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.
Hey guys, I don’t often reblog old art but let’s try an experiment where we reblog Sailor Avengers directly from me instead of other sources! All my love (also feel free to delete this last sentence upon reblog if you wish.)
