We’ve still got a month to go before Marvel Studios’ billion dollar blockbuster The Avengers hits home video, so to whet our appetites until then, I bring you a preview of the movie’s Blu-ray bonus features in the form of an uproarious gag reel, deleted scene, and extended scene.
You can watch all three videos here below.
The gag reel is your usual collection of on-set goof-ups and crack-ups, but it has a metric ton of bleeped swearing and a great (and hilariously unexpected) use of Jerry Reed’s Smokey and the Bandit theme “East Bound and Down.” The two scenes of additional footage are extensions of scenes already in the movie. We get a few more funny bits with Mark Ruffalo‘s Dr. Bruce Banner and a sweet-natured security guard played by the great character actor Harry Dean Stanton. Finally, there’s some more interaction between Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) from earlier in the story. They’re both nice beats but their deleted from the final film is understandable.
