Disney has released a clip from “Item 47,” a 12-minute sequel to (spin-off of?) Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers,” which will be included on the “Avengers” DVDs and Blu-rays due to hit shelves Sept. 25:

Maximiliano Hernández reprises for “Item 47” his “Thor”/“The Consultant”/“The Avengers” role of Agent Sitwell, who this time is tasked alongside a fellow SHIELD agent played by Titus Welliver (the man who would be Smokezilla in “Lost”) to track down a pair of humans who have taken to robbing banks with an extraterrestrial weapon left behind by the invading Chitauri.

The law-breaking couple, Benny and Claire, are played by Lizzy Caplan (“Cloverfield,” “Party Down,” “New Girl”) and Jesse Bradford (“Swimfan”).

Marvel exec Louis D’Esposito directed the short from a screenplay by Eric Pearson, who also wrote the screenplays for two much shorter and less elaborate SHIELD-centric short films – “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer” and “The Consultant” – included on earlier Marvel Blu-rays.

The "Avengers" Blu-ray is also rumored to contain as many as 35 minutes of deleted footage written and directed by Whedon.
