With The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble as us Brits are supposed to call it) having already received its world premiere, you’d have thought that it would be way too late to shoot any more footage for the film, but if Robert Downey Jr. is to be believed, there’s just one more scene to be added that was only filmed last night!
/Film reports on this, saying Robert Downey Jr. let it slip at press conference for the film, saying yesterday that there was one more scene they were going to shoot once the junket was completed. The star added that he wasn’t kidding.
There’s been some uncertainty over whether this was actually happening, with Marvel President Kevin Fiege refusing to be drawn on whether it was true, director Joss Whedon apparently denying it, but Mark Ruffalo confirming it was happening, although he hadn’t been told what they were shooting.
As a result there’s been a lot of speculation, with most people assuming it will be a post-credits scene. While there is a mid-credit scene already in the movie, which apparently hints at possible Avenges sequels, there’s no post-credits sequence in the prints seen so far. That’s despite the fact these have become a bit of a theme in recent Marvel movies, hinting at where the interconnected universe is going next.
Rumours have speculated over whether it will be the introduction of a new character – some have said it will be Edgar Wright’s Ant Man, although that’s already been denied – while other say it may just be a scene hinting at the plot of the next Marvel movie, Iron Man 3. At the moment it’s all up in the air, and we’ll have to wait and see whether there is a new scene when the film opens on April 26th.
