Can you believe we’re less than a month away from the DVD/Blu-ray release of The Avengers? I’m so ready to lovingly place this disc into my Blu-ray player and sit for hours watching all of the extras and deleted scenes. Speaking of which, here we have an alternate opening to the film and it sets a completely different tone for the movie. Go ahead and watch it, I’ll catch you afterward.
Somber stuff, right?. I actually don’t really care for it very much. It alludes too much to the epic battle that is almost the entirety of the film’s third act without really showing anything of particular interest. It’s tone is the kind of hopeful/depressing vibe you see in a lot of war movies. I’m glad they ultimately went in the direction they chose, pretty much just getting right down to business from the get-go. That’s the way I like my Avengers! Less talk more Hulk!
Now there’s a catchy slogan if I’ve ever heard one.
