I’ve gone the record many times that I’m a big fan of Avengers: Age of Ultron and will do so again here: I am a big fan of Avengers: Age of Ultron. I like its weird energy and how jam-packed with stuff it is. I love the banter between these characters and I love watching their relationships put through the grinder. Marvel’s name may be above the title, but this is a Joss Whedon movie thorough and through – you come out of this shiny, colorful, pop culture extravaganza feeling a little roughed up. It’s his way.
Any yet, I’ll be the first to admit that it feels like there are pieces of the story missing and important beats excised. This is especially evident on repeat viewings, where you can really start to see unnecessary, studio-mandated scenes (like Thor’s dumb cave adventure) butting heads with the stuff that actually matters. A new deleted scene from the film has been revealed as part of that new Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 2 box set and it feels like the kind of thing that really should have been in the final cut… and not just because it’s a fight scene between Thor and Vision.
