Have you been having a good day today?
Has it been nice? Was your commute good? See a hot person? Get some free food?
I’m about to make your day hurt very badly. I apologize for that because these feels I am about to bring you are painful.
Pietro Maximoff had a grand total of like ten lines in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Yet when he died at the end of the movie, it hurt. It sucked to see this character who was snarky, charming, and becoming a hero in his own right dead.
Now I think Pietro is going to stay dead (but really who knows?), which sucks because I liked Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the role. Just as I like Evan Peters in the role.
Honestly, I would not be surprised if Pietro is staying dead due to licensing reasons or something. It sucks, but it’s the business.
Even though the Avengers: Age of Ultron DVD/Blu-ray is out, it doesn’t mean we cannot see more deleted goodies. This time it focuses on the two Sokovian twins we all love.
Digital Spy found the scene (split into two parts), and I did not see this coming.
Keep a close eye on the characters in the scene though. You’ll understand the whole heartbreaking thing in a moment.
Recognize the woman yet?
Maybe she’ll become familiar in a moment.
That is the child that Hawkeye went back to save, which leads to Pietro sacrificing his life to save the pair.
Oh poor Pietro. You steal a dress for a girl, and save her brother’s life and then you die and a million fangirls scream out “WHY?!” even though you only had like ten lines.
Also notice how Wanda says something about Pietro getting shot right before the boy runs into frame?
That, my friends, is called “planting” and the “payoff” is what happens when the boy comes into the picture later in the film.
I also kind of hate that this scene was cut because it gave some really nice development for the twins and their relationship.
Well we can’t have everything I suppose.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
