The Evidence That Suggests All Hail The King Is A “Mandarin” Related Marvel One Shot

Exhibit A: a tweet from Iron Man 3 and No Heroics screenwriter Drew Pearce.

Exhibit B: One Shots have never related specifically to the feature film with which they share the disc. The Hulk-related The Consultant was on the Thor disc; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer was on the Captain America disc; Agent Carter was on the Iron Man 3 disc. And Item 47... um… is the exception that proves the rule. Proves it.

Exhibit C: Ben Kingsley has already shot something, and based on what happened with Agent Carter the timing is right for it to be this.

Exhibit D: Trevor Slattery’s King Lear was the talk of Croydon.

I rest my case. And, on the basis of Exhibit D, I’m pretty confident we know exactly which King the title refers to, and who it was hailing him.

So… I’m thinking we’re set for some kind of recruitment story, likely featuring a nice speedboat.
