In the run up to The Avengers, Marvel released a couple of ‘One-Shot’ short films, which helped bring the superhero threads together in preparation for the big mash-up. Now they’ve made another slightly longer short, which follows on from The Avengers and seems like it could be part of a plan to build towards a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘S.H.I.E.L.D. recovered all but one… a Chitauri weapon, aka “ITEM 47.” After a young couple, Benny (Jesse Bradford) and Claire (Lizzy Caplan), stumble into finding the elusive weapon, they embark on a bank robbing spree. With S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (LOST’s Titus Welliver and AVENGERS’s Maximiliano Hernandez) hot on their trail, it’s only a matter of time before the couple have to pay for their crimes.’
Item 47 is available on Marvel Avengers Assemble Blu-ray, out 17th September in the UK. Watch a clip from the film below the poster.
