After S.H.I.E.L.D confiscates Jane's work in Thor, the researchers discuss what they'll do next.

Erik mentions two colleagues. The first is reasonably implied to be Bruce Banner, but who is the second colleague he mentions?

Transcribed from the film:


Who are these people?


I knew this scientist... a pioneer in gamma radiation. S.H.I.E.L.D showed up and... umm. He wasn't heard from again.


They're not going to do that to us. I'm going to get everything back.


mumbles Please. Let me contact one of my colleagues. He's had some dealings with these people before. I'll email him and maybe he can help.


They took your laptop, too.


While no further mention is made of Erik's other colleague in the final film, the original script reveals the identity to be Dr. Pym (presumably Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man).


(TO DARCY) Will you please stop talking about your iPod?!

(TO SELVIG) Who are these people?


No one knows much about them. But I knew a scientist -- a pioneer in gamma radiation. SHIELD showed up, and he was never heard from again.


I'm not going to let them do this. I'm getting everything back.


Please, let me contact one of my colleagues. Dr. Pym has had some dealings with these people. I'll e- mail him and see if he can help.


They took your laptop, too.

  • That would have been a really cool Easter Egg, especially now Ant Man has shown us that Hank Pym does in fact have dealings with SHIELD. – Dr R Dizzle Aug 26 '15 at 17:52

The pioneer in gamma radiation is referring to Dr. Bruce Banner.

The colleague who had dealt with Shield prior is Dr. Hank Pym.

  • The earlier answer already said that and offered evidence to prove it. Can you offer any further info, or anything at all to show that this answer improves upon what's already been said? – Valorum May 5 at 14:07
