The Avengers - No extended cut on DVD/Blu-ray
Iron Man (1+2), The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America. All these films contained more or less extensive hints at the secret organisation S.H.I.E.L.D. that will finally unite the heroes under one banner: The Avengers.
After every character got his own playground over the last years, people are now ready to see them teaming-up. The ensemble project got director Joss Whedon (founder of famous TV series such as Buffy, Angel or Firefly) attached to it and production wrapped a while ago. With the theatrical release in sight, Whedon talked with Collider about the film in general and the film version in detail. He explained that he considers the theatrical cut being his director's cut and rejects the possibility of an extended version for DVD/Blu-ray later on. Although his first cut clocked in at approx. 3 hours, he shortened it to 2h 15m and is very satisfied with that. The scenes he took out were nice for him but not essential for the film.
Here's what he had to say in his own words:
There's still hope that the majority of the unused material could end up in the bonus section of the home video releases. If Whedon liked them, fans will surely want to check them out.
The Avengers opens in US cinemas on May 4th, 2012.
