    Dunno if anyone's picked up on this or not, but Marvel's already got the next One-Shot out, starring Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford as "Claire and Benny," an ordinary couple who steal "Item 47," a Chitauri gun, from SHIELD and try to use it to rob banks:


    http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/07/03/first-look-item-47/


    SHIELD Agent Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernandez, from Avengers and the Coulson One-Shots) returns, and he is joined by another yet-to-be-named agent played by Titus Welliver.



    When I heard "down on their luck couple," my first thought was Hank and Janet, but that's not "Claire and Benny." Good luck identifying these guys....assuming they're drawn from comic lore, anyway (other than Jasper Sitwell, of course). I'm kinda thinking Claire Temple, who was the wife of Bill (Goliath) Foster, and the "Foster Theory" has already been alluded to in the Avengers....


    ....anyway, there it is. ;)

    The Foster theory actually has nothing to do with Bill but with Jane Foster.

    I'm curious about that short. I hope it finds its way on youtube bwfore the BR release...

    Probably so they could trial a new director or talent and see how we respond.

    It's a good idea and I'm intrigued. I wonder if Joss had any influence on it?

    A short (and by short, I mean short) clip from the next one-shot has surfaced!

    This looks really cool. I'm glad they are taking the one shot idea and running with it. Now the MCU Phase One approximate film timeline looks like:

    Captain America: The First Avenger
    Iron Man
    Iron Man 2
    MOS: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer
    Thor
    The Incredible Hulk (with alternate opening: which is now canon via Avengers)
    MOS: The Consultant
    Marvel's The Avengers
    MOS: Item 47

    I consider Item 47 part of phase 2. It's post Avengers and a consequence of it.

    I'd abbreviate it "M1S" instead of "MOS." MOS is Man of Steel. :yay:

    It's in the MCU Phase One box set and it's on The Avengers Blu-Ray so it's Phase One.

    Though technically he is correct, with it being post-Avengers it should be in all technicalities a phase two piece of footage. Looks neat too.

    Yes, exactly, but what I really liked is that I think we are supposed to acknowledge the similarities between Sitwell and Coulson and that Coulson was his mentor.

    It also establishes that when Clint "made a different call", it seems to be something that Coulson instilled in those around him.

    He's still around in spirit if not physically there. I really loved the short.

    Can we say Sitwell or other agents we saw are gonna take place of Coulson in Phase II? Maybe Item 47 introduced the character?

    Also I don't like Sitwell to be honest.

    I feel like Maria Hill will be taking over for Coulson in Phase II and beyond. Cobie Smulders signed on to appear in multiple films (I think it was 7).

    I noticed that last week, they went through several iterations of rifles then upgraded it to sort of cannon or artillery pieces. The Cap thread has some pics of some SWAT looking guys with a big cannon of sorts but I haven't compared them.
