When Thor: The Dark World releases on Blu-Ray February 25th, an almost 15 minute Mandarin One-Shot will be included in the bonus content. Entertainment Weekly was given the first released still from Marvel and now we are here to share them with you!
Drew Pearce is the director of this one-shot and in an interview said this about the character of 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.
Now, on to the pictures!
Obviously the Mandarin is the main character in the one-shot, but revealed in the interview with Entertainment Weekly interview it was revealed that Luke Cage will be making a cameo! A few months ago Marvel and Netflix announced that they would join forces and produce four new series and a mini-series based off “lower tier” Marvel characters, one of them being Luke Cage. Will this be our introduction to the Luke Cage series starting in 2015? Odds are yes based off the way Marvel has already interwoven movies and television with Thor: The Dark World and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
You can watch the Mandarin One-Shot on February 25th when it releases with the Thor: The Dark World Blu-Ray.
