Never Before Seen Footage From THE AVENGERS

Whenever a piece of Avengers news strikes the web, I feel compelled to admit that I wasn’t the film’s biggest fan. I know, that’s absolute sacrilege, especially coming from your golden fanboy scribe, but I just thought it was… meh. Besides Hulk’s face smashing antics and Robert Downey Jr.’s ever charming wit, the flick felt like Joss Whedon’s typical tv fare, except elevated by a $250 million budget and Herculean abdominal muscles.

BUT, even though the film will always seem like a semi-mediocre voyage into Marvel’s universe (can anything top the perfection of Iron Man 1?), I’ll never cease to love the spectacle of our favorite superheroes on the big screen.

Well, even though Marvel gifted us a few key deleted scenes in the Blu-Ray release of the blockbuster, we’ve found a few more lost on the internet. Check them out below:

Nothing like glorious, tender deleted scenes to eat away your lazy afternoons.

What do you guys think? Was Whedon wise to cut these out of the finished flick? Or do you think they belong?
