    Was that the only Stan scene, or was there another?

    There’s a scene with Stan near the end of the released film where various citizens are being interviewed following the Avengers saving New York City.

    This deleted scene was excellent. It says so much about Steve and how he is torn between the world he knows and the world in which he must now live. I wish they had left it in.

    I blame RDJ for being too charismatic, causing Tony Stark to get more out-of-action character time. ;-)

    “Buy some time, people! Buy some time!”
    Subtle but powerful to the context of this scene.

    This might have disrupted the pacing of the movie, but I still would have loved to see it in the movie.

    It was a very nice scene. However, would they have cleaned up the special effects? Some of the scenes in the newsreel had a clear feel that Cap was just pasted into them a la Forrest Gump.

    Also, I don’t really remember such blatant product placement in the movie – when the scene cut from Steve in his room to outdoors, I thought for a second that he was in a cellphone store buying a burner phone to call Peggy, because of the tight focus on the prepaid cellphone company. When the camera zoomed out to show the Acura, that was a bit much, with the shot lingering too long on the vehicle. I think it would have been jarring to see that in the theater. Maybe just that transition should have been cut, retaining the rest of the scene.

    Showing Steve sketching is a nice reminder of his artistic talents and the cover he employed for a while of being a graphic artist. Overall nice scene, and could have been useful in the movie.
