Marvel One-Shot Mandarin Photos!

All we knew about the Marvel One-Shot, up to this point, was that it would feature the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) aka Trevor Slattery and be almost 15 minutes long. Well Entertainment Weekly has some photos and some choice tidbits about the short that arrives on Thor: The Dark World’s Blu-ray (Feb. 25th). 

Drew Pearce who wrote and directed the short had this to saw about Trevor Slattery: “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." 

Check out the full 4 page exclusive interview here.  The other big reveal is that Luke Cage will make a cameo.

Whoa I didn't know that bit about Luke Cage. It makes sense since it is Seagate Prison.

Marvel may be laying down the seeds for the Netflix series with Cage.

Well I hope they are laying a seed for Luke Cage, because they laid a big, fat pile of steaming manure with the whole Trevor Slattery / Mandarin crap in Iron Man 3...

 I remember when everyone thought Thor was fighting Luke Cage in the first Thor film (it supposedly was the guard by the hammer) Anyhoo, will be good to see some Powerman action and I'll be watching this short for sure. By the way... I liked Trevor. Give him a netflix series.

I guess I will wait for the Phase II special box set...might take a while but, should be fun.

 So then does this mean the real Mandarin will come into the MCU movies? The Chinese one that kicks ass and is basically an evil Tony Stark with alien technology?

If that is true and then they make the real Mandarin come in that would kick so much ass. Then they need for the real Mandarin to be the villain in the next Iron Man movie.

And they had better make him Chinese! The man who was in the Grand Master, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, would make for one kick ass Mandarin.

Also, they would not be setting Luke Cage up for anything in any movies as they are making the Netflix show of him with Iron Fist, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones.

I didn't mind the whole Trevor Slattery approach because I don't think we've seen the real Mandarin yet.

I really think that Shane Black wanted Trevor to be the fake Mandarin. I do not believe that they had originally intended for the retcon of the movie to introduce the real Mandarin into the mix. This was planned after Marvel realized that Shane Black and crew fucked it all up. This is a fix, not a plan.

I love Trevor. Marvel should give him his own show
