Agent Coulson is killed by Loki. Barton is released from Loki's mind control and unites with the Avengers. Loki uses the Tesseract to open a portal to space, unleashing the Chitauri army on New York City. The Avengers fight the army, but they're hopelessly outnumbered. The military launches a nuclear missile at the city, which Iron Man throws into the portal, destroying the Chitauri mothership, therefore killing the soldiers. Thor takes the Tesseract and a captive Loki back to Asgard for judgment. The Avengers part ways, but Fury suggests that they will be needed again. During the credits, we discover the real mastermind behind the Chitauri: Thanos.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the film, Tony Stark's chest ring can be seen glowing through his shirt except for two occasions when it's suddenly off - after Loki escapes from the helicarrier, and when Loki and Tony Stark are talking in Stark tower, even when he's wearing the same shirt.

Question: Why didn't Jarvis alert Tony immediately that Selvig was in his building assembling the machine on the balcony to open the portal?

Gary Stewart

Chosen answer: Jarvis only has access to Tony through certain methods. The Iron Man helmet has speakers for Jarvis to speak through and buildings Jarvis is installed in as well. It's likely Jarvis warned Tony through other means, but either A) Tony figured it out by the time he got the message or B) In all the chaos of the attack on the Hellicarrier, Tony didn't see it.
