Re: Avengers Assembled: News and Speculation - - - Part 69
Looks like the released clip from yahoo is just a bit shorter/just a tease of the full length scene that will be on the Blu-Ray *cough* yeah...Anywho... I completely understand why the Alternate Opening (and the ending as well) was cut. I will say, though, there are some shots from the Alternate Opening that I wish they could've found a way to integrate somewhere into the final battle...such as a low camera shot looking up at Thor standing with Mjolnir in focus dripping (Chitauri?) blood, a different shot of IM's faceplate skidding across the ground that I think I like a touch more than the one that ended up in the final film.
Hill:Then aliens invaded New York & were beaten back, by among others, a giant green monster, a costumed hero from the 40's...and a god
Ward: I don't think Thor is technically a god.
Hill: Well...you haven't been near his arms.
