As we previously reported, director Louis Leterrier said Captain America was to make a cameo appearance in the Hulk flick opening this weekend, but though the scene was filmed, and you will get to see it, it may not be in the theater.
So what’s the dealio? You’ll have to take the jump to find out for yourself.
In an interview with SOS Hollywood, Leterrier said, â€œThereâ€™s a point when Bruce Banner gives up on his quest for the cure and decide to kill himself. So he travels far North and reaches the Arctic Circle. You might have seen bits of it in some of the promos. The result was a very dark and strong scene, which Marvel, me and everyone elseâ€™s considered to be too hard to young audiences to take, so weâ€™ve cut it. Having that said, when Bruce arrives at his destination he meets up with Captain America! At some point this week, we will make it available on the internet â€“ but I cannot tell you where or when â€“ and the material will definitely be on the DVD.â€
Well that sucks. Not that we don’t get to see Captain America, but that Marvel decided to cut a bit from the film to make it less dark and more kid friendly. The Hulk already has a PG rating, so one potential Banner of the North sequence isn’t going to change the rating – especially if he doesn’t kill himself thanks to Captain America.
