    A new deleted scene with Steve Rogers trying to acclimate to the 21st century.

    I actually wish we could've kept this one. And the appearance by Stan Lee is awesome. Who says he can't have more than one cameo per movie?

    I gotta say I rather liked that. I'm looking forward to the deleted scenes.

    That was a really good scene and really does add a LOT to Cap's character in the movie. Too bad it was cut.

    You guys need to stop spoiling yourself and just wait for for the video release to see everything in the best quality. :p

    I don't consider viewing deleted scenes as spoiling myself as they aren't part of the actual movie. Furthermore, I don' t yet have a Blu-Ray player and the bonus features will be on that disk. So, for the time being, online is the only way I'll see them.

    I can accept a deleted scene, whether it be a flip clip or a scene included in a novelization, as simply something that happened offscreen only as long as it doesn't conflict with or contradict anything onscreen.

    I was disappointed when this scene was cut because I knew it was filmed.

    With this scene cut, you have no idea why that waitress is staring at Captain America during the final battle.

    Huh. My local theater has gotten Avengers back in for the weekend. That's interesting. I'm kinda tempted to go a sixth time.

    Yeah, it's being re-released in a lot of theatres for the long weekend. I've only seen it once, but I might consider a second viewing.

    It's a special Labor Day weekend expansion. It's expected to last till Thursday when it will either contract or shift those theater counts to the bargain theaters before the DVD release at the end of September.

    For those curious it also may see it cross the $621m domestic mark, it's around $618m now, and that would give it around what it needs for a 3x multiplier. Which in box office circles is an impressive mark, even more so considering how it opened in order to achieve that.

    The deleted Steve Rogers/waitress(/Stan Lee) scene is beautiful, especially in context with what goes down between them later in the film. It really is too bad that had to go.

    I could see the video, but I understand that a lot of Captain America scenes were cut. Basically, the movie was originally written from his perspective and it created the danger of overshadowing everything else.

    Still haven't seen them yet, but I think deleting those scenes was the right call. We didn't need one character to take over the movie at the expense of the other team members. This didn't need to be the Iron Man and friends movie or Captain America and friends movie.

    That was one of the problems with the first three X-men movies, letting Wolverine take over while the rest of the team was put in the background.

    It wouldn't have "taken over the movie" but would have better shown how detached CA was from the modern world, a rather important aspect of his character.

    Marvel probably thought it was best to save that for the Captain America sequel.

    BTW, that's supposed to be "couldn't see."

    I agree they needed to show it, but I think they did to a certain extent - mostly for laughs, but they worked well. The "I get it" line was great. Maybe one more scene would have been fine, but I understand they deleted nearly a half hour of Captain America scenes.

    True, but I think that one few-minute long scene would've been a good way to show CA's adjustment problems it also had a nice moment between Cap and the waitress and a good Stan Lee cameo.

    I mean, it sort of "meant something" to see Cap looking over the dossiers of Haley Atwell and Howard and Tony Stark.
