News of Iron Man 3 villain the Mandarin starring in a new Marvel short film has been circulating for some time -- but today, we get our first official look at Ben Kingsley's return to the role in this clip from All Hail the King.
The new piece takes place after Iron Man 3, and if you haven't seen that movie, you'll most likely want to hold off on viewing the short. There are some spoilers here regarding the Mandarin's part in that story.
What I can safely tell you is that All Hail the King finds Kingsley's Trevor Slattery being interviewed by a documentarian (Argo's Scoot McNairy) as he adjusts to prison life. In jail, Slattery is a hero, but he's not the most forthcoming subject when it comes to revealing his secrets and motivations...
Sample the short below, then prepare to see the full film on February 25. All Hail the King is slated to be amongst the multitude of extras on the upcoming Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray. Could we see more of Trevor Slattery's Mandarin in the future? I hope so -- because I love seeing Ben Kingsley in Marvel movies.
