account for the girls, beer cans, toilet, etc.

      I had thought of that also but the evidence from the movie points elsewhere.

      Would it be to much of a stretch to have him knocked on the head and assume The Mandarin persona? Probably.

      I think we have lost Sir Ben as The Mandarin… :(

      • Who says a villain can’t have a little fun and take over the world? It’s comments like that which have set back the rights of villains everywhere for countless years.

        I also believe we’ve seen the last of a Ben Kingsley Mandarin.

        • Hmm, yes perhaps it was just him kicking back and enjoying being a super villain, and saw it as a chance for the perfect cover story. Who knows? I guess we’ll find out.

      • Who says a villain can’t have a little fun and take over the world? It’s comments like that which have set back the rights of villains for countless years.

        I also believe we’ve seen the last of a Ben Kingsley Mandarin.

  13. After the Thor, and Avengers movie they could have easily used mandarin tech rings and a real Fin Fang Foom creature that comes from another realm.

  14. IM3 (imo) sucked because of the kiddy actor who Disney obviously had a part of. IM2 (imo) stunk because of the pointless need to kill Tony because of whiplash’s daddy-rage. Could have built that up a bit more…I like both, but IM1 is the best by far.

  15. $10 says he really is the real Mandarin and they’re still playing it as though he isn’t as a cover up to his true identity. “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” Marvel could be playing that quote to a tee…a la convincing everyone that the Mandarin was just some actor, when he really is the Mandarin, 10 rings and all, with a larger plot and scheme ahead. Classic smoke and mirrors move.

    • That really makes no sense. If he is the brains behind the organization then why even release his name at all? Just let the Extremis guy be the Extremis guy and just stay hidden.

      What do you buy yourself by only pretending to be the Mandarian, then letting everyone find out your a washed up actor who drinks and lusts after fame, the let yourself get locked up in prison still acting like your a ditzy blonde only to reveal yourself later as a Master Criminal?

      It certainly can’t be credibility….or fear….

      • I don’t know, but I’ve seen enough James Bond films to know that you always divulge to the protagonist your plans before ‘killing’ them. There could be more going on behind the scenes, that the entire ’10 Rings’ organization is working on, that their leader isn’t necessary to be around for. Opinions are like assholes, right? And I know mine may have a sour tinge to it, but it’s interesting to me, as I enjoyed the spin on the character as an actor playing a part, while simultaneously believing there is still a trick up their (the studios) sleeves concerning the character. I said in a different article, studios have a way of doing exactly what everyone least expects, or playing against what everyone expects, then only to have it turn out it is exactly as expected after playing their hand flawlessly and having everyone fooled with their bluff. And who’s to say he’s losing credibility by being locked up if he knows he could be sprung no problem, at any time?

          I am not sure if I would be all that scared of a terrorist who is characterized as a drunken, goofy, media seeking, womanizing goofball actor who is seeking quick “reality show” fame who got arrested by a playboy billionaire….I would probably rank him up there with the Kardashians and Lohan in terms of things to worry about. LOL.

          And I am not trying to shoot down your fun…just saying that its bad writing if that is what they are doing…a person in real life would not do that if they are trying to be taken seriously.

          *shrug*

  16. do you guys honestly think Marvel would get Ben Kingsley to show up for a joke role and a one shot?

    there is more than meets the eye, just like Thanos has been and will be teased in a few more movies

  17. Every time I hear the name Drew Pearce I cringe a little bit

    • I dream of the day when I am down to just a little cringing…..

  18. someone i know pointed out an interesting comparison between iron man 3 and another ‘great’ CBM – Spider-Man 3!

    What we were promised (marketing) – A dark examination of the title character at the hands of a classic vilian (mandarin – venom)

    What we got – nothing of the sort just corny humour and a classic villian ruined unceremoniously

    other similarities
    - a scene that was just the hero dancing around (spidermans emo thing – Stark trying on the mark 42 for the first time)
    - hero saves falling people mid way through movie (air force one crew – gwen stacy)
    - hero has relationship problems (yet again) – which leads to girlfriend being kidnapped for the finale
    - bad guy gets beat by an explosion to the face (goblin grenade – pepper beats killian) only difference was that at spiderman was able to do the final blow himself, using someone elses weapon

    wasnt the first line of the first IM3 trailer RDJ saying something about having a lot of apologies to make – who knew he was talking about the film as a whole

  19. ben kingsley can be the mandarin becasue in iron man three why will he siad he need plastice surgury to look like the real mandarin so more likely trever is a double of the real mandarin and the real one is piss off to treve for fail to finsh the work and piss off with iron man
