We might have to wait another year until “Iron Man 3″ hits theaters, but we’ll get a look into the Marvel cinematic universe before then. The studio is releasing a new one shot called “Item 47,” which was screened for the first time at Comic-Con, in the “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 1″ boxed set. Marvel has unveiled two clips from the 12-minute short film, and both give us a better idea of what we can expect from its follow-up story to “The Avengers.”
But first, a bit of background. “Item 47″ stars Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford, both newcomers to the Marvel universe. They are two normal people who find a discarded weapon (the titular Item 47) from the Chitauri invasion that occurred in “The Avengers” and go off on a Bonnie and Clyde-style adventure while two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (played by “The Avengers’s” Maximiliano Hernandez and “Lost’s” Titus Welliver) try to stop them. Caplan and Bradford’s characters are appropriately named Benny and Claire.
