The Consultant is one of the direct-to-home short films released by Marvel Studios as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was released on the Thor Blu-ray on September 13, 2011.


When the World Security Council orders the S.H.I.E.L.D. to ask General Thunderbolt Ross to free Emil Blonsky from prison to incorporate him in the Avengers Initiative, Agents Coulson and Sitwell decide to sabotage the meeting. The World Security Council blames Bruce Banner for the fight in New York City and see Blonsky as the hero instead. Sitwell suggests Coulson to send Tony Stark as the consultant to the meeting and Coulson reluctantly agrees. Stark approaches a weary and disgraced Ross in a bar and ends up annoying Ross so much that Ross tries to have him removed from the bar. Stark then buys the bar, and schedules it for demolition. The next morning at the restaurant, Sitwell arrives to Coulson who informs him that their plan worked, and that Blonsky would remain in prison.
