A Reason to Avenge

Minute Ninety: From An Unconscious Clint Being Dragged Away to Fury Starting to Come Clean About Phase 2.

Lachlan Thiele from the Quiet on Set podcast joins us in this episode!

In the ninetieth minute of The Avengers

Aside from Clint getting dragged away to the infirmary, this minute is the start of Fury’s pitch to Tony and Steve for the Avengers Initiative. But why isn’t Natasha here? Is it designed strictly as a pitch to the two team leaders who aren’t quite bought in yet? It just hits us as odd that Natasha’s not here. As for Maria, she’s here but relegated to lingering in the background. It’s unfortunate. But Fury makes a great pitch and even tosses Coulson’s bloody cards onto the table. As for his methodologies to get them bloody? We’re not so sure we want to know. But would they increase in value now?

The pitch with the trading cards seems very deliberately targeted at Steve. Why is it Fury’s comment about losing his one good eye that seems to perk Tony up? It’s a great start to a heavy moment at the bottom of act two, and it makes for a great conversation. Tune in!
