Maybe I’m the only one, but while I used to love MCU movies, they feel really artificial and sterilized compared to other movies now. They’re very “paint by numbers”. You have a few “badass shots” like the turntable shot in Avengers and the Europe slow-motion in AOU, then for the story, it’s always the same “brooding villain who’s either been wronged or wants to change the world”, over and over again. It wasn’t too noticeable in phase one because there were less movies, but now it is.

I both adore, and absolutely despise, the deleted scene in Age of Ultron where Bruce and Natasha are in the safehouse. On one hand, it shows an extremely vulnerable side of Bruce, and it’s a fabulous little character study that explores just how deep-seated his fears and doubts are. On the other hand, it botches Natasha’s characterization, because she basically tells him to piss off once he declines her invitation to run away, with no apparent sympathy or respect about what he’s going through.
