Marvel Studios Moving Forward With Short Films? Agent Coulson To Star In First Two?

Posted on 30 June 2011 by Christian

The rumor of Marvel Studios getting into the business of releasing short films for lesser known characters, a la Pixar, has resurfaced now seeming more plausible! Check it out!

Over a year ago, a huge rumor surfaced suggesting that Marvel Studios was “meeting with writers and directors to work on small scale films based on some of their unknown characters.” While the studios’ president debunked the rumor, he did however reveal his interest in the idea. And now the rumor has resurfaced, via Film School Rejects, not only suggesting the studio has made it more than just an “idea,” but they’ve already filmed two. Read the source’s report below verbatim.

Marvel Studios may be getting into the short film business to help boost their already bustling feature film trade. According to a source close to Marvel Studios, the company is setting some of their staff writers to developing smaller characters in the Marvel universe for future projects. These projects, only proposed as short films at this point, could lead to certain ancillary characters making appearances in future features or even becoming popular enough to headline their own film. hat is certain, though, is that two shorts have already been shot, both featuring actor Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson. These are to be included as special features on the Thor & Captain America DVDs & Blu-Rays that will release later in the year.

Now what may make this plausible; details for THOR‘s Blu-ray release were revealed today, with two mysterious features titled Marvel Studios – The Avengers (Bonus Featurette) and Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant: . Anyhow, the site further states that how well these short films are received, depends on the studios’ decision to move forward with other characters.

Anyhow, if true, THOR hit shelves on DVD/ Blu-ray on September 19th. Also, could the mysterious Isaiah Mustafa-starrer Luke Cage teaser, which it’s creators ordered to be removed, be another one of these shorts? What do you think?
