I watched the extended edition of the first Avengers movie and thought the narrative didn't really work.
For this one, it's different. I must first say that the scenes do not change the movie that much, but the little things do add up for a more cohesive movie. The extra character development is welcomed.
I must say that, as usual, samspider seamlessly edits in the new material, and apart from the visible green screen in a Maria Hill scene, and the occasional shaky quality vs the Blu-Ray, it's really really hard to tell when or where it was edited.
As for the movie itself, 6 minutes of screen-time does make a difference, but it's not THAT important. The movie is still good (I am one of those who believe the theatrical is a good movie, very enjoyable), and having more scenes to watch is just better all around.
Thanks for making this samspider, and this should be the definitive version to watch. Any thoughts about filling the green screen scenes with something? It would improve this edit and make it an absolute must-watch in my opinion. Still, great work, thanks!
Samspider3 clears up the whole "Thor Thing", clarify's the plot, and makes a overall good Marvel movie great.
This is the way it should have been in the theater, or at least, the director's cut that Whedon killed. Like flamino below, the Cap/Maria screen was a bit distracting, but upon a second viewing, I was more focused on the dialogue and completely lost the background, so it couldn't have been that big a deal.
Seriously, watch this one, and put your bluray away.
Yes to what everyone said! This edit seamlessly (save for one scene that contains green screen, but it's way in the background and isn't distracting at all) adds so much to this movie with simple 6 minutes! None of those minutes contain any sort of action that I can remember though, just character development, and that is VERY welcome! My preferred version of watching this flick now.
I absolutely adore the theatrical cut of Avengers: Age of Ultron. I think it's a genuinely fantastic film and one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's finest and most emotionally engaging installments, from its breathtaking action to its endearing character dynamics. What this fan-edit manages to add to the experience in terms of character development and story is nothing short of fantastic. Previously deleted material is integrated into the film near-flawlessly and helps strengthen the characters. It also really benefits the pacing. Things feel less rushed and the events flow much more smoothly as a result. Even when scenes enter lower quality than the rest of the picture and there's one instance of noticeable green-screen, the acting and dialogue are so good that it never takes away from the experience. I really loved this.
