"Forty-seven known alien objects hit the ground after the portal closed above Manhattan. All dormant, all dead. Except this one."
Jasper Sitwell

Item 47 is the third in a series of Marvel One-Shots, released on the The Avengers Blu-ray on September 25, 2012. It is set right after The Avengers.

The short film was directed by Louis D'Esposito from a screenplay by Eric Pearson.


A couple find a Chitauri Gun after the Battle of New York and proceed to make some very negative decisions with it.



After the Battle of New York, Benjamin Pollack and Claire Weiss, a down-on-their-luck couple find a discarded Chitauri Gun, referred to as 'Item 47' by S.H.I.E.L.D., and decide to rob a few banks. S.H.I.E.L.D. assignes Felix Blake and Jasper Sitwell on a mission to neutralize the couple and retrieve the weapon; during the briefing, the two reminisce about the recent death of Phil Coulson. Sitwell tracks the couple down and the subsequent confrontation results in the motel room where the couple is staying to be wrecked, and all the stolen money blown to pieces.

Shield new recruits

Instead of killing the couple, due to how Pollack managed to reactivate the Chitauri weapon, Sitwell recruits both of them in S.H.I.E.L.D.; with Pollack assigned to the R&D 'think-tank' to reverse engineer the Chitauri tech, and Weiss becoming Blake's assistant (Blake not being too keen on the idea). Pollack's work at S.H.I.E.L.D. is to refine the Chitauri technology first into a more human-friendly design, then into heavier, vehicle-mounted weapons, and finally into an artillery piece.
