Captain America Frozen in Ice!!

Louis Leterrier teased Marvel fans before the release of "The Incredible Hulk" that we might catch a glimsp of Captain America in the film. Just how we saw Captain America's Sheild on Tony Stark's workbench in Iron Man, Leterrier said we'd see much more of the First Avenger in Hulk. Leterrier said, “Did you know that in Iron Man, Captain America’s shield can be found somewhere? Well in Hulk you might see Captain America Himself!” We'll the film released and no Captain. Leterrier changed his tune and said that the scene had been cut from the theatrical release. "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!," Leterrier said.

It seems that on the dvd release of "The Incredible Hulk" this scene is included and I've got the screen capture so you can see Captain America himself along with his shield frozen in ice. Some people may ask why is Captain frozen in ice? During the final days of Captain America's battles in WWII, he falls from a experimental drone plane into the North Atlantic Ocean and spent decades frozen in a block of ice in suspended animation. In the deleted scene from "The Incredible Hulk," the Hulk causes an avalanche uncovering Capatian America frozen in ice. This allows Marvel to do a true origin story of Captain America, all be it giving us a clear conclusion to "First Avenger: Captain America" but just how Captain can be included in "The Avengers" film. Anyways check out the screen capture below...

Incredible Hulk releases October 21st so you can check it out for yourself!
