As we move closer to the release of The Avengers on Blu-ray, we’re slowly getting a peek at more and more special features that will appear on the disc. We previously saw a wonderful deleted scene between Mark Ruffalo and Harry Dean Stanton, and now a clip from a new featurette has landed online that’s basically just people saying nice things about Ruffalo and Chris Evans. We see Marvel’s Kevin Feige tout Evans’ ability to inhabit the character of Steve Rogers, and Joss Whedon enthusiastically states that he had a very short list of actors he wanted for The Hulk and Mark Ruffalo was at the very top.
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The Avengers hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on September 25th, at which point you’ll likely lose most of your day rummaging through the bounty of supplemental material.
