Marvel has posted a clip online from the short film The Consultant, which features S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg).
The clip was first shown to Comic-Con fans who attended Marvel's Cup O’ Joe panel and the short will appear in full on the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray release of Thor.
Gregg will also appear as Coulson in another short titled A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor’s Hammer... - although it's not yet known when and where that will appear.
Both shorts are self-contained stories following the daily life of a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
“I got a call from a rising young executive over at Marvel named Kevin Feige to talk about the Avengers,” joked Gregg, who plays Coulson in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers.
“In that conversation he said they had this crazy idea. They want to do some shorts about a couple of different days in the life of Agent Coulson. Some connective tissue between the movies."
Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant takes place sometime after the plots of Iron Man 2,Thor, and The Incredible Hulk, but before The Avengers.
