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

Iron Man 3 Mandarin

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!

Sif Makes A Surprise Visit To ‘Thor’ Fans At Children’s Hospital

Sif Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Marvel.com

Confession: we have no idea what the holiday season is like in Asgard. Fortunately, we now have evidence that they fully embrace the holiday spirit in the best possible way. Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, made a surprise visit to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and spent time with some of the kids there, many of whom won't be able to spend Thanksgiving at home. Dressed in full Sif regalia, Alexander brought gifts, signed autographs and took pictures with the kids as they held her sword and shield.

If, like us, you were already of the opinion that both Thor films could use a lot more Sif screen time, this is just one more reason to appreciate both the character and the actress. You can check out a bunch of pictures from Alexander's visit below, and if you'd like to help these kids, head to the Children’s Hospital website. You can also participate in the Conan O’Brien hosted Crowdrise Celebrity Holiday Challenge.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.08: ‘The Well’

Agents of SHIELD

 

What is it about former Star Trek actors that brings out the best in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD? Until this week I'd say the series' strongest episode was 1.05, "Eye-Spy," directed by Star Trek: Voyager's Roxann Biggs, aka B'Elanna Torres.

This week's episode was directed by Jonathan Frakes -- Star Trek: The Next Generation's William Riker -- and it was the new best episode of the series so far. More than that; it was the first episode I'd actually feel comfortable recommending to friends who gave up on the show after the lackluster pilot. (Or the lackluster second episode, or the lackluster third episode.)

Spoilers follow.

‘Man At Arms’ Recreates Thor’s Hammer, Sadly Does Not Allow You To Call Lightning To Smite Thine Foes

Man At Arms Screenshot

Marvel's fair-haired Odison is back in theaters with Thor: The Dark World, and that means that public interest in beating things to death with a magic hammer is at an all-time high, particularly for people who were already interested in fictional weaponry to begin with. Such is the case for Master Swordsmith Tony Swatton, star of the Man at Arms series of web videos, who was deluged with requests to build a replica of Thor's hammer and obliged this week.

Now obviously, the only real way to build Mjölnir is to have the dwarves of Svartalfheim forge it from mystical Uru metal in a forge powered by the heat of a dying star and then imbue it with the Odinpower, but failing that, Swatton does a pretty decent job. Check out his work in the video below!

‘Thor: The Dark World’ Is A Good Time At The Movies (Most Of The Time) [Review]

Thor 2

If you boiled down Marvel's movies to a basic formula, the first Thor film would be a perfect example of it. It's got some decent superhero action, a lot of shoehorned-in S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff, and one huge feather in its cap: A sense of humor about itself and its characters.

Luckily, the new sequel, Thor: The Dark World, is like its predecessor in that it's not afraid to include some levity. As long as that keeps up, it's a jaunty, enjoyable flick. It's only when the movie gets capital-s Serious -- and luckily that's not too often -- that it gets into some trouble.

Stan Lee Says Thor Flying Makes More Sense Than Superman, The Angry Nerd… Doesn’t [Video]

Mjolnir Physics
Stan Lee's World of Heroes/Wired

As the famed co-creator of much of the Marvel Comics universe and cameo king of its current crop of films, Stan Lee enjoys a certain amount of leeway (*ba-dump!) when it comes to opining about pop culture. Take this week's installment of the serialized "Stan's Rants" video series. Lee somewhat dramatically explains that Thor's method of flight makes more sense to him than Superman's. While Superman's solar-powered Kryptonian cells enable him to navigate any axis without an explanation besides "He can," Thor has to chuck his mystical uru mallet Mjolnir in the direction he wishes to travel and catch a ride by holding onto its attached thong. As Wired's Angry Nerd points out, however, Thor's way is still a violation of the laws of physics fit for the gods.
