I was fortunate enough to get a copy of this from the editor.

First off, let me preface this by stating that I am a huge fan of the MCU, and really admire the effort that Marvel has expended to create a cohesive universe for their characters. That said, Avengers is not one of my favorite films in the series.

We have this apparently huge secret organization essentially running the planet, and no one knows about it--but that's acceptable, and there's no fallout from the events in NY. I had a difficult time swallowing that.

What this edit does is add in the deleted scenes, and bring back something much closer to Whedon's original vision of the film. He humanizes the characters, and gives SHIELD some pushback against the "World Council" through the Maria Hill debrief, which now frames the film, and also makes the events of the film, at least in my opinion, more believable.

The edits are, to my eyes, seamless. The film is richer with the addition of the scenes, and makes the story, especially the Steve Rogers story, much deeper.

This will be the version I choose to watch going forward. Great job!!
