"All Hail The King" Easter eggs so far (will update as I find more) Short starts with a quote from King Lear, whom Aldrich Killian said Trevor Slattery portrayed In the comics, Jackson Norriss was a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and an associate of The Defenders who have recently been confirmed to appear in the Netflix series. The NSA footage of the Mandarin gives a date to the footage reused from the ~8:06 mark in Iron Man 3 - April 2, 2011 15:09:04:15 The names above prison cells refer to Marvel characters. Guido Carboni and Luis Allegre are part of the Maggia crime syndicate in the Marvel Universe. It is worthy to note that Allegre is a member of the Costa Family, in the comics they murdered Frank Castle’s family. The short takes place in Seagate Prison. In the comics, it is a maximum security prison off Georgia coast and notable for holding Luke Cage who has recently been confirmed to appear in the Netflix series. While asking who to eat lunch with, he mentions Nonces - British slang for sex offenders Herman mentions Trevor turned down a 60 Minutes exclusive to which Trevor declares he did so because he will never work for CBS again, setting up a later reveal The inmate who asks Trevor to do his Mandarin voice is Fletcher Heggs. In the comics, he was Knight - who worked for Obidiah Stane. If you looks closely at Heggs' tattoo, it's of a chess pawn. Trevor does one of his Mandarin lines from the ~09:23 mark of Iron Man 3, "You'll never see me coming." Norriss' watch is a Casio Data Bank calculator watch Trevor admits he misses Ketamine, a general anesthetic Trevor admits he misses 'the birds', his term for women which he coined in Iron Man 3 at 1:15:48 mark when Tony confronts him Herman hands Trevor a Budweiser, which appeared to be his preferred drink in Iron Man 3 Norriss refers to Aldrich Killian and alludes to A.I.M. as "his think tank" Norriss mentions getting a photo from the Liverpool Echo, an actual newspaper The photo of Trevor and his mother is in front of the Royal Court Theatre in Sloan Square, London. Trevor mentions his first role was for Shakespeare's Tempest, Boatswain 1. The title of Trevor Slattery's CBS show, "Caged Heat," was the code name for Iron Man 3 during production. Trevor drives a 320 GTS An actress credited in the "Caged Heat" pilot is Priscilla Everhart. Perhaps she is the mother is Christine Everhart from Iron Man and Iron Man 2. The criminals wearing tracksuit in the "Caged Heat" pilot are based off Hawkeye villains called the Tracksuit Draculas as a thank you from Drew Pearce to Matt Fraction for some ideas used in Iron Man 3 One of the actors credited in the "Caged Heat" pilot is Rick Hawkins. This was the name of a character Iron Man 3 director Shane Black portrayed in the 1987 film "Predator" The vodka drinking monkey is Crystal from The Hangover II Mike Post is credited with music for the "Caged Heat" pilot. He is an award winning composer best known for his TV theme songs for shows like Law & Order, NYPD Blue, The Rockford Files, L.A. Law, Quantum Leap, Magnum, P.I. and Hill Street Blues. Trevor tells an anecdote about Sean Connery Among Norriss' files of the Ten Rings, there is a photo of Raza from the first Iron Man movie It is "re-confirmed" there is a real The Mandarin A map of Europe is shown with Caria and Lydia circled in red with 1412 written Trevor mentions Googling himself Trevor exclaims people keep pointing guns at him, a nod to Iron Man 3 when Tony and Rhodes held guns to him Justin Hammer is an inmate at Seagate, this is the first time he's been seen since the end of Iron Man 2 Justin Hammer refers to Pepper Potts and reads a Forbes magazine featuring her new role as CEO of Stark Industries In Iron Man 3, Savin read a copy of the same issue of Forbes magazine The milk brand is Driftwood Dairy, an actual company Justin Hammer refers to his Hammer Drones Justin cracks a joke that Trevor is the love child of Osama bin Laden and Benny Hill Justin mentions Tony Stark, and is still delusional about their relationship The structure of the short loosely follows an Iron Man comic story titled "Mandarin: The Story of My Life", where the Mandarin tells a filmmaker his life story.
