'The Avengers' Releases Alternate Beginning
Fans of the pre-summer blockbuster superhero flick, The Avengers, directed by former cult hero-turned-blockbuster sensation Joss Whedon and featuring an all-star cast of Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders and Stellan Skarsgard, are gearing up for the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release in less than a month, and now spoilers tell us that they have something else to look forward to — a new, alternate opening sequence.
That's right, those of you who weren't satisfied with the S.H.I.E.L.D. break-in and the somewhat confused invasion that followed, you can now erase if from memory and choose the alternate option, in which Agent Maria Hill (Smulders) is interviewed by her superiors about the events of the movie in a flash-forward.
Smulders' character, looking beat up and ragged, tries to explain her position on the events of the movie in the short clip made available online. "You want to know what went wrong, how this horror — this catastrophe — could have been averted," she says to her interrogators before immediately jumping to blame Jackson's Nick Fury. "That man," she muses, shaking her head. "We're at war, and he thinks about superheroes!" It's incidental, of course, that they actually saved the world.
Marvel's The Avengers will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on September 25.
