Marvel One Shots

I have been going through old posts a lot recently and one brought back the memories of these films and I have now realized many have not seen them yet so I feel now is as good a time as any to bring these forgotten gems back into the light.

A funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor’s Hammer

In this short we see what happens between Iron Man 2 and Thor when everyone’s favorite Shield Agent is on his way to see what is going on in New Mexico. It is a nice glimpse into the world of Agent Coulson and gives us a sneak peak of the awesomeness that was yet to come. If you want to own this short then all you need to do is buy a copy of Captain America: The First Avenger and it’s yours.

The Consultant

This one was a little trickier to track down but is worth the watch anyway. In the film we find out just why Tony Stark was seen at the end of the Hulk speaking with General Ross. It is revealed that Stark was sent there to antagonize the General and keep him from bringing his talents to the Avengers initiative. This does help lend credence to why General Ross is later working with the Avengers in both Civil War and Infinity War. The consultant is an extra on certain copies of Thor.

Item 47

This next one features the talents of Jesse Bradford and Lizzy Caplan who are a pair of very lucky bank thieves that come across some alien tech discarded after the Battle for New York. They are soon tracked down and recruited by Agent Sitwell to help him understand more about the weapons, possibly for use with Hydra. If you are looking for Item 47 then check out an Avengers DVD.

All Hail The King

This one is arguably the most important as it finally revealed the existence of the real Mandarin and helps flesh out some of the Marvel lore. Not only that but there is an excellent cameo right at the end by Sam Rockwell. If you want to see this film then get a copy of Thor The Dark World.

Agent Carter

The final one we can talk about is the Agent Carter short. Honestly this one is my hands down favorite and I am a little sad that I cannot find it only anywhere to show you guys, but in reality your better just watching the Agent Carter series, which has now made the film non canon. To this day I still think Marvel where mad to cancel Agent Carter, such a waste of a great show. If you are really desperate to see this one the check out the Iron Man 3 DVD.
