Aceshowbiz has a detailed account of The Avengers footage screened at NYCC 2011, which follows a meeting between Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).

"Set in India, where Banner (Mark Ruffalo) has been hiding for the last two years, (we see) Banner's encounter with Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), who is sent by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to get him back into the action.

"For a man trying to avoid stress, you picked a hell of a place to hide," she tells Banner. "We never lost you." 

Though he trusts Fury, Banner doesn't quickly take the offer. "What if I say 'no'? What if the other guy says no?" he asks, referring to the Hulk.

In her response, Romanoff tries to convince him by saying, "You've been two years without an incident, I don't think you want to break that streak." 

Romanoff then explains that S.H.I.E.L.D. needs Banner because he is an expert in gamma radiation. The organization thinks that he can fix the gamma signal that is used to track the Tesseract, which has the potential to "wipe out the planet."

But, Banner thinks that Fury wants him to be locked "in a cage", and starts to lose his temper. Feeling threatened, Romanoff pulls a gun on Banner, leading him to apologize, "I'm sorry that's mean," and ask her to put the gun down. It is then revealed that Romanoff actually has plenty of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents surrounding Banner's place as she sends a command for them to stand down through her communicator."
