We’re all going to get to see just what happened to The Mandarin in an upcoming Marvel one-shot that has the drunken Trevor Slattery dealing with prison life. The bit was written and directed by Drew Pearce who says,
“He is living a somewhat curtailed version of the celebrity life, but he’s also leading arguably a better life than he did when he was living with, like, four other actors at the age of 52 in some bedsit in the south of London. That’s the other fun thing about the starting point is that when we meet Trevor in the short, Trevor won. The Mandarin didn’t, but Trevor in his own way was victorious.”
He also said they’ll be plenty of name dropping, hints on what to expect next in the Marvel movie universe, and maybe even a little something about the chances of another Iron Man movie.
The one-shot, titled Hail to the King, will be one of the many features included with the Thor: The Dark World DVD and Blu-ray release on February 25th.
