Thanks to Comic-Con, we now have our first extended clip from Marvel's new Avengers-related short film Item 47—which shows off a classic fake-out with the criminal duo who recovered that alien gun.

Starring Lizzy Caplan (Party Down) and Jesse Bradford (Flags of Our Fathers) as some would-be bank robbers, the first clip gives us some interplay between the two as they prepare for a heist. A team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are assigned to track them down, with Titus Welliver (Lost) and Maximiliano Hernández (Thor) in pursuit to recover the lost alien blaster.

Check out the footage below, and let us know what you think about that cute hate fake-out.

The entire 12-minute short was filmed at Comic-Con and generated a lot of buzz, and it will be included in the Avengers Blu-Ray release Sept. 25.
