Yesterday we brought you an interesting alternate opening to Marvel Studios’ The Avengers that will appear as an extra on the forthcoming Blu-ray. Today, another deleted scene from the movie has been released online.
You can watch the scene here below.
The scene acts as an alternate introduction to Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), better known to us as Captain America, and prefaces his first scene with S.H.I.E.L.D. honcho Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the final cut. We see Cap going about his everyday life in the modern world: pining for his lady love Peggy, riding the subway, and flirting with a coffee shop waitress (Ashley Johnson) who was briefly glimpses being saved by Captain America during the final battle with Loki and the Chitauri. This deleted moment also provides us with a brief look at the MetLife building that was replaced digitally in the final film with Stark Tower, which Steve can be seen sketching during his conversation with the waitress, as well as yet another priceless cameo by the Man himself, Stan Lee.
A little over two months ago we announced that Marvel Studios had begun the search for the director of their Captain America sequel set to be released in 2014. Their shortlist was narrowed down to four finalists: F. Gary Gray (The Negotiator), George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), and Anthony and Joe Russo (You, Me, and Dupree).
Today, Borys Kit at the Hollywood Reporter has announced that Marvel has selected the one who will lead Marvel’s Sentinel of Liberty into big screen battle, or should I say the two? Yes friends, the Russo brothers are in final talks to take the helm of Captain America 2.
Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures have unleashed the final theatrical poster for their upcoming superhero team feature The Avengers, loaded with star quality and credits and the works. You can check it out here below.
It’s not the most exciting image Marvel could have used for the poster heralding the film that has been in the works ever since Samuel L. Jackson stepped out of the shadows during the end credits scene in the first Iron Man, but it works well. I think it’s just a shame that the studio couldn’t have rounded up the entire cast at the same time for a poster photo shoot rather than put together this somewhat sloppily composed image.
