Watch: An ‘Avengers’ Deleted Scene with Stan Lee Cameo

Since its release in April (May in the U.S.), The Avengers has become the highest grossing film not directed by James Cameron. The film featured a whole bunch of people in capes and colorful outfits getting together to fight aliens in Manhattan. With so many popular characters, and some new ones introduced, Joss Whedon had a lot on his plate, and the film did in fact manage to strike a balance that gave us enough sense of the character while the action progressed.

But some scenes couldn’t make the cut in the 143 minute film. Those scenes likely won’t be revealed until the films September 25 Blu-ray release, but one has already made its way onto the web.

In it, we learn more about Steve Rogers, the Übermensch behind Captain America. While in the film most of his development involved his disdain for Iron Man’s ostentations, as well as his inability to grasp modern society, this clip shows his nostalgia for the past and sadness that all his colleagues are dead—that is, except his love interest Peggy Carter from Captain America: the First Avenger. Later, Stan Lee offers some sagely advice, which would have made for his second cameo in the film, after he remarks with disbelief about superheroes being in New York City.
