Deleted Age of Ultron scene better explains what Thor was doing in that cave

09.28.2015

So what the hell was Thor doing in that cave during AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

I know there are some that would argue it was a convenient time for Chris Hemsworth to take his shirt off for a certain segment of the fandom, given that Thor didn't really have much else to do in the film. But Thor was supposed to have something a little crisper as it pertains to his knowledge of the Infinity Stones and how to stop Ultron. (That is what happened in the film, right? Sorry, I was already thinking about CIVIL WAR before it was over.)

Unfortunately, for Thor, Joss Whedon had to make some cuts in order to get the running time under control, so we didn't wind up with a four hours of set-up for the next Phase. Two-and-a-half was somehow more palatable. And that left a reworked Thor scene in the cave and the pool that dealt more with visions that werent well explained, as opposed to the God of Thunder being possessed by the Norn and a better blueprint laid out for just what in the hell was going on.

The original scene has now surfaced though, in deleted fashion, giving us a better understand of Thor's initial purpose, and while it tonally doesn't match up with the rest of AGE OF ULTRON, it certainly would have made things much clearer for the audience to grasp.

That was an awful scene from an awful movie. Age of Ultron was almost as bad as Iron Man 2 and Thor 2.

The reason it might've been cut was Joss Whedon didn't shoot any of it. I've yet to see The Age of Ultron, but this scene got a lot of press for being an example of the Marvel brain trust trying to set up events for future movies, and one reason Whedon might've felt disillusioned with his overlords.

That was awful and super cheesey. No wonder it got cut.

Marvel continues it's trend of crappy DVD releases.....

Once again the choices are a 3D BR & BR & digital download (that usually can't be downloaded to more than one computer or copied, so you better hope your computer never has to be replaced) with shitty DVD extras, or a regular DVD with no extras at all.

I don't know why I can get several options from every release from every company except Marvel, who insists me getting a 3D BR (that very few people have) and no hard copy of the DVD. At least if they're going to offer these shitty options

At least if they're going to offer these shitty options they should have the BR stuffed with extras to make it truly interesting. I've just gotten the last 4 Marvel releases by renting from Redbox for $1 and copying the DVD (much easier and cheaper). Not because I don't want to support Marvel, but because they're morons when it comes to my options for purchase.

It's too bad this was cut. Echoing everyone else's comments from before, it would have given made the storyline more coherent and the film with a little more depth (at least for Thor).

It's unfortunate because I still don't think we've seen the best of Thor yet. I loved how he was utilized in the first Thor and especially the first Avengers film, but I feel like this their entry of his could be as advantage to really showcase how powerful of a superhero he is and/or can become.

Avengers Assembled cut out some pretty neat Cap America scenes that would have given him a far more meaningful role in that movie - they really were top scenes on par with the great stuff we eventually got to see in Winter Soldier. I hope Thor has similar meaningful cut scenes in from Age of Ultron...though the downside of that is I'll be left gutted that they weren't included in the final cut.

Yeah. Cap is my favorite character and would have loved to have seen the deleted scenes featuring him transition to the final cut instead of making him the clueless guy during the conversations they all had with one another (ie Flying monkeys scene).

ALL OF THEM...

At least all the VERY FEW ONES that are in the bonus from the BR should have been in the film. They explained some major weak points of the film... And we all know their were many more, that we'll never see !
Overall, as usual with most MCU BR, the supplemental materials are below average ! A shame, really.
And, if the Studio forced Whedon to cut those important parts, you can easily guess why he told Marvel to go fuck themselves.

Then why was it deleted in the first place?I swear this movie was edited very weird, especially for such a big movie. Whedon should have gotten final cut. I'll be watching again once I buy it on blu-ray friday, maybe a 2nd viewing will change my attitude of what I thought ws a mediocre movie.

Still pissed we didn't get the scene with the lady from Wakanda in the deleted scenes, have to say most of the deleted scenes aren't that great. I really do hope Thor comes into his own in the next few films especially Ragnarok. I love the first Thor, the second is pants and I just feel he's underused in the Avengers - I mean his is the only legitimate God or Super person and yet they always seem to hold him back. I also think Hemsworth is a great actor and the embodiment of Thor, I hope in

The lady wasn't from Wakanda. She was part of the Norn (possibly an embodiment of Hel). But they've said repeatedly that the woman in the trailer had nothing to do with Wakanda.

This should have been in the movie. Your average movie audience has no idea wtf is going on in regards to the 6 infinity gems. Even after The collector explained it, alot of non comic fans but mcu fans have no idea what they are or if they are even relevant etc.

Agreed - there was other bits they could have trimmed out to fit this in

Haha there's a lot of shade being thrown at Age of Ultron being a set-up for future movies, but the movie actually would've been better off with MORE scenes like this in order to let things breathe a bit more - perhaps another 10-15 minutes of runtime. Whedon edited and cut out so much necessary material (and I think this scene is necessary exposition), the theatrical cut of the movie can't help but feel overstuffed and bloated.

I'm looking forward to watching a fan-edit that inserts each

I'm looking forward to watching a fan-edit that inserts each deleted scene into the narrative (or maybe a director's cut or extended edition? Pretty please?) and seeing if that improves the final product.
