Only the paint on Captain America's shield is scratched in the film. In the comics, his shield is made of an adamantium and vibranium alloy, with a third mystery catalyst, and can only be damaged by beings who possess nearly ultimate power, such as Molecule Man, Rune King, Thor, or Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet. The shield is otherwise impervious. See more »
(at around 49 mins) When Thor attacks Captain America and says "You want me to put my hammer down?" Captain America raises his shield, but when the angle changes it's lowered and he's raising it again. See more »

The scene where Loki stabs Agent Coulson exists in two versions. The original version shows the weapon piercing Coulson's body, the cut version does not. In various territories (Germany, Switzerland, Russia, United Kingdom and Ireland), the cut scene was used for the DVD release (why this was done i.e. for the German release is unknown, since it would not have changed the rating).

Now I'm not a huge fan of superhero flicks, so maybe there's something I'm missing here. But walking out of the theater, all I felt was that I had seen 2.5 hours of nothing but action and drama. Maybe that's its purpose? Maybe it's just not my cup of tea? For whatever reason, I was not invested. This is hardly an interesting or exciting film, and I see no reason for the rave reviews or exceptional $$ it is making.
I suppose it has something to do with being a "fan"; as I said earlier, I am in no way a "fan" of hero movies but this one got such good reviews that I had to check it out. I was disappointed because, surprise surprise, it felt EXACTLY like every other superhero movie that had ever been made. Even more so since its a combination of all of the previous heroes into one film. So really, it's not original, or different, or exciting, or moving, or anything. It just IS.
