Still waiting for that Luke Cage movie? Well you might be getting a taste earlier than expected — in short movie form. Because Marvel is getting into the short film business!


According to Film School Rejects, two of these rumored shorts have already been shot, and they both star S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson. One will be included on the Thor DVD, and the other on the Captain America DVD.

No word on which fan-favorite B-list and C-list heroes might show up, like Luke Cage or Dr. Strange, but most folks are speculating that random characters will be popping up in these shorts with Coulson. But until the DVDs are actually released, it's all just guesses at this point! Which Marvel character would you most like to see in a short film with Coulson?


Taskmaster - Ability easily translated to film.

Jennifer Walters - Lawyers work in any story, easy reference for fans since She-Hulk doesn't translate well to film without an Avatar-like budget.

New Warriors - Speedball, Nova, Night Thrasher, Microbe, etc. can play the reality TV angle in a short pretty easily.
