“Avengers” deleted scene shows Captain America coping with modern times


Posted by on

Another day, another tease at the special features that will be available on “The Avengers” Blu-ray.

This one comes courtesy of Latino Review and features an alternate introduction to Captain America in “The Avengers.” It takes place before Nick Fury propositions him to join the titular crime-fighting team, and instead focuses on his trouble adjusting to the time gap between “Captain America: The First Avengers” and the present day. The scene includes some great moments like Cap considering calling his former love Peggy Carter and adjusting to the news that his former friend Howard Stark has died and been succeeded by his son Tony.

It also ties up some loose ends. Remember that blonde waitress included in the post-final battle interview sequence? Well, she actually had a scene earlier in the film that we can see here. Stan Lee also makes an alternate cameo appearance here, but we didn’t like it too much.

We’re pretty sure everyone can agree that Stan Lee’s actual cameo in “The Avengers” was much better than this one. The self-referential quality of that clip works much better in the total film than this one does, since the deleted scene’s Lee appearance isn’t especially memorable. Plus we know he would never actually think Cap is a “moron.”

Still, we understand why this scene got the axe, as much as we think audiences would have benefited from its inclusion. This clip is just the latest in a long series of special features that Marvel has released to tease the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of the film. You can find “The Avengers” available in stores starting September 25.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
