You know, I would have liked The Avengers (2012) even more if this scene had been in it.
This is exactly the sort of Steve Rogers scene I wanted. It would have been a nice counterbalance to the hammy Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) moments early in the film. And it would have provided a more rounded portrait of Cap that would have helped make him look like a more vital member of the team later in the film.
I will buy the DVD just to get this scene and the other deleted scenes, I'm sure.
