With the DVD and Blu-ray release of ‘The Avengers‘ out, we finally get a preview of some of the extras that are included on those discs, like this alternate opening sequence with a tone much darker than the one used in the finished film.
The video below comes from Yahoo! Movies and features SHIELD agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) remembering the events in New York when Loki unleashed the power of the Tesseract. Hill is filing her official report and giving her version of the events, with a quick look at the aftermath in Manhattan. It’s certainly nothing like the opening of the finished product, which featured Loki breaking into SHIELD and using his staff to control Hawkeye to help him procure the magical cube.
