As The Avengers has solidified itself in cinematic history with it's #3 spot on the all-time box office list, the superhero smash of the year is coming home to Blu-Ray and DVD in just one month's time. Though the film clocks in at two and a half hours, director Joss Whedon revealed he had to cut some parts from the film in order to reach a theatrical cut that was half an hour shorter.
Now, Marvel Studios is ready to start promoting the film heading home to shelves and with it comes the first of numerous deleted scenes that will be made available upon release. The scene hitting today showcases Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner, after escaping the Helicarrier, in an even longer talk with the man who finds him played by veteran Harry Dean Stanton.
What's great about the scene is that while Ruffalo was a breakout actor for the MCU in The Avengers, this scene adds much more weight to his eventual choice of showing up in New York during the final battle. We know that Banner has a huge internal crisis during the course of the movie as he sees Hulk as a curse. Here, Stanton's words kind of push Bruce into the right direction and really make the intelligent mind feel less of an outcast and more of a misunderstood individual as his crisis eventually emerges into an external one.
The Avengers hits home video on September 25th.
