Footage shown to audience during announcement (and discussed during our podcast):
Clip #1 – Tony Stark (iron man) and Steve Rogers (captain america) have an argument.
Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are outdoors, chopping wood old fashioned like, with axes.
Stark: Thor didn’t say where he was going for answers?
Rogers: Sometimes my teammates don’t tell me things. Kind of hoping Thor would be the exception.
Stark: Yeah, give him time. We don’t know what the Maximov kid showed him.
Rogers: I don’t know what she showed you! I just know it made you do something stupid.
Rogers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Pulled us apart like cotton candy.
Stark: Seems like you walked away alright…
Rogers: Is that a problem?
Stark: I don’t trust a guy without a dark side…call me old fashioned.
Rogers: Well let’s just say you haven’t seen it yet.
Stark: Banner and I were doing research!
Rogers: That would affect the team!
Stark: That would end the team! Isn’t that the mission?
Stark: Isn’t that the why we fight? So, we can end the fight? So we get to go home?!
Rogers grabs a huge log and splits it in half with his bare hands. Never needed the axe.
Rogers: Every time someone tries to win a war before it starts, innocent people die. Every time.
Fade to black.
