Annoying S.H.I.E.L.D agent from those Marvel movies gets OWN movie

After playing second fiddle to Nick Fury, Tony Stark and Thor, Phil Coulson is finally getting his just deserts. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent stars in a new short film aptly titled Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant.

The first clip from The Consultant features footage that fills in the gap of time between Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk. [Spoilers ahead] Do you remember when Tony Stark made a surprise visit to General Ross? Were you wondering why they sent Stark instead of somebody—anybody—else? Here's your answer.

The Consultant fun doesn't stop here—there's more to come. Marvel also has a soon-to-be-released short called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer. In it, Coulson and a few supporting characters will bridge the gap between the action in Iron Man 2 and Thor.

Agent Coulson might not have the prestige and honor of Nick Fury, but at least he gets a mini-movie highlighting his cool, behind-the-scenes antics.

Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant will appear on the DVD, Blu-ray and 3-D Blu-ray of Thor, which hits shelves on Sept. 13.
