The second in Marvel Studio’s series of short films, “Marvel One-Shots” has hit the internet. The films, designed to fill in the plot gaps between Marvel’s origins movies and their upcoming culmination in The Avengers, feature S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson as he travels across the country between superheroes. Check out the trailer for “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to Thor’s Hammer” here..
The One-Shots have given Agent Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, a chance at the limelight and this one shows that when the moment calls, he can be a badass. In the previous installment (viewable here)
Robert Downey Jr. steals the show, but with this bit of action and more One-Shots planned, expect to see Agent Coulson playing an expanded, and hopefully more violent, role in the upcoming Avengers flick.
