So What's Going On With This Extra 'Avengers' Scene, Kevin Feige?

Kevin Feige

Okay, what the heck is going on? There's something here, and fans keep trying to dig it up. Last week at the press conferences for Marvel's The Avengers after its world premiere, Robert Downey Jr. ended the conference by stating: "We are shooting one more scene tonight. Not kidding." Joss Whedon later denied it, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige dodged answering a question about it in an interview, then Mark Ruffalo confirmed they were actually shooting that very night. But what is it? Another end tag, a last minute reshoot, nothing at all? Feige claims it's the latter. He updated another blogger from the London premiere.

I was informed from twitter that Blogomatic3000 caught up with Kevin Feige on the red carpet and asked him, once again, about the extra Avengers scene shot just last week, after the world premiere. It's obvious he doesn't like talking about it, and doesn't like anyone bringing it up at all. "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," he told them. Blown out of proportion? So Downey Jr. drops a big tease that they're shooting - was he upset at something, or just wanted to mess with press? Everyone then denies it, turns out it's actually kind of true, but then it's just nothing, not even a scene. So what is it? And will it even change anything in The Avengers anyway?

"There is the potential that there will be one little change. People might not even notice it. It's not a big thing."

The plot thickens. It's not a scene, but it will potentially make a change to the film? What was so pressing that they had to get the entire team of The Avengers actors together, the night after the world premiere, to shoot one bit of footage that we "might not even notice"? Did someone catch a big error, or a major legal problem, while watching the movie at the world premiere? Are they hiding more Easter eggs, or just fixing a scene? No one knows, or no one is telling anyone, and it's obvious Feige just wants us to forget. "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." But which is it, Mr. Feige? Or will we have to wait until May 4th to find out?

I'm not really sure what to make of this. Sure, we're definitely just chasing a carrot now that Robert Downey left dangling for us, and having a bit of fun while at it, but maybe there is a slight change? Only those who saw the world premiere would notice, and that's if they can remember all the details after one viewing. I'm curious to hear the story behind this, even if it is nothing, I'm intrigued. It seems like something. But is it?

  • Oooh, what intrigue.  Hopefully they'll let the cat out of the bag once the film is released.  It will be interesting to find out exactly what they did and why.

     We have over 2 hours worth of scenes in the movie already, I don't think anybody cares.
  • As long as they do not remove anything from the film, I'm good. It was amazing as it was. Don't change it! Especially if it's a last minute rushed change considering the movie is being released starting next week, don't do it!
  • filmtogo
    Perhaps they filmed a scene for one of the next films as after credit sequence. think about an 'Ant-Man'-film with the assembled Avengers ask him to join after his stand-alone debut. Or something like that.
  • Andrew
    My guess is they could potentially just want more press for the movie.
  • Could be a mention of The Amazing Spiderman...

    I like the way it is. I was hoping for a scene after the credits but you get some much in the 2 and a half hours that it doesn't really matter if there is or not.

    They'll have to hurry. Its released on Thursday here in the UK!
    • Logan
      All international copies are done and shipped. You will not be getting the new scene, it is only for domestic release.
  • Logan
    This is from a reliable source guys. The international version of the movie has a different scene after the credits from the domestic release. We get the new scene. I'm not going to spoil them since I know what both are, but we got screwed. The international scene shows a major villain from the Marvel universe. I asked my source if there was a possibility of getting both and I got a no answer. This sucks!!!  
  • "one little change. People might not even notice it. It's not a big thing." ITS ANT MAN.
    • Logan
      Nope, not Ant Man.
  • Leeseymours1984
    If its a meeting between the Avengers and as they leave if we see Stark taking a strand of THOR's hair then we know where they wanna go..... CIVIL WAR
    • Logan
      Your way off.
  • Akirakorn
    Told you guys it's a tidbit for the MTV movie awards (just my shot in the dark) and I'm sticking to my imaginary guns. Tho it sounds like a new "teaser" scene for the ending credits to mesh with future sequels. Probably a development change on Iron Man 3 or something. I'd be sad if it was anything with the new Spidey.

    They're shooting a scene with Batman because when they watched it they realised there wasn't enough dark knight in it
