'The Avengers' Alternate Opening

The movie is coming out next month on Blu-ray and DVD. Here's the alternate opening if you can't wait.

I told myself I wasn't going to post these clips anymore. The Avengers is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 25. We've been seeing deleted scenes, gag reels and that sort of stuff. It seems these clips shouldn't be released prior to the release of the actual disc. With the alternate opening being released on Yahoo Movies, I couldn't resist.

It definitely changes the tone of the movie. I can't imagine it actually opening like this. Pretty strange. Wonder if the rest would have still played out the same.

What do you think about this?

Whats-her-name is a terrible actress, otherwise I might have bought it.

They need to stop trolling and called the Tesseract the Cosmic Cube already.

The bit with Hulk was a bit unexpected...

Wow, I'm really not feeling this alternate opening at all. Maria Hill is such a Negative Nancy here, but of course that's her character so it comes as no surprise. Nah, the actual opening was way better...best thing for this scene is to be an alternate opening. Still good all the same since I get to see my fave Cobie Smulders in it once more.

I thought the Avengers was really good, but always felt like it was missing some things in terms of plot. I really wish this scene had been left in, in hindsight the film seems incomplete without this.

No offense to anyone who is a fan of Ms. Cobie Smulders, but i think that she should have been re-cast. She is moderately tolerable on HIMYM, but i found her to be so annoying in The Avengers. I didnt find the character annoying, just her. I feel that she doesnt have the ferver to play Hill, and she looked terrible with a gun in her hands. Some people just dont look good with a weapon, and she is one of them. Again, this is my extremely negative opinion, and do not expect anyone to agree with me. I am glad this scene didnt make it in the final cut.
