I just got Thor the Dark World On VUDU and went straight to "All Hail The King". The one shot Producers promised will rectify the entire Mandarin fiasco from Iron Man 3.

It appears the real Mandarin is quite upset about Mr. Slattery's performance of him and has sent in one of his operatives to extract Trevor to face punishment from him personally.

Trevor being high as a kite as always still didn't get where the conversation was going and asks if he knows who the operative is talking about to which the Ten Rings Operative posing as a journalist replies




"You took his name... And he wants it Back!"

Also in a surprise post credits scene it is revealed that Justin Hammer is alive and well And Funny as ever) and resents the attention Trevor is getting.


Since the real Mandarin was not in the short this gives Marvel free range to cast whoever they decide to go with when they do decide to use the Character down the line.

So what do you think? Does this change your feelings towards last year's "Ironman 3"? And who would you cast as "The Mandarin"? Leave your thoughts at the usual place!

Yay.

Put in EDITORIALS.

It truly makes IRON MAN 3 a better film, and should be seen as an extra long after-credits scene.
Pedrito - 2/4/2014, 6:10 PM
It doesn't change my feelings. IM3 was fantastic as it was.
Awesome to see Trevor and Hammer, though.

Shit, they better cast an actual Asian actor this time, and actually have them loom like their comic book counterpart.

*look

They handled it well, and now I would be very excited to see the real mandarin if we were to ever get an Iron Man 4.

Yea....So tey shit on a great character, and pass up a golden opportunity to use The Mandarin. Only after realizing the error of their ways, do they try to cover their asses. No thank you, Disney's Marvel Studios, no thank you.

i still really like IM3,it doesnt change my feelings on that film but all hail the king was great,Sir Ben Kingsley was on top form
Poolio - 2/4/2014, 6:19 PM
So Marvel gave in. It's a good thing too, it makes Iron Man 3 just a tiny bit less of a pile of shit.
AlexanderLykins - 2/4/2014, 6:19 PM
So I was almost exactly right?
Dinotron - 2/4/2014, 6:23 PM
Trevor was ALWAYS impersonating the true Mandarin, it alluded to it in IM3. They just never showed the true Mandarin
ManCalledSting - 2/4/2014, 6:23 PM
I'm sorry, but this little addition numerous months later, doesn't make IM3 better.

Thank you for spoiling this for me in the title of your article.

EDITORIAL, MOVE IT.
DynamicDynamo - 2/4/2014, 6:25 PM
This was shot during Iron Man 3 and before the fan reaction to The Mandarin. So, this was always the plan.
Dinotron - 2/4/2014, 6:25 PM
How can the mandarin be an AI if he had plastic surgery to look like him? AIs dont have facial features
DaVinci31 - 2/4/2014, 6:26 PM
On a side note, why hasn't anyone made an article on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's recent hashtag on Instagram?

*Snip*

Did you hear that? That was the sound of Marvel's balls being snipped by fan pressure.

"Shit. The fans actually hated the Mandarin we came up with. Let's fix it in a one shot and act like it was the plan all along."


Hey @Marvel! While you're at it, why don't you make a Tony Stark one-shot where To y wakes up to find that Iron Man 3 was just a disappointing dream!
AlexanderLykins - 2/4/2014, 6:29 PM
@MrBlackJack
Seriously? How about DC gets it act together before Marvel gets a Raccoon on the screen before Wonder Woman, Flash and Martian Manhunter? How about that?
npamusic - 2/4/2014, 6:29 PM
@GoldenOne33 ROGER WARDELL IS A FRAUD MY FRIEND, believe drivel for no reason dude. He's no right "98%" of the time, and he's withered away ever since marvel found out that he was leaking information. He was wrong most of the time and this "Roger Wardell2" person is a fabrication of the real Roger, who has not tweeted anything in MONTHS. But hey, believe wat you want friend.
AlexanderLykins - 2/4/2014, 6:30 PM
So Marvel is giving the fans what they want? I love Marvel Studios!
monkeyballs - 2/4/2014, 6:30 PM
Dwayne Johnson's been juicing too much. Superman will can wipe his ass with John Stewart.
HavocPrime - 2/4/2014, 6:31 PM
that was a really cool one shot, and this is what Agents of Shield should be like tbh
DaVinci31 - 2/4/2014, 6:31 PM
@MrBlackJack

Ah, I guess I missed it.
AlexanderLykins - 2/4/2014, 6:32 PM
@NPaMusic
I think the first Roger Wardell actually got ahold of script leaks and heard whispers from Marvel. I agree that the second Roger Wardell account is a complete fraud.
ezio619 - 2/4/2014, 6:32 PM
IM3 will be a controversial movie till the end of time, it had sucha mixed/ divisive response that its insane how much people have talked about this thing
BritishMonkey - 2/4/2014, 6:34 PM
I still think Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin is a wasted opportunity and a shame is involvment was resorted to a ruse but I guess it'll do after seeing the one shot and what happened in it.

Now for who else might play The Mandarin? Ken Watanabe I suppose.
TheAmbassador - 2/4/2014, 6:35 PM
Regardless of the politics, I enjoyed the Trevor Slattery bit and I'm excited to see what they're doing with The Mandarin.

Shane Black was saying all along "You can't do the Mandarin like that" Just be glad that we're getting The Mandarin AT ALL
AlexanderLykins - 2/4/2014, 6:35 PM
@MrBlackJack
Says the guy with a Batman avatar.
npamusic - 2/4/2014, 6:36 PM
@GoldenOne33 believe what you want but some of things he spouted out were ridiculous.
monkeyballs - 2/4/2014, 6:36 PM
@AlexanderLykins if by "fans" you mean "suckers" then yes. Marvel will be giving them what they want.

And to whomever said that Marvel filmed this during the filming of IM3... Bullshit. You must be a sucker too.

SPOILERS IN THE TITLE YOU DUMMY

npamusic - 2/4/2014, 6:37 PM
@AlexanderLykins I think you're right, but most of what he said was wrong. He had like 1/4 of things right, and the rest were completely wrong.
npamusic - 2/4/2014, 6:38 PM
MArvel didn't film this during Iron Man 3, they did it months and months afterwards.

Avengers 2 opens with this prison break... Mandarin (AI) will seek to use Trevor as its actual host body.

Justin Hammer cameo, maybe he'll get out in the prison break...

Emil Blonsky reference in SHIELD tonight... Maybe they'll get him too, and the Clairvoyant (The Leader) will all be the masters of evil in the first half of the film while setting up Ultron
TheRationalNerd - 2/4/2014, 6:39 PM
So glad us Mandarin fans got this! And to think people on this sit claimed "No one's even a Mandarin fan" It really pays to have an opinion of your own and anticipation of the real character or deity. Hopefully we'll see more of the Mandarin in AoU. But please no Iron Man 4. Phase 3 needs many more new guys to appear, time to let other heroes shine or reclaim their light (Hulk, Black Panther or possibly Inhumans)
