Marvel Movies: Ben Kingsley returns in "All Hail The King" & Quicksilver revealed for X-Men: DOFP

"You'll Never See Me Coming..." And those words make a lot of sense for those who have been anxiously waiting on news on two fronts of the Marvel Movie film spectrum - That of the new one-shot film "All Hail The King" attached to the Blu-Ray release of Marvel Studios Thor: The Dark World, and the look of Evan Peters as Pietro Maximoff... aka Magneto's son and Mutant Speedster, Quicksilver!

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we get our first details on what "All Hail The King" actually is, and while many thought it was a Thor Spin-Off featuring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, it actually follows the pattern many Marvel Studios films have done, which peaks at an episode related to the events of a previous film. Now it's continuing a thread that dangled on "Iron Man 3"... The whereabouts of Trevor Slattery, the British actor who portrayed the faux "Mandarin" and played by Sir Ben Kingsley!

"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.)"

Directed by Iron Man 3 screenplay writer Drew Pearce, here's what the man had to say:

"Imagine a real terrorist organization whose beliefs were long held and religious for thousands of years, and imagine a drunk, British actor coming along and essentially telling the world that he’s the face of your organization. I think they would be right to be quite angry."

And what exactly holds next for a fake terrorist inside a maximum security prison? Who knows? but it may build to the events for a succeeding Iron Man sequel if ever!

Meanwhile, a new image has popped up for Bryan Singer's return to directing the X-Men film franchise with this year's X-Men: Days of Future Past! Featuring Hugh Jackman back as Wolverine and Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy reprising their roles as the younger versions of Magneto and Professor X, this pic also happens to show for the very first time Evan Peters as Quicksilver! How he fits in this scene is still a mystery, but it could possibly be breaking his younger and future father out... And how is Xavier still walking after the events of X-Men: First Class? We can only wait until the film hits this May! For more information, visit the source post at Superherohype!

All Hail The King is packed along the Blu-Ray release of Thor: The Dark World, which hits on February 25!

X-Men: Days of Future Past unleashes itself on theaters on May 23, 2014!
