Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release their smash superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier on multiple home viewing formats early next month. As a preview of what fans and potential buyers can expect from the extras that will be included, the studios have released two deleted scenes from the film.
You can check them out here below.
The scenes are brief and their deletion from the final cut is understandable, but they do offer some fine additional moments with some of the film’s supporting cast and a small bit of action. Between the dual critical and commercial success of this and Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel has had one hell of a year.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and Blu-ray 3D combo pack on September 9, 2014. Right now Amazon is only offering the film for sale on Digital HD for those who pre-order (the other formats are not up for pre-order yet).

If Captain America: The First Avenger is a ’40s wartime movie serial, then Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a ’70s political thriller in the vein of films like Three Days of the Condor and All the President’s Men.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Arrested Development, Community), Captain America: The Winter Soldier picks up two years after the events of The Avengers. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) lives in Washington, D.C. where he continues to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. A man in the wrong time, he struggles to adapt to contemporary society.
To his colleagues and devoted followers, George Joyner is a brilliant inventor with bold, innovative ideas that could revolutionize the way we travel and change the world as we know it. But to his long-suffering family he is a mercurial figure, an aloof father figure and distant husband unable to establish any genuine emotional bond with the loved ones once crucial to his public relations-friendly image as a wonderful family man.
As his billionaire employer Quattrone prepares to launch his latest top secret invention – a creation that the company’s rivals would pay handsomely and break every law in the book to get their grimy hands on – George finds his family slowly breaking away from him. His estranged wife Sonya wants to take her terminally ill father David to see a renowned (and expensive) Indian medicine man at Yellowstone National Park in the hope that his life can be saved, while his son Rochester maintains a brave and calm front in the face of his family’s complete disentegration. The only person who has not given up on George yet is his autistic daughter Michelle. When Sonya and Rochester leave to take David on what could be his final trip George begins a relationship with Michelle’s longtime behavior counselor Jamie. His attempts to salvage what remains of his personal life will result in greater consequences than he could have ever imagined.
