I am very grateful toward samspider3 for making this edit, it is well made and the cuts are very seamless.

Unfortunately most of the added stuff has been cut from the final movie for a reason, and I think that only 1 or 2 scenes should really have made it in because they detract from the main story, especially the waitress scenes, the added Loki scene, and Maria Hill replacing Nick Fury in the council scenes I'm not too fond of because 1. Nick Fury is a much more interesting character and is better written and 2. Samuel L. Jackson is a better actor than Cobie Smulders, at least in my opinion.

However, the editing is VERY well done, 10/10 from a technical standpoint this is a marvelous edit, really worth your time. Video/Audio quality is much better on the original but that's only because the deleted scenes are not available in HD (they're not on the blu-ray). The added scenes add a depth to some of the side characters and even some of the main ones, like Cap. His additional scenes really stand out as the best in my opinion.

Still, the action intercuts toward the end detract from the story so I don't think this will replace my Avengers copy for this movie seeing as most of it is really superfluous. I do think every MCU fan should watch this at least once though, it's well worth it.

Thanks again samspider3 for making this!

Once again Sampspider brings some excellent deleted scenes back into the place where they should have been in the first place. The edit is totally seamless (which proves how skilled he is) and the added scenes round the film without making it longer or breaking the pace at all.
A must watch for the MCU fans.

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!!

I absolutely loved this edit, I think the film has a better flow with the alternate opening and closing scenes with Maria Hill. Sam has restored just about as much as he physically could without compromising the use of unfinished scenes and the result is fantastic. Ashley Johnson's waitress has a fair bit more screen time now though it does seem a little out of place given she is quiet for the majority of it, but I love Ashley Johnson and the news interview at the end lets Cap'n have a nice bit of recognition.

if my enjoyment of the theatrical cut was 8/10 this definitely bumps it up to a 9.5

I loved this edit. The deleted material was put back in seamlessly. If I hadn't seen the theatrical cut way too many times I would not have known what was added. I watched this with my wife and kid and they had no idea this was a fan edit. Great job all around.
