Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige spoke to Blogomatic 3000 at the European premiere of The Avengers last night, where he was asked point blank about the supposed “bonus scene” that was shot in Los Angeles following the movie’s world premiere just over a week ago.
“I will tell you this: It was not a scene,” Feige told the blog. “It was not a scene. There’s little things. It’s been blown out of proportion. Which is fun, I like that things are blown out of proportion. Sometimes they’re true, sometimes they’re not.”
Despite his apparent denial, the fact that he said “It was not a scene,” and not “nothing was filmed” seems calculated to do nothing but throw fuel on the fire of the furious speculation about what may have been shot that night.
He may have attempted to douse that flame somewhat when, having been asked whether the film was truly finished or whether any changes might be made to the cut they’ve been exhibiting, Feige responded, “There is the potential that there will be one little change. People might not even notice it. It’s not a big thing.”
The Avengers opens next week in Europe and May 4 in the United States.
