During the recent San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios teased those of us unable to make the trek to San Diego for its Hall H presentation with nine whole seconds of the new live-action short film Marvel One-Shot: Item 47 that will be included as an extra on The Avengers DVD/Blu-ray when it is released in September. The movie takes place in the post-Chitauri invasion Marvel Cinematic Universe and the teaser clip showed S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández ) being dispatched to retrieve a stray Chitauri weapon and "neutralize the two outlaws" who found it. Now, an extended preview clip has been released that shows us that the "two outlaws" are really not such bad people, just a pair of "hapless young troublemakers" (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) who think that the Chitauri weapon was delivered to them by fate to help improve their lives, i.e., use it to get rich robbing banks.
Item 47 was directed by Marvel Studios co-President Louis D’Esposito. The screenplay was written by Eric Pearson, writer of the Marvel One-Shot shorts A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer and The Consultant.
