TA076: The Tiptoeing Version of Hulk

Minute Seventy Six: From Black Widow’s Trigger for the Hulk to Iron Man Arriving at the Scene of the Damaged Engine

Jason Dittmer, Professor of Political Geography at University College London and author of ‘Captain America and the Nationalist Superhero’, joins us in this episode!

In the seventy-sixth minute of The Avengers

Natasha breaks free from the pipe, which causes Hulk to turn and see her. The chase begins! We talk a bit about this pursuit, which takes place over the next few minutes. We see Loki smiling in his cell as he hears Hulk roar, which leads us to discuss the cage in the first place – why did they put Loki here instead of a different non-Hulk related cell? How do they get Hulk into it? It doesn’t make a lot of sense.

From there, we head to the bridge where Nick Fury works to get his crew moving the helicarrier out to sea to protect the people on land below them. That, of course, leads us to discussing the reasons a flying aircraft carrier would ever exist in the first place. We also get to meet Jesse Garcia, our Carrier Bridge Tech, who learns to navigate with the sun.

The minute ends with Steve heading out to the damaged engine where he meets up with Tony, now in his Iron Man suit. It’s a busy minute of action. Tune in!
