Agent Coulson helps with team-building in the Marvel One-Shot "The Consultant"

Sep. 1, 2011by: Dave Davis

Although the Marvel movies have gone above and beyond in their attempt to build a self-contained "universe" on the run-up to THE AVENGERS, nonchalant S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson wants to help even further.

In the short film "The Consultant", the Marvel "One-Shot" on the THOR Blu-Ray, Coulson provides some insight as to how THE INCREDIBLE HULK (the movie and the green guy himself) fit in the timeline before the superheroes assemble next summer.

The next Coulson One-Shot, expected to come with the CAPTAIN AMERICA home release, is titled "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer…" and finds the field operative filling some moments between IRON MAN 2 and THOR.

That was fucking brilliant.. I always wondered how they were gonna tie in that final end-credits scene from The Incredible Hulk. Marvel is handling this entire thing wonderfully.. it's like one big epic web of connectivity and continuity. I love it!

The only flaw with that connectivity and continuity is that MCU's 1st Banner and Rhodes have been replaced. Other than that hiccup, yeah connective. Also I recommend watching just the end credit sequences together, they also oddly interconnect as well.

Coulson has godlike powers. He's just incredibly modest. Nick Fury doesn't know anything about it.

What's the point? I find it insulting they feel the need to explain every fucking thing to me. I'm not an idiot. I feel as if they are doing these "one shots" (dumb name, just call it a short like everyone else does, or... ummm a deleted scene, which it pretty much is) because they are trying to fill gaps that if they wanted them filled, they shoulda taken care of it originally.

And the writing here was atrocious. Talk about "on the nose" dialogue. I'll stick to the movies, thank you very

Don't forget lots of people are not overly aware that those movies are linked, or didn't see all the movies or didn't see the post-credits scenes.
And "One Shot" is a comics reference: it's a single comics, set in regular continuity, but with a self contained story... And those "shorts" fit the description !
Moviegoers and movie fans don't make the success of a movie, the average viewer do therefore the studios adapt their com to THEM rather than US !

100% agreed.
And I would add, poorly edited.

This is a very cool idea -- a no-budget short with some very minor Marvel characters, giving some background and context for larger events. It's well-written and acted for what it is. I wouldn't mind seeing more of these.

A smart, funny, charming way to retcon the fact that apparently Will Hurt's Thunderbolt Ross will have nothing to do with The Avengers movie.

Teases.

I Stick Around After The Credits

I'm the kind of guy who sticks around after the credits of Marvel movies and who laughs at the little meta jokes thrown in to scenes. I'm not sure if there is any 'need' to have these one-shots, and they may not be necessary to fully enjoy "The Avengers" but damn if I didn't enjoy the hell out of this. For years people have said, myself included at times, that you can't pull off an ensemble super hero piece comprised of characters each with their own independent films and storylines. Marvel

For years people have said, myself included at times, that you can't pull off an ensemble super hero piece comprised of characters each with their own independent films and storylines. Marvel isn't just showing us that it's possible, they're showing us that when done correctly it can be handled with flare, panache' and sheer awesomeness. I think that the powers that be understood the concerns and faults with "Iron-Man 2" and corrected them perfectly. While watching "Thor" and "Capt. America" this Summer I felt throughout each that I was getting parts of a giant collective narrative without taking away from the independent stories. It can't be overstated how excited I am for "The Avengers."
