With less than a month before May 4 release date, the cast of The Avengers shot an additional scene last week. That was probably never meant to be public information, but nobody other than Robert Downey Jr. has any control over what RDJ decides to announce at press conferences. Marvel president Kevin Feige downplayed the importance of the additional shooting at the European premiere:
“I will tell you this: It was not a scene. It was not a scene. There’s little things. It’s been blown out of proportion. Which is fun, I like that things are blown out of proportion. Sometimes they’re true sometimes they’re not.” [Blogomatic 3000]
Okay, so it was not “a scene.” But it was something that they couldn’t shoot with body doubles. The myth of what happened that night is almost certainly better than the truth, so maybe it’s best we keep the mystery box shut. As always, Feige is a wealth of information on all things Marvel, so hit the jump for his recent comments on the status of Ant-Man and who owns the rights to Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.
