Watch: The Consultant, A SHIELD Short Film From Marvel

Anton Volkov, the man who seemed determined to leak all the Tron he could, is back, and this time, he’s leaking Marvel mini-movies. I still think he’s a Disney plant – don’t see him leaking anybody else’s stuff, do we?

Here’s the first Agent Coulson short, The Consultant, in full. You’ll be able to get a better look at it on the Thor Blu-ray, but this will do for online ease. It’s essentially an advert in the guise of a mini-movie.

Okay, so there was a little bit of expensive stuff from a Marvel movie past and a lot of talk-is-cheap that was filmed especially. It’s like a sketch from a comedy show, and not even a particularly good one. What fun there is to be had comes from the continuity weaving, I suppose, and the implications that everybody in The Avengers is really hard and smashes things up good.

Yawn.

The next short film in this series, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer is expected to be on the Captain America disc. I hope it’s a better use of everybody’s time – mine, yours, Clark Gregg’s, everybody’s.

Footnote: Mr. Volkov has also uploaded some other, Avengers-hyping material from the Thor package.
