THE AVENGERS




Written by

Joss Whedon






"And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's
mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a
common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born--to fight the
foes no single superhero could withstand! Through the years,
their roster has prospered, changing many times, but their glory
has never been denied! Heed the call, then--for now, the Avengers
Assemble!"

BURNING BLUE FLAMES. A smoky cube shape emerges - THE TESSERACT.
Filling the screen with BLACKNESS.

CUT TO:

EXT. THRONE ROOM, SPACE * NIGHT

Kneeling behind a THRONE, a CLOTHED, ARMORED FIGURE known as THE
OTHER, bows.

THE OTHER (V.O.)
The Tesseract has awakened. It is on a
little world. A human world. They would
wield its power,...

CUT TO:
THE OTHER faces a HORNED SHAPED SHADOW. LOKI. Loki is handed the
CHITAURI SCEPTER, a long golden handle, fitted with a blue gem
encircled with silver blades.

THE OTHER (V.O.)
But our ally knows its workings as they
never will. He is ready to lead. And
our force, our Chitauri, will follow.

HIGH WIDE ON: TENS OF THOUSANDS of CHITAURI stand ready in a
seething mass of neat rows and columns....the ground simply

QUAKES.

THE OTHER (V.O.)
The world will be his. The universe
yours. And the humans, what can they do
but burn?

CUT TO:

EXT. S.H.I.E.L.D. PROJECT P.E.G.A.S.U.S FACILITY * NIGHT

Out in the NEW MEXICO desert, a remote research facility is in a
state of panic. It's an evacuation. A SWOOPING helicopter flies
in.

CHAOS. Men in suits run around like in the typical `we have to
leave' fashion. Soldiers on foot jump onto Humvees, accelerating
the hell out of there. A VOICE bellows from hidden loudspeakers.

EXT. HELICOPTER PAD * CONTINUOUS

Standing a few yards from the landing pad, A Fed in a suit with
badass shades, peers at the helicopter as it lands. This is

SHIELD AGENT PHIL COULSON.

Walking out of the helicopter is SHIELD AGENT MARIA HILL, SEXY,
FIERCE AND DETERMINED. Following her, SHIELD DIRECTOR NICK FURY
climbs out. Hill and Fury approach Agent Coulson.

NICK FURY
How bad is it?

AGENT PHIL COULSON
That's the problem, sir. We don't know.
