What is ITEM 47?
What is that you say? What is ITEM 47?
ITEM 47 is a one-shot included on The Avengers Bluray release. Basically, its a 10 minute itty bitty mini movie on the disc. ITEM 47 was unveiled at San Diego Comic Con over the summer and basically follows the story of two character, Benny and Claire, as they have an adventure with an alien artifact that they found after the Avengers put the smack down on Loki and his Alien horde. I was under the impression that this thing was common knowledge, but talked to multiple people today who looked at me like I had two heads when I brought it up. So, put your disc in the player and look for it under extras. It’s only 10 minutes, but man is it fun to watch. Its also cool because it gives you a glimpse of the Cinematic Marvel U but without the superheroes. ABC announced last week that they are going to create a show based on SHIELD with Joss Whedon at the helm and you gotta wonder if ITEM 47 was the first test of this new kind of Marvel product? If the new SHIELD show anything like ITEM 47, then you can count on me to set my DVR to record.
