Last week, Marvel Studios unveiled the full details for Marvel's The Avengers' Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD release on September 25. One of the bonus features included is the short film Marvel One-Shot: Item 47. Today we have the first photo from this short, featuring star Lizzy Caplan, along with new plot details. Take a look at the photo and read on to learn more about the story.
The actress will play Claire alongside Jesse Bradford, who plays her boyfriend Benny. The story centers on the couple who stumble upon one of the discarded alien guns from the final battle scene in Marvel's The Avengers. The title refers to the actual gun itself, which leads the downtrodden couple to make some, "incredibly bad decisions." Maximiliano Hernández (Thor) and Titus Welliver are playing S.H.I.E.L.D. agents sent in to clean up the mess left behind by Benny and Claire. Here's what Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito had to say about the short, which he directed himself.
"The world is topsy-turvy now. There's been an alien invasion, and things are crazy. 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."
