Hot on the heels of Marvel's first live-action short, The Consultant (which was included within the special features of the recent Thor DVD/Blu-ray), comes their next Agent Coulson-related short film meant to bridge the gap between Iron Man 2 and Thor. This short, called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer, picks up after Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) leaves Tony Stark's pad to head out to the New Mexico desert after receiving a call about Thor's hammer crash-landing there. While on his way to the site, Coulson stops to get gas and winds up being right smack in the middle of a robbery.
The entire short will be featured on the Captain America: The First Avenger DVD/Blu-ray, but you can watch a preview of it down below, courtesy of the short's cinematographer David Myrick.
