Hulk Eats Babies

Minute Eighteen: From Young Spy to Global Catastrophe

Joining us today, we have Ryan Dalton, author of the Time Shift trilogy and This Last Adventure.

In the eighteenth minute of The Avengers

The small bit at the start of this minute about Natasha starting so young is great script economy – we get just a line but it says so much. How does Bruce know what SHIELD is though? It never came up in The Incredible Hulk. And why does Nick Fury ‘trust him’? What has he done that warrants that trust? We deduce that there are likely a lot of small reasons Natasha says that. We talk about the nature of Hulk and how much say he really has in decisions like this that Bruce makes. And we talk about the small touch of Bruce rocking the baby swing. Too on the nose? Maybe, but we still like it. We look at the timeline that got Bruce from Harlem to here as well. Tune in!
