If it's crap ... We'll tell you
As 'The Avengers' was, at the risk of sounding hyperbolic, one of the greatest cinematic superhero experiences ever constructed, I'd hazard that many of us are eagerly awaiting the release of the Blu-ray. Like many of you, I'm chomping at the bit to see what extras and bonus features will be featured. Well, one such bonus feature has made its way online to give us a preview of what we can expect. A four-minute gag reel has been released showing a number of flubs and moments of levity on the set. I loooove that it begins to the tune of the song 'Eastbound and Down' from the film 'Smokey and the Bandit,' to which Robert Downey Jr. makes reference. 'Smokey and the Bandit' was one of the first films to feature a gag reel during the credits. I will warn you NOT to watch this reel if you haven't seen the movie as a couple of the outtakes occur during key scenes. Take a look at the reel below and let us know what you think.
'The Avengers' hits Blu-ray and DVD September 25th
