Captain America, the costumed symbol of liberty during Word War II, has been found — thanks to global warming, and a sharp-eyed reviewer.
But when the Sentinel of Liberty failed to materialize in the theatrical release, legions of fans — well, maybe not legions — cried foul. Then came word that the original opening scene, which features Bruce Banner in the arctic, ended up on the cutting-room floor, but will be restored on the DVD.
Believe it or not, that’s not simply a ruse to sell more discs. As we reported on Thursday, the scene is there, but is Captain America? Short answer: Yes. But you already knew that.
At Film School Rejects, Cole Abaius spots the body of Steve Rogers and the telltale shield near the end of the alternate opening, “as an avalanche crashes down toward the camera.” Rope of Silicon confirms the discovery.
No word yet on the whereabouts of a certain James “Bucky” Barnes. The Avengers have been dispatched to investigate.
