Watch Marvel Short Film ‘The Consultant,’ Linking ‘The Incredible Hulk’ to ‘The Avengers’

At Comic Con Marvel debuted footage of the studio’s first short film, The Consultant, in which Clark Gregg as SHIELD Agent Coulson and Maximiliano Hern├índez as Agent Sitwell meet to talk about the fact that bigwigs want Emil Blonsky, aka The Abomination, to be a part of the Avengers.

As quickie shorts go, this is a relatively good way to use some existing footage and some very affordable new stuff to bridge other Marvel features. In this case, The Consultant bridges The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers and Iron Man 2. The short also appears on the upcoming Thor DVD.

We’ll see another one in the near future called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer, in which Coulson will help illuminate some of the stuff that takes place between Iron Man 2 and Thor.

Pollution Win: Glass Beach, A Treasure Of A Beach Created From Trash

For 18 years, from 1949 to 1967, residents of the Fort Bragg area in Mendocino County used the ocean as their dump, throwing their garbage, even automobiles over the cliffs towering what is now known as Glass Beach but was then called The Dumps. In 1967, the North Coast Water Quality Board and city officials shutdown the area and it wasn’t until 2002 that it was completely cleaned of waste and reopened as a state park. Years of pounding surf created the beautiful and colorful beach of glass that is there today. Collecting the polished glass is not allowed, as it is part of California’s MacKerricher State Park and meant to be enjoyed for generations of future visitors.
