Marvel have unveiled the first moments of All Hail The King, Drew Pearce's Marvel One Shot centred on Ben Kingsley's character from Iron Man 3. The full film will be released as a bonus on the Blu-ray version of Thor: The Dark World.

While there's no embeddable version, you can see the clip at EW.

I don't know if I'm imagining the Natural Born Killers nods and I'd have to go back to Killers to check, really, but that title card is definitely retro-styled on purpose. Maybe Pearce just shares some of the same tastes as Quentin Tarantino.

It's good to see Scoot McNairy at work there. He's a fine actor, and the promise of watching him go toe to toe with Kingsley is a prospect in and of itself. And it's nice to see Marvel throw so much talent at one of these things.

Anyway. I've still not seen the whole thing, though I'm hopeful I will soon. Can't wait.
