‘The Avengers’ Was Originally Rated R; Find Out What Scene Had to Be Cut

Marvel

Most Marvel movies are fairly benign as far as far as their content goes. There's very little in the way of swearing, no nudity, mostly comic violence and zero drug use. So, it was fairly shocking to learn that 'The Avengers' was rated R by the MPAA when Marvel initially submitted it for review. What scene caused the problem and what did director Joss Whedon have to cut to get a PG-13? Let's find out.

If you say you saw 'The Avengers' coming, you're a liar.

And we're not necessarily talking about the film's massive box office success or cultural impact, either. That's all after-the-fact stuff. We're talking about the fact that the film exists in the first place. We're talking about how Marvel Studios (with a little help from some deep-pocketed friends) managed to create a series of individual franchises with their own films and characters before having them all come together in a special crossover event. 'The Avengers' didn't just unite Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk, it openly acknowledged that all of these characters lived in the same world and that the events of their own films could actually have an impact on each other.

They all live in the same universe ... and audiences love it.
