Official Marvel Studios Logo New Marvel One Shot Title Revealed Alongside Thor 2 Blu ray Details

After The Avengers hit theaters and became the third highest grossing film of all-time, we spoke with executive producer Louis D’Esposito about how Marvel Studios planned to continue that success on its home video release. The answer was simple and from their own research it came down to providing consumers with new and original content – short films we know as Marvel One-Shots. D’Esposito even directed the most recent two.

The One-Shots began in 2011 with the home video releases of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, both of which featured shorts starring Clark Gregg’s fan-fave Agent Coulson character. There have been rumors for years now that since Marvel is now under the Disney umbrella, Marvel Studios could perhaps one day embrace the Pixar short format where before theatrical releases they could use the Marvel  One-Shots to introduce other characters and storylines and see if they test well across wide audiences. That’s not currently in the cards, but more Marvel One-Shots are on the way, the next of which comes with the home video release of Thor: The Dark World.

Marvel Studios’ other 2013 release, Iron Man 3, is already available on home video and its Blu-ray release included a One-Shot titled Agent Carter which brought back Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter character – and some familiar supporting characters- from The First Avenger. It was well-received and is on its way to potentially spawning a live-action TV series on ABC

For Thor: The Dark World, which just recently finished its main run in theaters, the first details on its Blu-ray release have surfaced online thanks to the British Board of Film Classification. As expected, the home video version (on Blu) will include another Marvel One-Shot alongside the usual set of bonuses, from deleted scenes, a preview of the studio’s next big release (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), along with several featurettes. Complete list below:

  • ALL HAIL THE KING – A MARVEL ONE-SHOT
  • A BROTHERS JOURNEY – THOR & LOKI (PART 1)
  • A BROTHERS JOURNEY – THOR & LOKI (PART 2)
  • EXCLUSIVE LOOK – CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

It’s a safe bet that Marvel will be playing up the Loki factor as much as they can when Thor: The Dark World hits home video. Tom Hiddleston was the focus of their international press tour and for us at Screen Rant, Loki stole the show in the film, overshadowing Christopher Eccleston’s Malekith character – the marketed primary antagonist.

Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 New Marvel One Shot Title Revealed Alongside Thor 2 Blu ray Details

As for the Marvel One-Shot titled All Hail The King. the title at first glance could reference Loki’s new position on the throne of Asgard. By the end of Thor: The Dark World, there are a few questions left unanswered – namely, where is Odin, how did Loki takover, and what does Loki plan to do as the leader of Asgard with his adopted father’s disguise?

We know that Ben Kingsley returned to work with some of the Iron Man 3 crew on an upcoming Marvel One-Shot as well, one that was rumored to potentially reveal/introduce the “real” Mandarin character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the character was used as a deception and twist in Iron Man 3 – one that some fans of Iron Man comics didn’t appreciate. So if the short film isn’t about Loki, Odin and Asgard, it’s possible we get to see Kingsley’s Trevor Slattery character return. Then again, screenwriter Drew Pearce went on record denying that possibility:

“One thing I know for sure: nobody’s going to be apologizing for the Mandarin twist any time soon.”

What would you like to see from All Hail The King?

  1. I read the comics and I loved the Trevor twist. I’m still holding out that as a post credits scene we see a sober and angry Trevor in prison, obsessing over Tony Stark. He gets told he has a visitor. He comes out and it’s the big purple dude we all love. Thanos tells Trevor he can get the revenge he wants in exchange for his loyalty/access to an infinity gem. . .something. In his Mandarin voice Trevor asks “Where do we begin?” Thanos hands him an ornate box, shift to a shot of the box opening, ten rings. Iron Man 4.

    • That sounds kind of cool

    • Best thing I’ve read so far on this.

    • That’s actually not a bad idea.. sadly, it would never happen. :(

    • I’d be cool with that.

  2. I am of the idea that if they screwed things really bad with the Mandarin issue, they need to keep it that way. Yes, I would like to see the TRUE MANDARIN someday but Why are they changing their move by Re-doing the stupidity (sorry) they have done?…Or Maybe they will only make a really bad taste joke in a Marvel One Shot to make IM3 haters even more angry, but I think its the same. Have some pride and just give it a rest IM3 crew!

  3. It will surely be about Loki – unless it’s a set up for Guardians of the Galaxy and it refers to a different alien king…

  4. Could it be that Loki is controlling Trevor slattery, and from that we get the ‘real’ Mandarin

    • We already have the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 – he just happens to be different than in the comics.

  5. My problem with the Trevor Twist has nothing to do with any sacrilege towards the comic character.

    Flat out, Ben Kingsley was a better bad guy than Guy Pearce.

    Once ans awhile that epic movie villain comes along. Kingsley had that going, with a better second half script that movie goes down as one of the best ever. Just like the first one was. Instead it’s middle of the road nothing special. IMO. It’s not so much that I hated the twist as much as I hated that Ben Kingsley suddenly wasn’t a thing anymore. I was really lookin forward to more of what he was doing. And while completely castrating your main villain was different, the Guy Pearce storyline was very cliche, and I saw him as a bad guy a mile away, him and the girl.

  6. I see know problem with ‘Trevor Slattery’ actually being the Mandarin. Having him fool everybody including Stark in to thinking he was an idiot like that would be genius.

  7. So Ben Kingsley was called back in to shoot additional scenes right?

    Here are my theories…

    1. Since IM3 and Captain America 2 deal with terrorism, it may be that we will get Kingsley as the real Mandarin or his character alluding to Mandarin in Cap 2 in a button scene, during the movie as a cameo, or as a One Shot on Cap 2 DVD.
    OR…
    2. Maybe we will see Loki enlist services of Ben Kingsley’s character “Trevor” to become the next terrorist “symbol” of Mandarin… and by giving him some sort of power rings or device?

    • My biggest fear, it’s going to be Trevor doing King Lear, and I’m going to be so pissed.

      • That may as well be so. crap.

  8. 1.) It is probably an Elvis reference
    2.) Why couldn’t it introduce the King of Wakanda, Black Panther?

  9. Just watched it with my digital copy of Thor 2.

    I really enjoyed it. Was a lot of fun… but I’ll let you guys watch to find out what really happened.

  10. You will not only be able to watch each of the movies but when you want to copy onto
    a CD; then it is possible to do it legally. Therefore, you can save your hair a packet and merely wait until the
    newest movie is out on DVD and watch it
    in your house for free. TV, for instance,
    has changed so much inside last couple of years, that the industry is on par with i .
    t ., by incorporating set top boxes becoming
    obsolete after just a few months, with newer
    features being added – for example HD, space for storing for recorded programs, and even gaming facilities.
