We Needed the Special Arrows

Minute Seventy Two: From Clint Drawing His Bow to Bruce Asking If They Want to Know His Secret to Staying Calm

Kyle Olson from Marvel Movie Minute seasons 2 and 3 joins us in this episode!

In the seventy-second minute of The Avengers

This minute clearly shows that the scepter is somehow influencing the group as we see several of them shaking their heads as if in a fog. But why is this the direction they chose to take? Does it make sense? Is it masterful storytelling or just confusing? We get a break in the tension as Bruce reveals an attempted suicide, which surprisingly is a moment that essentially canonizes a deleted scene from The Incredible Hulk. It’s a great moment, and allows the argument to stop, even if it’s Bruce who now uses it as a chance to start getting angry. Meanwhile, Clint shoots an arrow at the helicarrier. But it’s a cute arrow! Tune in!
