Marvel To Make Us Fall In Love With A New SHIELD Agent, Only To Be Eaten By A Deer

Or some damned, thing, I'm sure.

Marvel is filming a new short film, Item 47, to be added to the Avengers DVD, making it the third after the wonderful Consultant and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor's Hammer. Now, of course, both of those featured Agent Coulson, but that's not going to happen now, so we move on. Move on, dammit, but why won't it stop hurting inside?

The new film will star Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford as a couple who find one of the alien guns after the events of the Avengers, and wacky hijinks ensue. Now, I'm a fan of Caplan, and this announcement is actually kind of disappointing, because it means she won't be playing any other roles in future MCU films, unless this character is a forerunner to something bigger.

But what I'm focused on is who else is in the film. Maximiliano Hernández, who has been playing a SHIELD agent all along, will appear with Titus Welliver, or the Smoke Monster from LOST. Welliver is very good at playing the straight man, but he can also be very, very funny. Could he be the new SHIELD agent to capture our hearts, to make our eyes swoon, to make the inside-hurt stop?

We'll have to wait until the fall to see.
