Captain America Cameo cut from Incredible Hulk

Eh, I kinda thought it was too much to be true when “Incredible Hulk” director Louis Leterrier was going around hinting (well, he actually did more than hint, he pretty much promised it) that the Star-Spangled Avenger would be showing up in a cameo in “Hulk”, especially with Tony Stark already in there as promised. Now it appears as if Leterrier has changed his tune and confirmed that Captain America won’t be in “Hulk”, and tells SOS Hollywood the following (via Cinemablend):

“There’s a point when Bruce Banner gives up on his quest for the cure and decide to kill himself. So he travels far North and reaches the Arctic Circle. You might have seen bits of it in some of the promos. The result was a very dark and strong scene, which Marvel, me and everyone else’s considered to be too hard to young audiences to take, so we’ve cut it. Having that said, when Bruce arrives at his destination he meets up with Captain America! At some point this week, we will make it available on the internet – but I cannot tell you where or when – and the material will definitely be on the DVD.”

So there you go, kids, from the mouth of the director himself.

My guess is that when Leterrier did that interview with G4 where he promised the cameo, he just didn’t clarify it enough; the host in that interview certainly didn’t do a very good job of digging, so I don’t really blame Leterrier too much, especially if Cap does end up on the DVD as an extra.

To sum up: Tony Stark in “The Incredible Hulk”, Captain America is as well, only not in the theatrical version, but on the DVD version, which will probably be hyped as a “R” or “hard PG-13” version of the movie or some such, considering all the scenes that are being rumored to have been cut from the film.
