Whedon never shot that scene. He cut it from the screenplay.

Hopefully they'll save it for Cap 2.
It'd probably be better off that way, anyway. There's likely going to be too much going on in The Avengers to fit something like that scene in, whereas it'd fit more organically in Cap 2.

It's also one of those kind of scenes where you'd get more out of it if you had seen the first film. And I'm sure that's one of the reasons it got cut.

I think they've said that the weren't going to be addressing a lot of the characters individual stories and issues that much in this one, so yeah they're probably saving that kind of stuff for Cap 2, just like they're saving the Thor/Jane Foster stuff for Thor 2.

Ads have started turning up on TV down here. Looks like it's going to be very cool.

My wife wants to know if Thor appears topless in this film too, it's the only reason she'll come and see it...

I so wish I was joking...

Most of the Loki VS Stark banter intact

http://www.rte.ie/ten/2012/0411/avengers.html
I've watched that scene three times, and I've been trying to find a way to formulate what I don't like about it, and I think the best way to put it is: There's no tension. Seriously, there's no tension at all, considering that it's a middle-aged mortal man talking smack to a literal genius, mastermind demigod. It's shot like a pleasant chat between two acquaintances. (And, my God, I don't think the cinematography could be any more lifeless. This scene was lit just as brightly as the forest scene we've seen in the trailers, which was lit just as brightly as the scenes on the Helicarrier that we've seen.)

Hiddleston and Downey, Jr., are clearly trying their damnedest despite how woefully under-directed the whole scene is and how hokey the dialogue is (that whole scene feels like it was written just to be put into a trailer and commercials -- "you can be damn sure we'll AVENGE IT ), but, fuck.
I thought the original trailer material was a bit weird, but this longer cut makes more sense. It's a ruse, a feint before the punch.

I think I'm done watching clips now. The Tony/Loki one was enough for me. The best thing about all of these clips, though, is it means we're only a couple of weeks away from the movie's release!

I hadn't even realized we're just a little over two weeks away.

I so cannot wait!

We'll be getting 30 minutes of deleted footage in the "Avengers" Blu-Ray release (I'm guessing probably sometime in November, maybe October. He talks about the scene with Peggy as well. Apologies if this particular article has been posted, I didn't see it.

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

So you know how quite a few people were saying that re-naming the film as 'Marvel Avengers Assemble' over here was unnecessary? Well I was just talking about the film with my parents and they thought it was going to be about the old tv show

So did my brother, when I was telling him about the movie. He was thinking, "Why would Loki be a villain in the Avengers?" I'm sure he had images of Emma Peel judo-kicking a Norse god.

but im not sure how adding "Assemble" helps any, one it makes it sounds like a Transformers movie, and 2 (whilst never having seen The Avengers) im pretty sure there could be a movie, about the first time, those character meet each other, or we assembled, possibly by the head of a shady top secret organisation.

Only way I can think to solve it is "Marvel Comics Avengers", but that wont stop anyone calling it "The Avengers" as most people will.

Pretty sure once you see the trailer, people will not think its a move about those Avengers, both Iron Man and Hulk are easily recognisable, even to those who may not have seen the movies.

Avengers Assemble may well be a slogan from the comics, but only comic book fans will really know this, and its those people who are most likely to know which movie they are watching.
