German briefcase manufacturer Rimowa is the company that made the briefcase used in 'The Avengers' – the one you see the Tesseract being carried in. This bit of trivia will become relevant momentarily. The briefcase in the movie isn't an exclusive for the film, but is a slightly modified version of the Rimowa Topas, which is an aluminum briefcase that comes in at around $750. When Disney decided to include replicas of this briefcase with the 'Avengers: Phase One' box set, Rimowa wasn't happy. They sued and now things are getting complicated.
