Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin Returns For A Marvel One-Shot

Iron Man 3 Mandarin
Marvel Studios

The secret project Sir Ben Kingsley was working with Marvel Entertainment to produce has finally been revealed: It’s a 14-minute short film (or as Marvel calls them, “One-Shots”) focusing on what happened to The Mandarin in the aftermath of Iron Man 3.

The film, written and directed by Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce, will be titled “All Hail the King” and be included in the Thor: The Dark World Blu-Ray, which is set to come out February 25. Check out a handful of screenshots from the One-Shot after the jump!

Entertainment Weekly reports that the film, which finds The Mandarin (or, to spoil Iron Man 3 for you a bit, the hard-luck actor who portrayed him) in a maximum security prison, “is an epilogue to Iron Man 3 … but you could also see it as a possible prologue to Iron Man 4.”

Pearce describes the One-Shot’s story this way:

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.
