This summer's blockbuster "Marvel's The Avengers" has reached far and wide, but when it comes to Blu-ray September 25 fans will meet two more people whose lives changed after the events of the film.
Available exclusively on the "Marvel's The Avengers" Blu-ray, "Marvel One-Shot: Item 47" stars Lizzy Caplan ("Party Down") and Jesse Bradford ("Flags of Our Fathers") as two denizens of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who just so happen to have some advanced Chitauri tech literally fall into their laps after the feature film's final battle.

The 12-minute short film features Benny (Bradford) and Claire (Caplan), a normal couple turned modern-day Bonnie and Clyde after they get their hands on one of the discarded alien guns. They end up putting the weapon to some less than noble use, so two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, played by Maximiliano Hernandez ("Thor," "Marvel's The Avengers") and Titus Welliver ("Lost"), set out to relieve them of the out-of-this-world firearm.
Directed by Louis D'Esposito, Co-President of Marvel Studios, "Marvel One-Shot: Item 47" will premiere at a special screening during next week's Comic-Con International: San Diego!
