I gotta put it in the water!

Something I just noticed while rewatching the scene from Avengers for my essay was the fact that the second Coulson brings up the ice, Steve gets up and goes to the cockpit, to look out at the sea.

He’s standing at the cockpit, looking out over the water. In his mind, only 17 days ago, he was on the same mission: get the tesseract, save the world, stop a madman. Only 17 days ago, he was at those controls, tilting the nose of the plane down and heading into the water. Only 17 days ago, he thought he was succeeding.

Only two weeks ago, he woke up and found the world was saved. Only twenty-four hours ago, he found out that everything he did was for nothing: another madman, the same weapon, being called on to stop it.

“I hope I’m the man for the job,” he says, because he’s remembering the last time he went on the same mission, the last time he donned the uniform, the last time he sacrificed himself, seemingly for nothing.

He’s standing there, looking at the same view, as Phil squees on how awesome Captain America - not Steve Rogers - is. Coulson is basking in the hero. Steve, though, is standing there and remembering the moment he made the decision that cost him everything. And now, he has to do it all again.

Re: your tags. I'd really like Thor and Steve chatting about feelings though. Because they both have this common thread of a loved one being twisted and removed, and they also both do that thing where they try to keep things fairly light for the benefit of others. Beefy buddys okay. Staring into the sunset and having feelings near each other. Flexing stoically in the last rays of light.

I am 100000% about the friendship & camaraderie of Thor and Steve. Because when you think about it, they both have come from a place where they are considered heroes who have to walk a very straight line to properly represent their country, and they’ve both ended up in a very alien world that is far removed from what they know. And they’re both trying to figure out what their legacy really is about, and what their heroics really mean for their lives.

They should definitely go shopping together at the very least, right???

facts about other movies

I knew Group Hug I was told that at auditions

Okay but I know I’ve seen the spear burst through, and I could’ve sworn it was in the theater. Is it just on DVD? Granted, I usually flinch and look away because PHIIIIIL, so maybe I was just visualizing what I’d seen on DVD when I saw it again in the theaters for IM3 and Thor 2?

It was in the theatre down here. I read an article (probably this one) around the time that the DVD was coming out that mentioned that the scene had been changed on the DVD in SOME countries to make Coulson living through the experience more believable for AoS (although considering how flooded the tags and twitter were with “But isn’t Coulson dead?” I don’t think that was super effective). That article points out that there was no problem getting a rating in the 12A UK for the theatrical release (though, to be fair, maybe what we saw in the cinemas was a less extreme scene than in the original cut? Maybe the first cut was hella gory), buuuut I guess if each country rates the film independently then some places might have wanted the less-stabby version. Oh! And probably airline companies, too.
