After playing second fiddle to Nick Fury, Tony Stark and Thor, Phil Coulson is finally getting his just deserts. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent stars in a new short film aptly titled Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant.
The first clip from The Consultant features footage that fills in the gap of time between Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk. [Spoilers ahead] Do you remember when Tony Stark made a surprise visit to General Ross? Were you wondering why they sent Stark instead of somebody—anybody—else? Here's your answer.
The Consultant fun doesn't stop here—there's more to come. Marvel also has a soon-to-be-released short called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer. In it, Coulson and a few supporting characters will bridge the gap between the action in Iron Man 2 and Thor.
Agent Coulson might not have the prestige and honor of Nick Fury, but at least he gets a mini-movie highlighting his cool, behind-the-scenes antics.
Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant will appear on the DVD, Blu-ray and 3-D Blu-ray of Thor, which hits shelves on Sept. 13.
