Comic-Con 2012: Marvel’s "Item 47" to screen at end of SDCC scavenger hunt

Marvel will be unveiling at Comic-Con the One-Shot short film titled “Item 47” that will be released officially with “The Avengers” when it hits stores on September 25th of this year on Blu-Ray and DVD.

It all began with the Thor and Captain America Blu-ray/DVDs, Marvel Studios had started releasing short films or One-Shots. The Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) shorts were cute, and interesting but nothing particularly groundbreaking. However, Marvel might be adding some more weight with their latest One-Shot, “Item 47”.

The short film will be available on the Blu-ray/DVD for The Avengers (which will stores on September 25th), but Marvel will show Item 47 at a special screening at Comic-Con. The title refers to an alien gun that falls into the hands of a hard-luck couple played by Lizzy Caplan (party down and Cloverfield) and Jesse Bradford (Swimfan and Flags of a Fathers) after the epic battle in The Avengers. Two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (Maximiliano Hernández and Titus Welliver) are tasked with getting the gun and capturing the couple, who are going on a crime-spree with their new toy.
While the first two Marvel one-shots, “Something Funny Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer” and “The Consultant” both ran 4 minutes, “Item 47” will run 12 minutes.  

In addition to the poster and announcement, Marvel also let fans in on another surprise this morning. Those attending Comic-Con will be offered the chance to download a special app “Avengers Second Screen” that will work as a scavenger hunt guide to clues, ultimately leading to a special showing of  “Item 47” the evening of Thursday, July 12th.
