The Hero Walk

Minute Ninety Eight: From Steve Entering the Sick Bay to Hill Revealing the Actual Location of Coulson’s Cards

Playwright Dean O’Carroll joins us in this episode!

In the ninety-eighth minute of The Avengers

Steve finds Natasha in the sick bay and seems to have forgotten that she flew him to Stuttgart and back in a quinjet as he asks her if she knows how to fly one. Okay, so the line is really only there to get Clint in the room where he and Steve meet, but it’s an awkward line. But Clint is better and seems to be ready for action! That means it’s been over an hour and a half before we actually get to have Hawkeye be a hero in the film. Phew.

That leads us to our let’s-kick-off-act-three-with-a-heroes-getting-ready-montage montage! Thor’s in the field in New Jersey (actually Ohio) whipping up a storm and calling the lightning. Tony fixes his mask and dons it. Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Captain America all grab their weapons and head to a quinjet. It’s exciting stuff! We get to chat a bit about Black Widow’s Bite as we see Natasha test it. We also get to ponder Steve ever calling anyone ‘son’ and why it doesn’t quite work for us. We also ponder how Thor actually figures out where he’s going.

As the minute draws to a close, we see Maria Hill join Nick Fury in the bridge. Fury’s looking at the bloody trading cards, and Hill reveals that she knows they’d been in Phil’s locker, not his pocket. We’re setting up Fury’s response. Should be a good one. Tune in!
