SDCC 2012: New Poster For Marvel's 'Avengers' Short Film 'Item 47'
Reported by Outsiders - 12:17 PM 2012.07.11
EW has revealed the exclusive Comic-Con poster for Marvel’s new One-Shot short film Item 47. The story behind Item 47 is that a not-so-ethical young couple recover one of the lost alien weapons and figure out how to make it work. Then, of course, they have to figure out what to do with it — and their solution is a life of crime. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents played by Lost‘s man-in-black Titus Welliver, and Maximiliano Hernández (reprising his role as Sitwell from Thor and The Avengers) are assigned the task of stopping them and getting the weapon back. The short film is directed by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito.
Marvel will be giving out the poster during Comic-Con at a secret screening of Item 47 on Friday night. To attend the screening, you must be in San Diego. You'll also want to download the free Avengers Second Screen App from the iTunes store, which will provide a series of clues leading to a hunt Friday morning through San Diego. Follow the trail properly and it will lead to a screening that evening. I guess Marvel believes everyone who attends the Comic-Con uses an iPhone?
If you can't attend the Comic-Con or can't be in San Diego, the short film will be available in September on the Avengers DVD.
