Oscar winnende acteur Ben Kingsley sprak in een interview over het personage The Mandarin/Trevor Slattery uit Iron Man 3. Binnenkort verschijnt Marvel One-Shot All Hail the King, waarvoor Kingsley zal terugkeren. Hij vertelde:
“I missed Trevor – I was worried about him! The script was so beautiful. I never changed a line or distorted it. I might have added some nuance or rhythm to it that was perhaps unexpected even to Drew but I didn’t stray off it at all. I love telling the story. I love being useful to the telling of the story – and his story was so charming in a way. Trevor’s a very vulnerable man. And he’s a great survivor. Even in prison, he creates his own environment. It’s always good to find something in a character you admire and I admire Trevor’s capacity to survive and adapt. He’s a chameleon.”
In All Hail the King, welke te zien is op de Blu-Ray van Thor: The Dark World, zijn ook de personages Jackson Norriss (Scoot McNairy), Herman (Lester Speight) en Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) te zien.
