Thor: The Dark World Box Art and All Hail the King One-Shot Clip

Check out what the cover for the Blu-Ray/DVD release of Thor: The Dark World and a clip from the one-shot All Hail the King!

Thor: The Dark World will be hitting store shelves on Tuesday, February 4th, and here's a look at the cover art, for the Blu-Ray and the combo pack.

In addition, here a clip from All Hail the King, a Marvel One-Shot that finds out what happened to Trevor Slattery.

After the events of Iron Man 3, Trevor Slattery is locked up in a high-security prison. He has gained widespread infamy and is the subject of an in-depth profile for a documentary film.

Is there something more to Trevor or is he truly a patsy? This one-shot will explore that. If you can't view the video, then we have a few stills to wet your whistle.

What do you guys think?

It's kinda a bad sign when the main villain isn't on the cover

@jonny_anonymous:

while i agree, the villain isn't recognizable to the public. they won't buy it for malikith. they want thor, or even more loki

That All Hail the King clip makes me think that there's a psychological route they are taking the story of Trevor Slattery. Second personality called The Mandarin maybe?

I really enjoyed this movie, I know people didn't care much for the main villain, but I honestly enjoyed Thor's team-up with Loki more anyways.

Narration's a little flat in that clip. Looking forward to it anyway.

I thought the same thing. He sounded very emotionless and as if he didn't want to be there...though maybe that's the point? From the way he sounded he apparently wasn't getting the answers he wanted, so maybe his tone was because of that? The one-shot is apparently suppose to have the real Ten Rings involved in it, so I'm curious if Marvel is going to use this one-shot to try and win fans back over after Iron Man 3.

release date?

@jonny_anonymous: Villains very rarely make the covers of DVD/Blu-Ray. Really the only ones in recent memory that have are Captain America, the first Thor, the first Iron Man, and Th Dark Knight. And even as popular as the Joker is, he was only on the cover to certain releases of that film.

this dvd should stickers on the cover saying "from the people who made Robert Downey Jr 3" & "its based in same world as Robert Downey Jr" & "featuring stuff that will used as extra's in Robert Downey Jr and the others 2" & "special feature "Hail to King" where we confirm we are making awful comedy's because we think our audience is stupid also and we need to milk out much out the sole popularity of Robert Downey Jr"

then at the bottom in tiny text possible "contains thor 2 dvd"

Is the one-shot only on blu-ray?

Posted by SkullKnight

The Mandarin needs to be revealed completely next time...

@jonny_anonymous: I agree, I liked the movie, but its biggest problem was that the apparent "main" villain was basically a plot device.

Looks nice.

Did his British accent sound a little faked in that clip to anyone else? ALL HAIL THE MANDARIN!

Poor Malekith. This was probably his one chance to shine.

Thor 2 was terrible. I do plan to get it on blu ray someday to complete my Marvel collection but I won't waste $25 on the day it comes out just to watch the short.

As some one who just got Netflix I take it the release date is the same for Netflix ?

Posted by goobot

Is the one shot on the online version?

Edited by Smurfboy

Day one!! I'm surprise this movie gets release so early (next Month). I thought it'll be April or something. I was not able to find the right time to go to the theater and see it! Still! With my family, work, my kid, everything's full. Indeed to say, I cannot wait to get this blu-ray on day one!

Well, if he wasn't played by Eccleston, I wouldn't have remembered him !

@amazingwebhead: He's British in real life

Okay, so I'm jumping to conclusions because of my desperate hope that we'll see the real Mandarin in some way shape or form. Can you blame me?

this dvd should stickers on the cover saying "

from the people who made Robert Downey Jr 3

" & "

its based in same world as Robert Downey Jr

" & "

featuring stuff that will used as extra's in Robert Downey Jr and the others 2

" & "

special feature "

Hail to King

" where we confirm we are making awful comedy's because we think our audience is stupid also and we need to milk out much out the sole popularity of Robert Downey Jr

"

HA! That is so true. Iron Man is the Wolverine/Batman/Ben 10/Loki of the Avengers

Posted by JakeBat

Dumb idea. I mean first off, Aldrich Killian was a horrible villain. Yes he did some horrible stuff but his motivation is so pathetic it ruins it. Second, so we're wasting a short on a joke character if it turns out not to be the real Mandarin then causes

1. That should've been in the movie & 2. Makes Killian shouting "I AM THE MANDARIN!" no sense

They should just retcon Iron Shit 3. Ignore it like it never happened because the movie sucked so hard & had so many problems besides the fact Tony only became Iron Man now because of a pissed off fanboy.

Just watched All Hail The King and I enjoyed it. I think if you wanted the real Mandarin or were disappointed that Trevor was the Mandarin this will at least give you some kind of hope.
