Who is Marvel's "Consultant"?

08.04.11 6 years ago 5 Comments

Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson to you, true believers) is a lucky, lucky guy. Starting with a small part in “Iron Man”, he’s grown steadily in prominence until he was a major player in “Thor”. And now, apparently, he’s getting his own short film, to be tagged onto the “Thor” Blu-Ray: “The Consultant”.

The clip is interesting for two reasons: one, it’s funny as all hell (seriously, it’s a hoot, largely because it’s shot and scored like an espionage thriller), and two, they’re pretty obviously talking about General Ross and definitely talking about the Abomination. So, if you were wondering what they were going to do with that particular plot thread, now you know. As for who the Consultant is…somebody who works with SHIELD, would annoy the crap out of Thunderbolt Ross, and is an arrogant, preening jackass? Either it’s Iron Man or they heavily rewrote Leonard Samson.

Although the nerd in me would be remiss if I didn’t point out whoever transferred this screwed up the volume big time. Yeah, bring the dialogue down in the mix, it’s not important or anything. Turn up your speakers and check out the clip below:
