Avengers Secret Scene?
That’s right– according to Downey Jr., they’re shooting another scene from The Avengers tonight, and “I’m not joking.” He got the final word at the press conference, so there was no time to get clarification or figure out what on earth kind of scene they could be shooting for a movie that opens in three weeks.
“We’re shooting a scene tonight. I’m not sure exactly where it’s gonna go. All I know is that someone came in with the costume and said, ‘Here’s some wardrobe. We don’t know where you’re going to be or what you’re doing.’ ” Ruffalo said. We asked if it will be in the “The Avengers” when it hits theaters Ruffalo added, “Yeah. So I’m like, ‘All right, when are we doing that?’ Today after we’re done.”
Assuming that this isn’t just RDJ being…well, RDJ, the most likely scenarios would be that A) They are filming a new post-credits “Button Scene” meant to foreshadow the next big arc in the Marvel Movie Universe. B) That there is some kind of scene in the movie itself that they wanted to keep under wraps (possibly a fan-stirring cameo of some sort?). If fans remember correctly, two Marvel lead-in films – The Incredible Hulk and Captain America - had secret “button” scenes featuring some kind of juicy surprise. The problem in both cases was that Internet hounds were onto the surprise way before those respective films (and Thor, and Iron Man 1&2) reached theaters.
Marvel may have learned from past mistakes – trusting us shifty blogger types – and could have kept this secret scene out of the premiere screening, where it would have absolutely been blasted all over the Internet. As things stand, we’ll let you guys discuss and debate what this extra scene could be.
