Minute Twenty-Five: From More Me to a Tap on the Chest

James Anderson and Colin Parker from the Timeline Scavengers podcast join us in this episode!

In the twenty-fifth minute of The Avengers

We have a lot of love for the location shots in midtown Manhattan where we see Grand Central Station and the area around the MetLife building. You can even see cranes, showing that Tony’s still working on redoing this building. The building’s design is very cool and there are some wonderfully detailed shots that only last a few seconds, but they do a great job of laying out this building, which later filmmakers likely weren’t even aware they’d be using as much as they did.

We have a great conversation about Tony and his personality, as well as his working and romantic relationship with Pepper. This scene plays it so well and we’re here for it. We also get some of Jarvis, and a hint of what’s to come with Agent Coulson. 

Don’t worry – we also talk plenty about Tony’s suit removal unit, which seems to have been nicknamed the car wash by everyone who worked on it. And yes, we even talk about The Mentalist. Tune in!
