The Avengers flood gates are about to bust wide open with the film opening overseas next week and in the U.S. the week after. Our coverage of the film is about to start too, including a full review, exclusive interviews with star Chris Hemsworth, director Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige.
Speaking of the latter, the president of Marvel Studios, so quick to deny that an additional scene from the film was being shot last week, has finally admitted it happened and even given a better idea of what was shot. Read his quote after the jump.
I will tell you this: It was not a scene. It was not a scene. There’s little things. It’s been blown out of proportion. Which is fun, I like that things are blown out of proportion. Sometimes they’re true sometimes they’re not.
There is the potential that there will be one little change. People might not even notice it. It’s not a big thing.
The second Robert Downey Jr. opened his mouth at last week, speculation began running rampant. “They were filming a scene for Iron Man 3, Thor 2, a new credits tease was being added or a bonus feature on the Blu-ray.” One thing no one really thought about was something being changed within the film.
And I don’t buy it. The film is done. Locked. Music cues and color timing all perfectly put in place. The only place director Joss Whedon could easily add something to this movie, which premiered in Los Angeles last week and London Thursday, is the very end of the credits.
Or will the scene just be trashed as Feige suggested?
I guess we’ll all find out May 4, and some of us over seas sooner. Do you think Feige is telling the truth?
