Hiatus Time

We’re looking at Marvel One-Shot The Consultant.

It’s the second of these we’ve looked at. How are they working?

In this one, Agent Coulson joins Agent Sitwell in a diner to talk about their orders to stop the World Security Council from adding the Abomination to the Avengers Initiative. How are they going to do that, you may wonder? Well, tune in to the end of The Incredible Hulk because we see how. It’s Tony Stark talking to General Ross. Does this work rewriting that scene into a new context? And does the cheap budget affect the overall feel of this? It’s a fun piece, albeit not all that necessary. Still, it’s fun to see Marvel starting those retcon wheels a-spinning. This was released on the Blu-ray of The Incredible Hulk but these days, you can watch it along with all the Marvel One-Shots over on Disney+. How fancy is that! So check it out then tune in. This is a member bonus episode. If you’d like to tune in, please consider becoming a member. Join the conversation with movie lovers from around the world on The Next Reel’s Discord channel!
