Along with the latest Marvel One Shot...
Superhero Hype reports that Marvel screened the latest Marvel One-Shot, "All Hail the King", along with the first ten minutes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood, California. The short film stars Ben Kinglsey in his Iron Man 3 role of Trevor Slattery, who is now in prison. The event also featured a Q&A with Kingsley, writer/director Drew Pearce and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. The short film will be released on the blu-ray of Thor: the Dark World, which is available now. It runs for fourteen minutes and features a post-credits scene.
Feige said: "The point of Trevor is to go off the rails."
The short was supposed to be a prequel to Iron Man 3 and Pearce suggested that Trevor wasn't originally set to survive in that film. He added: "He's like a cockroach in the apocalypse."
Kingsley said: "After 'Iron Man 3' wrapped, I was worried about Trevor. I visited him during rehab."
Pearce said that in one sequence in the short, a clip from a fictional TV pilot set in the 1980s feature music from Mike Post (Quantum Leap, Law & Order, Magnum, PI). Pearce contacted Post to get some unused music from that era, but Post decided to make something brand new for the short.
Here are notes from the screening of the first ten minutes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo:
- The film begins with Steve Rogers jogging in Washington DC, outrunning everyone else including Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie). When he realizes he is also in the armed forces, the two begin talking, and Rogers reveals the various pop culture items he's catching up on since his absence (like Star Wars and Star Trek).
- Black Widow then shows up and takes Rogers to a mission in the Indian Ocean rescuing a hijacked ship. S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernandez) is among the hostages. The two begin a stealth run that features a long tracking shot. It is the same sequence shown at Comic-Con, but longer. It features George St-Pierre's Batroc (who speaks in French with English subtitles) who takes control of the ship. There is more Black Widow, including her "Widow's Bite". It's implied the team with them (including Frank Grillo's Crossbones) has a different mission.
