Marvel always provides additional post-movie material for some way to tie up some loose ends and for this it presents small short films in the form of spin-offs, ramifications of the main story and that no fan should miss.
All these short films are called One-Shot, along with their description make up the title, this time we will talk about Article 47; directed by Louis D’Esposito, produced by Kevin Feige and written by Eric Pearson.
One-Shot Item 47 was released directly in home format, Blu Ray and DVD, and is set immediately after the events in New York during the battle of the Avengers against the Chitauri army, sent by Loki to earth.
As is well known, part of the city of New York was devastated thanks to that epic battle, everything is full of rubble and alien material, without problems the Chitauri corpses. Claire and Bennie, the son of a couple of young people who fail to get ahead with anything they do or propose, blame the fate of their recurring failures, without thinking that perhaps it is the way they intend to do things and their bad attitude
One day, walking through the alleys of the big apple, and rummaging through the rubble they get one of the powerful alien laser weapons; it doesn't work, but Bennie is an electronics expert and manages to repair it.
The couple decides to use the weapon to obtain quick and easy money, so they start a series of robberies in small banks in the area using a mask to hide their identity. The news that a masked couple storming banks whips the place carrying a laser weapon reaches the authorities of S.H.I.E.L.D; who assign agents Blake and Stiwell to capture the assailants and recover the powerful weapon to the label as Article 47.
Blake and Stiwell begin an arduous investigation, then many hours of surveillance are achieved with the criminal couple, who follow their hiding place; they hide in a small room in a motel that is dying on the outskirts of the city, there they hide the gun and all the stolen money.
S.H.I.E.L.D agents wait for the right moment to capture the thieves, and that happens during their last robbery; upon arriving at the motel to hide the loot, Blake and Stiwell identified an ambush that ends in a shooting by both of them; Bennie uses the laser weapon and destroys the place, including all the stolen money.
Both are arrested by the authorities and taken to the S.H.I.E.L.D facilities; where after the repairs made by Bennie to Item 47; offers them in the deal; they must choose between going to prison or working for them.
Both choose the second option, always under the terms of the agency; in that way, Bennie is assigned to the reverse engineering division for alien technology research; while Claire serves as an assistant of the technological department.
Thus, the life of this unique couple has taken a turn, reached the change they had always longed for.
