Was it mentioned if this was a U.S. or a foreign disc?

No, he didn't know what Region it was. I'm hoping its just a UK thing but will be very frustrated if it was censored straight across the board.

  I'm in complete agreement with you.

Careful man, there's a beverage here!

I can't imagine why it would be changed from the theatrical cut. Maybe if there had been some kind of outcry about the violence in the movie but I never heard anything about people objecting to the violence in it. My guess is that it's either an alteration for another country and the US disc will have what was seen in US theaters or it's an outright lie (and even that seems pretty unlikely).

Loki is a trickster and a manipulator. His plan wasn't to get caputred just to get rescued. His plan was to get in close enough proximity to Banner to influence him, getting him to change into the Hulk, which would reek Havock with the power base of his adversaries. His plan worked pretty well. We learned that from Black Widow's discussion with Loki in the holding cell where she played him into giving that up. We'd been shown that Loki can basically "own" someone by touching their chest with his staff. Here, he was going for an more subtle influence, but influence none the less. Just before Banner changed, all of the "team" was getting pretty agitated with each other. And S.H.I.E.L.D.'s secret super weapons manufacturing plan came to light, which he also didn't like. Plus, that whole deal with him holding Loki's staff and not even being aware of it as they were arguing made it pretty clear that he was being influence by Loki. So while basically being in the middle of an argument with the other Heros and being influenced by Loki (jacked up aggression and mistrust) they are also physically attacked. -Loki sparks argument and mistrust amongst the whole team. -Loki specifically influences Banner (staff scene) to amplify his angst and mistrust. -Then his men physically attack. The purpose of the attack was two fold: Push Banner over the edge into a change, and rescue Loki. The combination of all that lead to Banner losing control and turning, and the agitation towards the others (S.H.I.E.L.D. in particular) directed the Hulk's actions as they played out. On the streets of New York, Banner chose to turn into the Hulk of his own free will. He was past the "Loki-jacked-up agitation" towards the other team members. And before he changed he had a clear purpose in his mind of what he wanted to do: fight the invading alien army. I agree that it could have been spelled out a little clearer, but it's still all there and does make sense.
some recent deleted footage from the blu ray has shown up online. they do explain more about it. try the loki and barton conversation. Jacob

I am looking forward to checking out the deleted scenes, but I think I'd like to wait for the Blu-ray. Someone at AVS said that Coulson edited scene is from a foreign disc. Let's hope the U.S. disc isn't victim to the same silliness.

MARVEL is promoting a theatrical re-release this Labor Day weekend.

https://www.facebook...70715601&type=1

Nothing about an extended cut is mentioned, which is too bad. But since the Blu-ray is already out in some other countries with just the theatrical cut this is no surprise.

I caved and watched a few of the deleted scenes that are online. The one with Banner and Harry Dean Stanton was a nice expansion on his conflict about who he is and who he should be. And it's an absolute shame that extended intro to Steve Rogers was cut. I can't for the life of me understand why this was left out. The only reason I can swallow is if they want to basically transplant that scene into The Winter Soldier (or re-film it in the context of that film).

Marvel's facebook post also reminds us "Don’t forget to stay through the credits…". I doubt they have anything new attached. They are probably saying that because lots of people probably missed the funny final schwarma scene.
