A series of short films which are available as bonus features on certain Blu-rays of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (But since I don't currently have a Blu-ray player, I haven't been able to see all of them.)

The Consultant (3:54)
Disney+; IMDb; MCU Wiki; TV Tropes

This was released on the Blu-ray of Thor in 2011. It's also available as an extra for "Thor" on Disney+ (which is where I first watched it, in 2020).

Agent Jasper Sitwell sits in a diner, where he is soon joined by Agent Phil Coulson. They discuss the order of the World Security Council to get SHIELD to convince General Ross (from The Incredible Hulk) to release Emil Blonsky (aka "The Abomination") so that he might join The Avengers. But SHIELD doesn't want Blonsky, they want Bruce Banner. So they have to come up with a way to follow the WSC's order with regard to Ross, but to fail to convince him. So they decide to send someone called "The Consultant" to talk to Ross. And that's all I want to say. It's a fairly amusing and well-executed short film.

Agent Carter (15:28)
Disney+; IMDb; MCU Wiki; TV Tropes; Vudu; Wikipedia

This was released on the Blu-ray of Iron Man 3 in 2013. It's also available as an extra for "Iron Man 3" on Disney+ (where I saw it in 2020) and Vudu.

The film takes place one year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) works for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), under the command of Agent John Flynn (Bradley Whitford), who treats her like a secretary. One night while all the male agents are gone, a call comes in with a mission, which Carter decides to tackle on her own. Of course she kicks a lot of ass and gets the job done. And of course the next day Flynn is angry about this. But then... Agent Carter gets her due. I don't want to reveal more than that, except to say that this short led to the creation of the TV series Agent Carter. (However, I don't really see how this short can fit into the timeline of the series, or vice versa.) Anyway... I guess I should also mention that there's an amusing mid-credits scene with Howard Stark and "Dum Dum" Dugan.


All Hail the King
IMDb; MCU Wiki; TV Tropes; Wikipedia
