After the events of Iron Man 3, Trevor Slattery is an infamous icon. He's also locked up in a high-security prison. Luckily, his newfound profile has brought him celebrity and protection on the inside - and the actor has gladly agreed to an in-depth profile with a documentary filmmaker.Written by
Matt Gerald, the actor who portrays the inmate "White Power Dave" is the only other person apart from Alfre Woodard and Kenneth Choi to play two separate characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Apart from playing Dave in this One-Shot, he also plays Melvin Potter in the Marvel/Netflix show Daredevil (2015), a very key character to Matt Murdock/Daredevil's story, as he designed his combat suit.

Ben Kingsley returns in this wonderful One-Shot, and he doesn't disappoint. The 'twist' in Iron Man 3 had the fandom divided, some people liking Trevor Slattery and the others hating him, but this One-Shot gives the answer to how the hate was misdirected after all. Before I go let me tell you this wasn't a work of appeasement, or Marvel tracking back their footsteps, though they tease it a little when Trevor says, "Once an actor plays a part for too long he becomes the character...", or something. On the contrary the One-Shot establishes the Ten-Rings connection from the first Iron Man and shows that there is yet more depth to uncover in Iron Man's own side story. TLDR: It's an awesome ride for MCU and Iron Man movie fans, though if you are just a regular movie goer, chances are that you won't get what all the fuss is about.
