‘The Avengers’ Deleted Scene Centers On Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America
With the DVD and Blu-ray release of ‘The Avengers’ fast approaching, Latino-review have got their mitts on this new extended deleted scene from the film introducing Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America. Of all the deleted scenes I’ve seen from ‘The Avengers,’ this is by a stretch my favourite – I’m loving the Stan Lee cameo! Marvel have provided the following scene description to accompany the scene: “War in Europe” reads a newspaper headline as we cut to stock footage of Nazis in World War II with newsreel voiceover. “America heeds the call to fight for freedom! And at the front of the fight, shoulder to shoulder with our battling boys is Captain America!” Cut to some newsreel footage of Cap in his old costume walking through European War zones. The newsreel describes Cap as a product of science, a name every Nazi fears. They say the new weapons are no match for Cap and we see some black and white news reel footage of Cap fighting one of the Hydra soldiers with a Tesseract gun.
“He’s the man who knocks the Axis on their backs-is.” says the newsreel as we see Steve Rogers is watching it on a laptop present day. He shuts off the video and looks sad in the laptop refletion. We reveal Steve Rogers’ apartment as he leafs through the files of his teammates from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ all of them stamped “Deceased.” BUT WAIT! Carter, Margaret “Peggy” – this file is unstamped. Close up so we can see Haley Atwell’s face and see she’s listed as “RETIRED” and “INACTIVE.” Cap looks sad, then we pan down to Peggy Carter’s current address in Winchester, UK and a telephone number.
Steve Rogers looks at the phone: a wireless one in it’s cradle and decides against it. He puts Peggy’s file aside and picks up the next one: Howard Stark – DECEASED. He places that to the side and the next file is modern-styled and has Robert Downey Jr’s face on it: Tony Stark, Iron Man. Steve looks thoughtful and we cut to:
Exterior New York Street – Steve Rogers in street clothes walks by a cell phone stand, past and ad for a new Acura, we cut to Steve Rogers writing something in outdoor seating area of a coffee shop (BONUS – THERE’S THE BACK OF STAN LEE’S HEAD!) as he’s looking at the Metlife building…which I’m assuming didn’t get turned into Stark Tower before this was cut from the film. Reveal the Rogers is QUITE the sketch artist as he doodles Stark Tower.
Waitress (Ashley Johnson, the same one cap saves later and the one talking about him at the end of the film) approaches and asks Steve if he’s “waiting for the big guy.” Steve asks: “M’am?” Waitress: “Iron Man. A lot of people eat here just to see him fly by.” She’s all flirty, he says: “Maybe another time.” She tells him the table is his however long he likes and mentions they have free wireless. Steve, confused, asks: “Radio?” We get a moment where Ashley Johnson turns around and looks at Cap in that disbelieving-slash-attracted-to-this-guy way and STAN LEE CAMEO #1, the man turns around and says: “Ask for her number you moron!”
Cut to Steve on the subway looking sad that everyone he ever knew is dead, then we cut to Steve paying a guy at an old boxing gym to use the space…and we join the Cap-Meets-Nick-Fury scene that made it into the film.
Widely praised by fans and critics alike, Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ is currently sitting comfortably at the third spot on the all-time world box office list with a hefty haul of $1.436 billion, trailing only James Cameron’s ’Titanic’ ($2.185 billion) and ‘Avatar’ ($2.782 billion). Marvel recently signed a deal for Whedon to return for ‘The Avengers 2′ as well as help develop a new live-action series for Marvel Television at ABC. The filmmaker will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe. ‘The Avengers 2′ will follow ’Iron Man 3,’ ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and
presumably hopefully Edgar Wright’s ‘Ant-Man.’ Marvel Studios has set a May 1st, 2015 release date for ‘The Avengers 2.’
Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in ‘Iron Man,’ ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ ‘Iron Man 2,’ ‘Thor,’ and ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ the global box office for ‘The Avengers’ has obliterated the totals of those individual films. The totals for those preceding films are: ‘Iron Man’ with $585.1 million worldwide, ‘The Incredible Hulk’ with $263.4 million worldwide, ’Iron Man 2′ with $623.9 million worldwide, ’Thor’ with $449.3 million worldwide, and finally ‘Captain America’ with $368.6 million worldwide. Directed by Joss Whedon, ‘The Avengers’ (‘Avengers Assemble’ in the UK) stars Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye/Clint Barton), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man/Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), and Tom Hiddleston (Loki). The likes of Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, and Stellen Skarsgard co-star.
’The Avengers’ is available as a 2D Blu-ray Combo Pack, a 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack and on DVD from September 17th in the UK and September 25th in the US. The “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled” collector’s set arrives in the US on September 25th, while it currently has no UK release date. The nearest thing to it on these shores is the Blu-ray “Marvel’s The Avengers – 6-Disc Box Set”, which lands on September 17th. The synopsis and production notes for Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ can be read below the clip. My interviews for the film can be found here: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, and Joss Whedon.
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, “Marvel’s The Avengers” brings together the mightiest super hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time. The star studded cast of super heroes will be joined by Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother) as Agent Maria Hill of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as Tom Hiddleston (“Wallander”) and Stellan Skarsgård (“Angels & Demons,” “Mamma Mia!”) who will both reprise their respective roles as Loki and Professor Erik Selvig from the upcoming Marvel Studios’ feature “Thor.”
Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the super hero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster.
“Marvel’s The Avengers” is being produced by Marvel Studios’ President, Kevin Feige, and executive produced by Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Louis D’Esposito, Patty Whitcher, and Jon Favreau. Marvel Studios’ Jeremy Latcham and Victoria Alonso will co-produce.
The creative production team also includes Oscar nominated director of photography Seamus McGarvey (“Atonement”), production designer James Chinlund (“25th Hour”), Oscar winning costume designer Alexandra Byrne (“Elizabeth: The Golden Age”), Oscar winning visual effects supervisor Janek Sirrs (“Iron Man 2,” “The Matrix”), visual effects producer Susan Pickett (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2″), stunt coordinator R.A. Rondell (“Superman Returns”), and four-time Oscar nominated special effects supervisor Dan Sudick (“Iron Man,” “War of the Worlds”). The editors include Oscar nominated Paul Rubell (“Collateral”) and Jeffrey Ford (“Crazy Heart”).
