Foto’s Marvel one-shot All Hail the King

All Hail the King

Entertainment Weekly heeft de eerste foto’s en details vrijgegeven van Marvel’s One-Shot All Hail the King, waarin Ben Kingsley terugkeert in de rol van Trevor Slattery. Deze rol speelde hij eerder in Iron Man 3.

De 14-minuten durende short zal vlak na de gebeurtenissen in Iron Man 3 beginnen. We zien Trevor in de Seagate gevangenis en hij mag zijn eerste interview houden sinds zijn opsluiting. Scoot McNairy zal de interviewer spelen.

Iron Man 3 en All Hail the King schrijver Drew Pearce zei:

“Imagine a real terrorist organization whose beliefs were long held and religious for thousands of years, and imagine a drunk, British actor coming along and essentially telling the world that he’s the face of your organization. I think they would be right to be quite angry.”

Pearce liet ook weten dat het idee voor een One-Shot afkomstig is van Marvel’s The Avengers schrijver/regisseur Joss Whedon.

“‘The Further Adventures of Trevor’ was something we had talked about on set all the time, and when we sat down to talk about what the short would be, it was Stephen [Broussard, executive producer of Iron Man 3] and Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and myself and Joss Whedon and Jeremy Latcham [executive producer of The Avengers.] So we kicked around a bunch of ideas and there were loads of them that we liked, and it was actually Joss who at a certain point went like, ‘Or you could do the one that has Sir Ben Kingsley in it because you have access to Sir Ben Kingsley.’ 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. You know, whether that’s an Iron Man movie or another one going into Phase Two or Three.”

All Hail the King zal te zien zijn op de DVD en Blu-ray van Thor: The Dark World, welke te koop is vanaf 25 februari.
