Minute Seventy Three: From Fury Readying His Sidearm to Fury Shaking His Head

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

In the seventy-third minute of The Avengers

It’s a tension-filled minute! We start with Fury reaching for his gun because, as it turns out, Bruce has picked up the scepter. But… why? Is the scepter behaving? Is Loki in control of it in some capacity? There are questions we ask that we’re not even sure the filmmakers at the time had answers to, which is frustrating. Still, knowing down the road it’s the mind stone makes it make more sense, right?

The gamma readings trigger the system and Bruce runs to check, but why is the latitude/longitude giving a reading somewhere over the wilds of Quebec? And why is the helicarrier’s reading showing that it’s over Bermuda? Are these Easter eggs for someone in the crew? Was it intentional? Or were they goofs? We may never know.

But now the helicarrier’s blowing up like an 80s TV scifi show. Explosions out of the floor. Shaky cams equating a ship under attack. People flying through windows. It plays fine, but certainly gives us plenty to question. Regardless, Barton’s on the attack and our team is separated. Tune in!
