Warning: For those of you who haven't seen the films, Thor and The Avengers, don't read this blog post until you see both of those films.

I'm extremely confused about one thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Why I'm confused

In the after-credit scene in Thor, Erik Selvig was brought to a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility where he was told of the Tesseract. Soon Loki controls Selvig, but in The Avengers Loki didn't control Selvig until he came to Earth.

What I think happened

I think that it was just a reference to Loki going to control Selvig in The Avengers.

Your idea

I want to know what you think. Please put why you chose it in the comments (if you want to).
