Marvel Will Feature The Short Film ‘Item 47′ on Avengers BluRay

Item 47Marvel has announced that the short film, ‘Item 47,’ will appear on The Avengers BluRay and DVD hitting stores September 25th. Gosh, Marvel is so ahead of the curve on these things. This is a great move by the film giant that is starting to rival Pixar as the most anticipated title card in the world.


Up until now details have been non-existent but thanks to EW, we now have the scoop on whats going to happen in this short film:

Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford star as a down-on-their-luck couple who find one of the discarded alien guns from the finale to The Avengers — and proceed to make some incredibly bad decisions.

This is the longest, most elaborate of the Marvel shorts so far, and could be a first step toward using short-subject films to dive deeper into the Marvel universe and introduce beloved but less-familiar superheroes to the mainstream.
Item 47 refers to the gun itself, which S.H.I.E.L.D. would like very much to retrieve from the hapless young troublemakers. “The world is topsy-turvy now. There’s been an alien invasion, and things are crazy,” explains Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, who directed the film himself. “So when this gun ­literally fell into their lap, this is a sign: We’re going to rob a few banks, we’re going to buy a boat, we’re going to the Caribbean, and all our problems will be solved.”
Two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (Maximiliano Hernández, returning from Thor and The Avengers, and Lost’s Man in Black Titus Welliver, making his Marvel debut) are given the job of cleaning up the mess and stopping this modern Bonnie and Clyde (not coincidentally named Benny and Claire.)
What else can I say really. This is great and defiantly motivates one to go out on the first day or even pre-order the dvd BluRay combo on September 25th. If you were planing on purchasing it anyway, and most film fans are, this just makes you want even more.
