Last week, during the press day after the world premiere of Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’, Robert Downey Jr. spilled the beans on an extra scene that the cast was shooting after the press conference. Despite comments denying such a scene from director Joss Whedon and Head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige, Mark Ruffalo also confirmed that a scene was being shot that day. However, neither actor shared what this alleged scene was for. Most were speculating that it was another post-credits scene for the movie, but no one outside that set knew for sure.
Today, one of the men quick to deny the existence of this scene, Kevin Feige, came clean and finally admitted that it happened and even gave us a slightly better idea of what was shot. According to /Film, Feige said this at the European premiere of ‘The Avengers’:
“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 [to the movie]. People might not even notice it. It’s not a big thing.”
I call shenanigans. The film is already locked and has been for quite some time. The only place that I can see this scene fitting in is at the very end of the credits. Or on the DVD release as a super secret bonus feature that’ll set up for ‘Iron Man 3’ or something. Whatever it is, we’ll find out if it’s used or not once the film opens wide on May 4th.
What do you think, readers? Do you think Feige is telling the truth? Do you have some speculation as to what the scene is? Share with the class below?
