“Iron Man 3,” with the reveal that the character that everyone thought was the Mandarin was actually Trevor Slattery (supposedly an actor of some repute in British theater circles) was a pretty bold move.
Some fans rolled with it, while others were a bit peeved. Myself, I thought it was a particularly ballsy move on Marvel’s part. Ben Kingsley was remarkable, and his portrayal of Slattery was fun and an interesting twist.
When I heard that his adventures were being continued in the Marvel One-Shot “All Hail The King” I was jazzed to see it.
And seen it I have, and so can you, and I say that it was worth the wait. It’s a bunch of good, cheeky fun.
Hopefully, Slattery turns up on an episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” That would be all sorts of awesome.
