Marvel One-Shot: First Look at Ben Kingsley's Mandarin encore in 'All Hail the King' short film -- EXCLUSIVE

all-hail-the-king-04.jpg

Beware, Iron Man 3 spoilers lie ahead …

Trevor Slattery is ready for an encore. But it’s not always good to be the king.

Marvel’s latest One-Shot short film is aimed at a loose end: Ben Kingsley’s dim-witted Mandarin impersonator from Iron Man 3, who has been locked away in a maximum security prison and is reveling in his newfound infamy. (It’s as close to fame as he’s ever gotten.)

The 14-minute film All Hail the King was written and directed by Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce, and will be included on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray, out Feb. 25. Entertainment Weekly has seen the movie and has the exclusive debut of four pictures from the short – plus details from Pearce about how it all came together.

The short is an epilogue to Iron Man 3 … but you could also see it as a possible prologue to Iron Man 4.

Vin Diesel confirmed as Groot in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Vin Diesel will indeed voice the part of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel announced the news Saturday night, even though rumors have been circling his involvement since August. Diesel even posted an unsubtle cover photo on his facebook page of the monstrous tree months ago. But, nothing confirms it like a photo of the Fast & Furious star hugging a model of his on-screen avatar in front of a giant Guardians logo.

Paul Rudd will star in Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

The rumors that veteran comic actor and current Anchorman 2 star Paul Rudd was in talks for the lead in Marvel’s Ant-Man surfaced earlier this week, and Thursday the studio confirmed the casting news.

The Marvel pic already has a release date of July 31, 2015. It is directed by Edgar Wright (The World’s End) and centers around Pym’s discovery of a size-altering formula and his newfound ability to communicate with and control insects, but even with the casting announcement, Marvel emphasized in a release that the plot of the film is still “under wraps.”

“When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star,” Marvel studio head Kevin Feige said in the release. “We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we’d ever met with about doing the work, we knew we’d found the right guy. We couldn’t be more excited for our audiences to see what he’s going to do to bring Ant-Man to life.”

Other Marvel films on the slate for the next two years include Captain America: The Winter Soldier, due out April 4, 2014; Guardians of the Galaxy set for Aug. 1, 2014; and Avengers: Age of Ultron with James Spader scheduled for a May 1, 2015 release.

REPORT: Paul Rudd in talks to star in Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

Paul Rudd may be best known for his high-profile supporting comedic roles, but the veteran actor might be going the superhero route. The Wrap reports that Rudd has been cast as biochemist Hank Pym in director Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man.

The Kevin Feige-produced Marvel pic already has a release date of July 31, 2015 and centers around Pym’s discovery of a size-altering formula and his newfound ability to communicate with and control insects, but little else is known about Marvel’s newest addition to their big-screen superhero universe. For instance, there may be a second character — Scott Lang — who steals Pym’s discoveries and becomes Ant-Man.

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): 'Iron Man 3' VFX artists on the Mark 42 suit design

Tony Stark is invincible — at least when it comes to the numbers for Iron Man 3, that is. A whopping $174 million at the box office opening weekend. A staggering $409 million domestically. More than $1.2 billion grossed worldwide.

But the genius/billionaire/playboy/philanthropist character who’s appeared in five Marvel films so far was fallible in his third standalone feature, spending much of his post-Avengers time in his basement, designing prototype after prototype of his Iron Man suits to keep his mind off his near-death experience.

The most eye-popping one he built: The Mark 42 (below), which he can summon remotely in individual pieces to his body via sensors he injected under his skin.

Of course, “Tony Stark” didn’t build the suit at all; instead, 1500 visual effects artists worked on the film, and according to Chris Townsend, the film’s visual effects supervisor, at least half of them worked on the Mark 42.

“We ended up having eight [visual effects] companies throughout the world working on that particular suit,” he tells EW. “Hopefully in the end, for the audience, if we’ve done our jobs right, they’ll think from shot to shot, it looks like it’s all created by Tony Stark.”

EW talked to the minds who spearheaded the suit’s concept — the real Tony Starks, if you will — to get a breakdown of the process, from the initial idea to adding Robert Downey Jr.

It's Marvel official: Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in 'Avengers' sequel

The world may have known the casting of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver for awhile, but nothing is set in stone until the almighty gods of superhero movies give the final say. Now, it’s set in stone — Marvel confirms Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) will be playing super-powered twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.

No word yet on how they will be brought into the mega Marvel Cinematic Universe fold, but the addition of the Scarlet Witch seems to suggest the introduction of magic to the alien and tech-dominated MCU. In the Marvel comics, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are mutants — children of formidable metal-wielding mutant, Magneto. Because of the confusing movie rights issues between Marvel and Fox over X-Men (read: mutant) characters, the character Quicksilver will also appear in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. Evan Peters (American Horror Story) plays the speedy mutant in the May 23, 2014, film.

Although Taylor-Johnson and Olsen play siblings in the Avengers sequel, they will be onscreen together as a married husband and wife in the Frank Darabont-penned Godzilla reboot, set to be released May 2014.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is slated for a May 1, 2015, release date.

With 'Thor' sequel, a dark age of Marvel villains is upon us -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The bad guy is winning. Take a look around and you’ll see a new dark age of villains dominating the cinematic landscape, with the antagonists stealing not just individual scenes from the heroes, but in some cases the title of the movie.

Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron are just two examples, and Thor: The Dark World (out Nov. 8) is dominated not just by Tom Hiddleston’s sinister Loki, but by Christopher Eccleston’s creepy, waxen-faced Malekith the Accursed.

In the EW exclusive video below, we get a little more background into this malevolent inhuman, who seeks to reduce time and space to a primitive, darkened state that will allow his race to rule the mythical nine worlds again.

But what’s behind this larger, newfound passion for the wicked, cruel, and misguided in the Marvel universe?

Who were Loki’s bad influences?

Tom Hiddleston’s deliciously wicked performance as the cosmic evildoer in Thor, The Avengers, and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World (out Nov. 8) has made the character just as popular as the heroes he repeatedly antagonizes. Many fans have been begging Marvel Studios for a Loki stand-alone film.

“I’m standing on the shoulder of giants,” Hiddleston tells EW. Here are his top three favorite villains, who inspired his own creation.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' trailer: The star-spangled Avenger returns -- VIDEO

The first official trailer for the Captain America sequel just hit the Internet, and whereas 2011′s The First Avenger was a jaunty retro-throwback wartime adventure, The Winter Soldier finds Cap ensconced in the far more confusing modern age. The trailer is very S.H.I.E.L.D.-heavy, with appearances by Nick Fury, Cap’s high-flying new sidekick the Falcon, an important-looking Robert Redford, and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, who apparently spent the year since Avengers developing the world’s most powerful hair straightener.

Cap’s new outfit looks cool, the whole ’70s paranoid-thriller vibe is cool, and there’s a brief peek at the film’s new baddie, whose precise nature is a kinda-spoiler. Let your nerdy friends tell you all about it — or just check back on EW.com this afternoon for a deeper dive — but for now, watch below:
