Jonesing for the Avengers DVD


I love movies. Sometimes, I love the behind the scenes stuff you get more than the actual movie. Avengers was amazing – Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, all the snarky banter. It was awesome. I am so ready for this movie to come out on DVD.

I’ve already posted about the gag reel. So funny. Joss Whedon appearing on set and yelling “Stop fighting!”.

Yesterday, saw a video of deleted Captain America footage. It was supposed to be his introduction piece in the movie. It featured what would have been Stan Lee’s cameo in the film (“Ask for her phone number, you moron.”). More importantly, it featured a bit with Steve Rogers and the waitress who is shown in the hostage situation and tv interview at the end of the movie. I can remember talking to my husband about her and asking why she was so prominent at the end. This footage should not have been removed.

Disney pulled the video but a writer Da7e, put a beat by beat description of it in an article.


When I buy this DVD, I’m watching all the extras first.
