Writer and director Joss Whedon supposedly had a detailed backstory for Hawkeye written up, but was unable to even reference any of it due to time constraints. During the early planning stages, Hawkeye was envisioned to be depicted as a circus performer, trained by supervillains, who manipulate him into fighting the team, essentially a modernized version of his 616 origin story. At another point, he was planned to debut in Iron Man 2 (2010) as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., who works closely with Natasha Romanov, a.k.a. Black Widow, and Nick Fury. See more »
(at around 39 mins) The German police cars shown in the Stuttgart-scene have yellow light bars. In reality all German emergency vehicles have blue flashing lights. Yellow flashing lights are generally used as a warning signal, i.e. for roadside assistance, construction machinery or garbage trucks. 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).

The biggest step ahead in this genre! A MASTERPIECE!
The movie that changed the standards of a superhero movie. Until the release of The Avengers, going too big in a movie like that was a dream that no one expected to come true, It was too much of a risk with high possibility of failure. That day Marvel exceeded every expectation by realeasing the hugest step ahead in this genre by teaming up it's heroes in a great huge blockbuster movie. The result was triumphant, as a movie not only impresses with long and amazing fight scenes but it does a great job evolving each one of the character that have a major role in just 2 and a half hours. This days we take as granted every huge movie with team ups, huge impact on the world e.t.c. This movie was the first one who took a huge risk like that, a recipe that had never succeded before and did the impossible of having so many unique and important character and giving everyone the needed time to evolve, a true masterpiece movie. This is the first time we get a good view on Scarlet Johanson's Black Widow, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, and I think that all of them did a perfect job on representing the ideals of these roles. The only drawback I can imagine is that this movie hasn't aged perfectly, costumes are pretty cartoonish for a live-action film and some dialogue is somewhat cheesy but those are just tiny details in a pile of awesomeness. This movie is a must-watch gem and it will entertain everyone to the highest possible level.
