Check out your first clip from “Item 47”, the one-shot short film that will be available in its entirety as a bonus feature on “The Avengers” DVD/Blu-ray when it hits your local store shelves or online e-tailer of your choice later this year September 25, 2012.
The short stars Jesse Bradford and Lizzy Caplan as two young lovers who “recover one of the lost alien weapons and figure out how to make it work”. Being that they’re young New Yorkers, the couple, of course, decide to use the weapon for personal financial gain. Titus Welliver and Maximiliano Hernández co-star as SHIELD agents sent to retrieve the lost “Item 47”. You would think Agent Coulson would be the man for this job, but, uh, I guess he wasn’t available in the aftermath of “The Avengers”.
“Item 47” is directed by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito. I guess what he really wanted to do was direct and not, you know, run a major movie studio after all. Go figure.
