AVENGERS Animatics Reveal Unused Iron Man & Loki Scenes; First Look At Wasp!

Besides Iron Man 3, Federico D'Alessandro, has uploaded animatics he created for Joss Whedon's mega-hit, The Avengers. Two of them feature unused intros for Iron Man, while another has a different version of Loki and Tony Stark's battle of wits.

Early in The Avengers, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and his group go about recruiting the superhero team. After Fury has enlisted Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) help in order to recover the Tesseract from Loki, the film cuts to our first look at Tony Stark/Iron Man. He is underwater attaching a new arc reactor to Stark Tower's power line. But, Federico D'Alessandro's first animatic below, shows a much different intro for Iron Man. In the early version Iron Man would've fought never-used supervillain with Man with no arms and no legs. At the end of each nub, is some sort of attachment device. As the clip plays out you will see the amputee attach robotic hands and legs, thus making him a supervillain.

In this second clip, Iron Man makes his introduction earlier in the film, just after Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has escaped with the cube, and his mind-controlled lackeys, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Professor Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård). In this version, Iron Man appears at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s secret underground government research facility. He is in hot pursuit of Loki, as the underground lab is crumbling all around him. Loki is seen trying to escape via a subway car. Watch the video below to see what happens.

The third animatic, involves Loki and Tony Stark's battle of wits at Stark Tower. But in this early version, the conversation is quite different, as Tony plays possum. He pretends to be under Loki's mind-altering influence, and pushes the charade too far. You can't fool the God of Mischief!

Also of note: the scene begins with our first taste of an evil Jarvis. This could be a clue as to how Joss Whedon will give birth to Ultron in the sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron

The last animatic, shows the scene in which the gateway is opened to the outer space location where the Chitauri’s army awaits. There a few slight differences than the theatrical version. With the most significant change, as pointed out by CBM's Guardian Angel, our first look an unused female superhero, Wasp (Janet van Dyne). She can see her at the 17-second mark.

Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig).

So you're telling me there was supposed to be MORE Iron Man in the film?

nailbiter111 - 8/24/2013, 8:38 PM

SuperCat - This is odd, I expected a lot more attention than this. Unused scenes from one of the most popular movies of all time? Guess people aren't done bitching about Affleck.
CaptainObvious - 8/24/2013, 8:39 PM
I'm glad that fight never made it into the film. It totally feels out of place with the main conflict of the movie.
Mego - 8/24/2013, 8:39 PM
I hate the way Marvel Films keeps having Tony get his butt kicked at his own game and in that scene it was by a total nobody.
dirtydanwojo - 8/24/2013, 8:41 PM
Not gonna lie - that third one would've been cool. The first two do however add a bit too much more Iron Man.

You've gotta remember, though; judging by the dates, these were made back in like 2010/2011, back when Marvel wasn't actually sure if any of the other Avengers could carry the film as well as Iron Man, so they were banking on him a bit more.
nailbiter111 - 8/24/2013, 8:42 PM
dirtydanwojo - good point
Minato - 8/24/2013, 8:43 PM
These are F**king awesome why haven’t I seen these before???
GuardianAngel - 8/24/2013, 8:43 PM
0:17 on the last video! It's Wasp!
tumpai - 8/24/2013, 8:46 PM
This was good stuff!
Ironnick - 8/24/2013, 8:46 PM
The last would animatic would have been cool as hell to see in the movie, but it would have made the film become "Ironman & The Avengers." The same goes for the other two.
NeoBaggins - 8/24/2013, 8:46 PM
Yet another Stark tech villain, but I must say that scene would have been awesome live-action.
Hulk2008 - 8/24/2013, 8:56 PM
huh photo: huh? huh.jpg
Jollem - 8/24/2013, 9:01 PM

nailbiter111 - 8/24/2013, 9:03 PM
GuardianAngel - Nice find! I'll add that.
DioFoRio - 8/24/2013, 9:11 PM
@guardian...ya beat me to it!
JediSuperGuy83 - 8/24/2013, 9:16 PM
Superman IS the Best Comicbook hero of All time also Man Of Steel is The BEST Superhero Moive of all time!!!!!!!!!!
DioFoRio - 8/24/2013, 9:19 PM
those were awesome nail!
Ramiel - 8/24/2013, 9:21 PM

KA2 sucked. Only Hit-Girl and The MFer were good in that movie.
DioFoRio - 8/24/2013, 9:21 PM
it just shows how much Joss had written and re-written during the course of making Avengers.Still my favorite cbm.
Chewtoy - 8/24/2013, 9:22 PM
These were some entertaining scenes... Awesome that we got to see them.
Humperdink - 8/24/2013, 9:24 PM
Okay that last one blew me away.
That was awesome.

Jollem - 8/24/2013, 9:25 PM
@SuperGuy83 - you are correct, sir
nailbiter111 - 8/24/2013, 9:35 PM
Maestro - yeah, I did get an Ultron vibe from JARVIS in that 3rd clip as well. Sure some other sites, when they get their hands on this, will focus on that aspect.
nailbiter111 - 8/24/2013, 9:43 PM
Maestro - Yup, Whedon and Tarantino are superb with dialogue.
Cayo - 8/24/2013, 10:13 PM
^ Man, that part really makes me think about Jarvis becoming Ultron if it were to ever stay in the final cut.
Darlene1974 - 8/24/2013, 10:17 PM
Well... they should've added wasp n antman rightfully... :(
Tymminator - 8/24/2013, 10:22 PM
Would have been awesome to see the Wasp in Avengers.
SnapperCarr - 8/24/2013, 10:22 PM
Would have been cool to see Wasp.
SnapperCarr - 8/24/2013, 10:24 PM
Tony Stark creating Ultron is PERFECT. It makes it more personal and it makes sense. Pym is a biochemist. Realistically he shouldn't have the knowledge or know how when it comes to building such a machine.
Grayson7954 - 8/24/2013, 10:26 PM
4th one should have been used for sure
superotherside - 8/24/2013, 10:30 PM
I liked the whole Cap and Iron Man were destined to fight. Civil War foreshadowing there. ;)

I also liked the evil Jarvis bit, IDK. I may be warming up to Tony creating Ultron. But I would like them to include Pym doing AT LEAST SOMETHING on the creation of Ultron. Perhaps make Ultron a new system Shield incorporates and Stark does too. They could name drop it was made by Pym. Then Tony decides to make Ultron robots as well to help them Catch SW and QS. Or something like that.

IDK. I just don't want it to totally go AGAINST the source material. Like Arrow, the Dark Archer was Tommy's father. Not a big change there. With Tony being Ultron's creator it's like having the Dark Archer be Ollie's Mom.

Grayson7954 - 8/24/2013, 10:33 PM
and that star wars reference in the third by stark was pretty funny not gonna lie
Ocelot - 8/24/2013, 10:35 PM
The intro to the final battle was done better in the fourth animatic than in the film, should have gone with that. The aliens in the same vid also resemble The Skrulls.

Dunno how they'll showcase the Wasps powers in live action without it looking overly stupid if the character is ever used in live action.
HulkbusterNYC - 8/24/2013, 10:48 PM
Holy Shit! Wut about Wasp being in the film? That shows they had different plans originally.. Definite peek at Jarvis/Ultron situation right there as well.. Very cool indeed.. Great find!
Ocelot - 8/24/2013, 10:50 PM
The chase scene with Iron Man and Loki was good and should have been used over the lackluster one that we got in the final product. Also liked the other intro where he's fighting terrorists and the supervillian, that was straight up IM1/Favreau, it would have been cool to see that scene in the film or another Iron Man film.
nikgrid - 8/24/2013, 11:03 PM
[frick] you Marvel why wasn't this on the Avengers Blu Ray?
thalidomide - 8/24/2013, 11:09 PM
nice find nail and nice article as well.
DravinClaw - 8/24/2013, 11:12 PM
I find it funny how they have hawkeye drawn in his old outfit.
Dandy - 8/24/2013, 11:20 PM

......Captain America actually had the most screen time in the film and would have had even more if a lot of his scenes hadn't been cut.

Iron Man barely had more screen time than Black Widow......So I'm not sure what you're trying to say with that first comment.

Here is the article for people who keep whining about how there was "too much Iron Man" in the film.


The characters were pretty well balanced...with exception to hawkeye.
Dandy - 8/24/2013, 11:22 PM

How was Stark the leader?!

The end battle was all Captain America calling the shots. Stark even says "call it Cap" and Rogers then leads the entire battle. Stark spends most of the Avengers picking fights with the other characters.
