Maybe you’ve heard of Item 47, but do you know what it is? Neither did we, until now. Marvel gives us a little more information about the short film which is the latest in their series of “One-Shots.”
When The Avengers come out on Blu-ray on September 25th, the bonus feature will show a couple played by Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford. The two find an alien gun and then go on a journey of poor decisions and bad ideas. The title is what the gun is actually referred to as and S.H.I.E.L.D. will be moving in to retrieve their lost gun and sort out the aftermath of the events that take place in The Avengers.
Marvel will be screening the short at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con. In the past they’ve had One-Shots as specials on the Blu-rays for Thor and Captain America. Those shorts were around 4 minutes long each, but the new one has a run time of 12 minutes. The studio is also planning on making companion pieces for the sequels Iron Man 3, Thor 2, and Captain America 2.
The short will follow the two, named Benny and Claire, as they are tracked down by two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents played by Maximiliano Hernandez and Titus Welliver. Marvel was looking to make a short that doesn’t feature superheroes but still, takes place during the events that happen in The Avengers. “Anything that expands the world and shows you the more human elements of it, that just makes the world more colorful and fun for the average viewer.”
Here’s the first clip of the scavenger hunt that will lead players to the screening at Comic-con.
