The Avengers Alternate Beginning: Well, That Was Definitely Another Way to Go With It

The Avengers Blu-ray is coming, and they’ve released this clip of the film’s alternate opening to whet the appetite of those action-starved Whedonites eager to set out on one more mission with Cap, Thor, Hulk, and the boyz. While this certainly would’ve been a darker way to kick things off, the clip’s not without a much-needed moment of levity; when Tony Stark wanders through the background of the last few frames, absently kicking at some smoldering rubble as he snacks on some delicious shawarma, that’s a moment of clever foreshadowing that would have paid off big time 140 exhilarating, harrowing minutes down the line.
