‘Incredible Hulk’ Alternate Opening Shows Captain America Frozen in Ice!
  |  @   |  

Back in April, The Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier revealed that a Captain America cameo was cut from the final theatrical version of the film (see Captain America Cameo Cut From “˜Incredible Hulk’), but that it would be included in the DVD release.

While my response to Leterrier’s Hulk reboot was lukewarm, hearing about this cut scene — which had Dr. Bruce Banner meeting up with Captain American in the Arctic — made me really excited for the DVD release.

My copy of the 3-disc DVD arrived last night and the scene in question can be found in the “Alternate Opening” feature on Disc 2. After watching it, I assumed that the Cap cameo didn’t make it into the DVD either.

As it turns out, this scene isn’t some great meet up between Banner and Cap, but rather a “blink and you’ll miss it” situation. Our friend Neil over at FSR posted a screen grab of the “cameo,” which is actually of Captain America with his mighty shield frozen in the ice.

Like I said, don’t blink, or you’ll miss it. I had to watch this scene about four times before my eye caught it and that was after knowing where it was (it comes near the end of the scene at 2:23 on my timer). Brad over at RoS posted a sequence of screencaps of the scene, to help us see Cap in the ice.

This might be stretching it, but Leterrier did say that Captain America was in the Arctic for this scene.

And for the record, they totally should have gone with this opening scene — which was cut because the studios and filmmakers thought it would be “too hard to young audiences to take.”
