We Cut to Maria Hill for a Reason

Minute Fifty Three: From A Very Desperate Fury to Loki Dragging Things Out

Joining us on the show, we have Declan Craggs from Scream Movie Minute.

In the fifty-third minute of The Avengers

We start where we left off last minute – a key trailer shot of the Avengers at the conference table looking very pensive. What’s Thor thinking about? Why don’t any of them ask why it was so easy to catch Loki or why he didn’t try to escape earlier? The conversation between Loki and Fury is great. Fury’s quick end does make us wonder about that cut to Agent Hill. It sure feels like this was a legacy cut from the original edit when Hill was angry at Fury for getting them into this situation. Now, it just feels weirdly placed, particularly as it’s a line directed at Tony, who’s not even listening. Regardless, this all makes for an interesting conversation. Tune in!
