Minute One Hundred Nine: From Fish in a Barrel to More Fish in a Barrel

Ryanne Bennett from Black Girl Nerds joins us in this episode!

In the one-hundred-ninth minute of The Avengers

Is Chris Evans putting on his best Batman voice with his line here? It sure seems that way. This minute gives us a chance to celebrate the power of the non-supers as we really get to see Natasha and Clint doing their best to stop as many Chitauri as they can. We get a bit confused about bus placement, but eventually we figure it out. It doesn’t really answer our questions as to why Clint starts by taking people out the bus window before prying the door open. Judging by the fire blast on the bus door, we think there may have been some deleted material in here that was excised. Clint also gets to use his arrows, and we get to talk about the fancy quiver he has paired with his bow and the many arrow heads – specifically the burst shot here. Nat shoots a Chitauri in the face, and behind it we see how limber these Chitauri are. All through this, we also get great video game running and jumping beats from Steve. He sure seems super after this minute. Tune in!
