Marvel has decided to go into making short films. Both of the shorts have followed the misadventures of SHIELD agent Coulson, once again played by Clark Gregg, who is reprising his roles seen in ‘Iron Man’, and ‘Iron Man 2? as well as next years ‘Thor 2?,‘The Avengers’. So far the shorts have been short, and funny and help show what happens between the breaks in the different movies. The newest short, ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer’, takes place between Agent Coulson leaving Tony Stark in ‘Iron Man 2? and arriving in New Mexico and finding Thor’s hammer in ‘Thor’. It really is a brilliant piece of marketing. Hit the jump to check out the newest short.
I really like what Marvel does with it's shorts. The shorts make me want more story and make me want to go see more Marvel movies. This could be a great way to introduce some of their characters on audiences before doing full movies with them. What do you guys think, do you like that Marvel is doing small short films? Are there any characters that you want to see in Marvel's new short series?
