‘The Avengers’ Deleted Scene: Captain America Adapts to a New Time
Back when Marvel revealed the official details of ‘The Avengers‘ DVD and Blu-ray release, we knew tons of deleted scenes would be in store. We then got a taste of it when one piece of footage featuring Mark Ruffalo hit the Web, and we got a bit more time to peer into the Hulk’s story line.
Now another ‘Avengers’ deleted scene, this time featuring Captain America, from the DVD and Blu-ray special features section has hit. So, what new scene did we miss out on in the theatrical version?
Chris Evans teased the Captain America-focused deleted scenes from ‘The Avengers’ DVD and Blu-ray back during an interview back at Toronto International Film Festival. He revealed that the footage would delve deeper into Steve Roger’s personal conflicts, and this newly released clip skims the surface.
Captain America has awakened in present day New York City, where everyone he’s known and been close with has been dead for quite some time. But he takes this even harder when he sees a photo of Peggy, his former love. Now weaving through the busy streets of Manhattan, he finds himself at an outdoor restaurant at the foot of Stark Tower. It’s there that he strikes up a semi-flirty conversation with a waitress and Stan Lee makes a three-second-long cameo.
The deleted scene finishes with the Cap renting out gym space — the same gym where we first see him in ‘The Avengers’ beating the crap out of a punching bag. Check out the full ‘Avengers’ deleted scene below and let us know what you think in the comments. Does it make you want to buy the DVD? Do you think these same struggles will play a part in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘?
