‘Avengers’! The Cap & Peggy Reunion That Could Have Been, 24 New Hi-Res Images, and What’s The New Scene?
It’s hard to believe they could possibly be filming more for The Avengers with their release date only three weeks away, but it’s been confirmed that yes, everyone got together after the premiere to shoot a new scene. What they filmed is still a complete and utter mystery but it’s rumored to show during the credits. Guess we’ll have until it releases May 4th to know for sure. What do you think the scene could have been?
Something that didn’t get filmed and was initially planned was a reunion between Captain America and his sweetheart from the past, Peggy Carter in the present day. The idea being Carter would will still be alive in 2012 so why wouldn’t Cap seek her out. Sadly, this scene never happened because, according to Joss Whedon in The New York Times, it slowed down the action-packed film.
One of the best scenes that I wrote was the beautiful and poignant scene between Steve and Peggy [Carter] that takes place in the present. And I was the one who was like, Guys, we need to lose this. It was killing the rhythm of the thing. And we did have a lot of Cap, because he really was the ‘in’ for me. I really do feel a sense of loss about what’s happening in our culture, loss of the idea of community, loss of health care and welfare and all sorts of things. I was spending a lot of time having him say it, and then I cut that.
I’m sad they didn’t shoot it, but I’m not convinced we won’t ever see it. This scene sounds like perfect material for Captain America 2, and since we know it’s happening I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before Cap and Peggy meet again. But, bittersweet it will be.
On a lighter note, who wants to see 24 kick ass, hi-res, beautiful photos from The Avengers? I know, who doesn’t? Feast your eyes on these,
