Minute Thirty-Seven: From Erik Telling His Assistants Where They Can Put It to Coulson Telling Steve About His Vintage Set

Jay Shepard from and joins us in this episode!

In the thirty-seventh minute of The Avengers

Following our last minute’s extended scene, we already have another one. We’re in Loki’s underground lab and there is more between Erik Selvig and Clint Barton, between Erik Selvig and Loki, and between Clint Barton and Loki. It all feels awkward, though. While there are some interesting points brought up in this extended scene – like Barton talking about why he might not have killed Fury and more about Selvig’s connection to the Tesseract – it all plays awkwardly. We definitely prefer the version as it exists in the film, though this one is an interesting exploration of these characters. 

The scene plays a bit strangely anyway. They have an awful lot of people they’ve found in just a few days and seem to have accomplished an incredible amount of work on everything. Plus, we have the odd exit of the scene with a request for an eyeball. Just what is Clint up to? 

That, of course, brings us back to the bridge of the Helicarrier where we get a bit of the conversation about trading cards between Steve and Phil. It’s pretty cute. All in all, there’s certainly no shortage of content to discuss in this minute! Tune in!
