We’ve known for a while that Marvel Studios where interested in creating short films especially those characters that may not be good or strong enough to earn a feature film and so to give those characters some screen time via the shorts. During last weeks Comic Con at The Marvel Studio panel the fans where given a chance to preview the first MARVEL-ONE SHOT (the series name) THE CONSULTANT about Agent Coulson played by Clark Gregg in THOR and next summers AVENGERS. The short is to appear on the DVD release of THOR as one of the movies special features.
This is the first of two self-contained stories about the day in the life of the infamous S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, the second, entitled Marvel One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer, will be released by Marvel in the near future.
