The wait between Marvel Cinematic Universe feature films can be excruciating. Thankfully, Marvel helps ease the pain with short films called One-Shots, which are canon within the larger story of the feature films. So far, most DVD/Blu-ray releases have had One-Shots such as Item 47 and Agent Carter. Last year’s Thor: The Dark World hits Blu-ray February 25, and will features a One-Shot called All Hail The King.
After you put away that crazy fanboy notion of Ash showing up in the MCU, it’s time to seriously think about what the title could mean. The most obvious thought would be in regards to the end of Thor: The Dark World where (MAJOR SPOILERS) Loki takes the throne of Asgard posing as Odin. Something showing how that confrontation and abduction went down would be excellent. Or maybe a short revealing Odin’s current whereabouts.
Don’t forget, though, Ben Kingsley said he filmed a short film for Marvel a few months back. Could this short be the reveal of the true terrorist “King,” the Mandarin?
We’ll likely find out sooner rather than later as Marvel isn’t as hyper secretive with these as they are with the features.
