Video: Ben Kingsley as “Mandarin” returns in new short Marvel film: “All Hail The King”

Posted Jan 16, 2014

“The Mandarin” (real name: Trevor Slattery)  was played by Sir Ben Kingsley in “Iron Man 3.” In the Iron Man movie, The Mandarin was looked upon as a scary villain on TV, but he was actually a washed-up drunken actor as discovered by Iron Man.

There is a new Marvel One-Shot short film called “All Hail The King,” which will be debuting in “Thor: The Dark World” Blu-ray release. Marvel released a sneak-peak clip from the short film. The short film is narrated by Scoot McNairy (playing a character named Jackson Norris) of “Argo” and “Killing Them Softly.”

Norris said that The Mandarin was the “most infamous prisoner in America, a man that the world thought was a terrorist known as ‘The Mandarin,’ but is now alleged to be nothing but an actor.”

The clip shows Slattery in an orange jumpsuit walking into prison. When entering the jail, he says “Bloody hell.”

“It’s not exactly the Ritz, is it?”

The Blu-ray releases with the short film will arrive on February 25th.
