The Rubble Mission

Minute Sixteen: From Strike Team Delta’s Abidjan Operation to a Sick Man in Bed

Joining us today is Phillip Mottaz, author of the Psychic Barber Mystery series.

In the sixteenth minute of The Avengers

Natasha finds out Barton’s not really in danger. Does that change our sense of Coulson’s call and how he pitched it to her? Regardless, her reaction when she realizes she has to get the ‘big guy’ is great. This film really is the only time Hulk felt dangerous, and we like that. And speaking of, we head to Kolkata to find a young girl running through the streets. It’s a great location setup, but why is she so worried? Isn’t she just a wee actress hired by Natasha? She does bring us to Bruce Banner, and we get to chat about Mark Ruffalo taking over the part. There’s a nice sense of the Bill Bixby character to him here as he’s helping sick people. We love finally getting to talk about him in this franchise! Tune in!
