Minute One Hundred Thirty Six: From Joss Whedon’s Name on Iron Man’s Chest to The Opening Riffs of Soundgarden’s Live to Rise

Eric Deutsch from Time to Rewind, Escape From New York Minute, and Flash Gordon Minute joins us in this episode!

In the one-hundred-thirty-sixth minute of The Avengers

We end the special credits with the director’s name, which gives us a chance to dig into Joss Whedon’s career a bit and our thoughts on him, and we only call him Tig Notaro a few times! After that, we transition to Sanctuary and find The Other monologuing to the back of a throne. Why are they here? Is this Thanos’ thinking spot? We spend a bit of time breaking down The Other’s line, and then we get into the appearance of Thanos, aka Man No. 1. That means we get to break down Damion Poitier a bit as well as he portrayed him here. It’s a great conversation really breaking this mid-credits scene down, what it meant at the time, Death’s role possibly in the franchise after this, and where it took us. Tune in!
