Ridiculous «The Avengers» only defused after 10 years on TV — cinema news

Disney and its affiliates

In 2012, Marvel’s The Avengers was released in cinemas worldwide. The Marvel blockbuster came on pay TV that same year, and in 2014 it ran on RTL for the very first time on free TV. Since then, «The Avengers» has often been shown on television — again and again on RTL, later also on ProSieben and VOX. It’s running there again today: VOX will show «The Avengers» on April 7 at 8:15 p.m., there will be a repeat on April 8 at 10:15 p.m. As with all previous pay and free TV broadcasts in the past ten years since 2012, these two will also be unnecessarily toned down.

Coulson’s death: Less brutal in Germany

The scene in question takes place after around 84 minutes in «The Avengers». Agent Phil Coulson ( Clark Gregg ) threatens villain Loki ( Tom Hiddleston ) with a giant cannon. But the master of deception has outwitted him. Before Coulson there is only an illusion. The real Loki is behind the agent — stabbing him from behind with his spear.

In the original version, you can see the tip of the lance sticking out of Coulson’s chest at this point:

Marvel Studios The Original Version: Loki’s lance sticks out of Coulson’s chest.

But Disney and Marvel defused that scene in different regions of the world back then. In a revised version (also used in Germany), the lance tip circled in red in our picture is missing without replacement. It makes Coulson’s death a little less brutal.

In the following YouTube video you can watch the entire death scene in the defused version, i.e. without the lance tip:

There was never a comprehensible reason for the defusing. At least in Germany it was not a requirement for, for example, a lower age rating. For a long time, however, there was only this defused version in this country.

«The Avengers»: Unchanged on Disney+ and Ultra HD Blu-ray

In the meantime, the original version has also been published in Germany. If you watch the MCU blockbuster on Disney +, you get the original version with a lance tip. If you get or own the Ultra HD Blu-ray release released in 2018, you will also find the unaltered original version on the Ultra HD Blu-ray itself – but be careful: the normal Blu-ray that comes with it is the defused version again to find.

Because this is still used: on DVD, on Blu-ray and with every TV broadcast again and again. That’s how it was in 2021, when «The Avengers» only ran on ProSieben at the beginning of the year and then again on VOX in the summer. And that’s probably how it will be tonight at 8:15 p.m. and the repeat on April 8 at 10:15 p.m.

There is still no reason to defuse the scene. But it’s still the TV version that’s circulating, and nobody seems to have bothered to create a new one.
