and a few I didn't (starting the film with Maria's testimony and bookending it with a cheap out)
I'm definitely glad that they nixed Maria Hill's opening scene because I felt that it oversold the events of the story and would have set the wrong tone for the movie. Based on her telling of it, I would have expected a somber tragedy to follow, not the lighthearted and fun film that we actually saw.
Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split. - Robert E. Howard
