Watch: The Consultant, A SHIELD Short Film From Marvel

Posted by August 31, 2011 Comment

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.
