Marvel has been teasing the release of their live-action short films for a minute now. We finally get a chance to see if these One Shot shorts are worth the wait. The first film, titled The Consultant, will be released on the Thor Blu-ray/DVD this September, and features Clark Gregg reprising his role as Agent Coulson.
The clip teases a "day in the life of a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent," and finds Agent Coulson and Agent Sitwell talking about how they plan to approach General Thunderbolt Ross, who you might recall from The Incredible Hulk. If you also remember the post credits scene from that movie, it featured Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark meeting up with the good General in a bar. Smells like this short film will serve as an expansion of the Marvel cinematic universe rather than just an addition.
Thor will hit stores on Blu-ray/DVD on September 13. We'll keep you posted when Marvel's second short, titled A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer, will be available.
