Minute One Hundred Thirteen: From Bringing Down the Leviathan to Cap’s Plan for Thor

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

In the one-hundred-thirteenth minute of The Avengers

It’s a big one! We’ve got the death of the leviathan but really, we’re here for the hero moment with the camera revolving around all six of our heroes, now finally THE AVENGERS. It’s a great moment.

Before we get there, we do talk a bit more about the demise of the leviathan and debate if its death should include more goo and grossness all over the streets. We also draw some comarisons to the graboids in Tremors that go nowhere because James has never seen it. There’s talk about the nature of viscera on the lens, not to mention potentially steamy leviathan breath fogging the lens as it crashes off the viaduct. There’s a documentary feel to it all for sure that the director loves, but it might be riding the line. The death of their mother (we’ve already proven that the leviathan is the Chitauri mama) fills all the Chitauri with rage to the point where one seemingly rips its own face off. Oh wait, that’s a mask. So does that help them breathe in space then? Too many questions…

The hero shot is the response to the screaming Chitauri. Hulk screams. Clint nocks. Thor wields. Natasha… loads. Steve readies. Iron Man… stands. They all get into their pose and it works well. Plus, it plays into the nature of the comic book origins with something that really feels like it could’ve been a splash page. From this, we get more leviathans which triggers Tony to essentially put Steve in charge finally, and the team goes to work. It’s a minute full of fantastic moments. Tune in!
