"What should I tell the police?"
"Tell them those Tae-bo tapes really paid off."
―Cashier and Phil Coulson

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer is the second in a series of Marvel One-Shots, released on the Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray on October 25, 2011. It takes place during the events of The Incredible Hulk and in between the events of Iron Man 2 and Thor.

The short film was written by Eric Pearson.


Phil Coulson stops a gas station robbery on his way to New Mexico.


Agent Coulson

Phil Coulson leaves Tony Stark's mansion in Malibu to investigate a situation in New Mexico. Coulson stops at a Roxxon Gas Station to fill up his car and, as he tries to decide between which donuts to buy, two armed robbers enter the shop and hold the night clerk at gun point telling her to empty the cash register.

A Funny Thing 6

Coulson reveals himself to the criminals and feigns stupidity, offering to surrender his pistol. However, he tricks them into allowing him to slide it over through the next aisle, and while they are distracted, the agent takes them both down. Coulson then casually pays for his donuts and leaves the night clerk staring in awe and recommends that she inform the police that she was the one who subdued the thieves (this is meant to be a subtle way of advising her not to mention his involvement).
