New THE AVENGERS Deleted Scene Focuses on Captain America and Reveals Stan Lee’s Alternate Cameo

     August 29, 2012


Not unlike their strategy of releasing a bounty of clips before the film opened in theaters, Marvel is now releasing quite a few deleted scenes and featurettes in anticipation of the release of The Avengers on Blu-ray/DVD.  Yesterday we got a doozy in the form of an alternate opening to the film, and today we’ve got another pretty great scene that was left on the cutting room floor.  This one focuses on Captain America (and product placement), and follows Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers before he’s approached by Nick Fury about joining The Avengers.  We see Cap processing this new world and coming to terms with the fact that almost everyone he knows is now dead and gone.  We also see an alternate Stan Lee cameo and the appearance of a character that shows up much later in the theatrical cut.

It’s a really nice scene, but one can imagine it slowing down the momentum of the full film had it been left in.  That said, it’s still a must-watch.  Hit the jump to take a look.  The Avengers hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on September 25th.

[Update: We’ve been asked to remove the clip at Marvel’s request, as this apparently wasn’t an official release.]
