With a bonus material-packed Blu-ray of this summer’s blockbuster hit Captain America: The First Avenger on its way, Marvel have given us a sneak peak at one of the deleted scenes from the film to stir up anticipation ahead of its release in early December.

The short clip begins with one of The First Avenger’s more lighthearted moments – a USO show in which Cap (Chris Evans) is seen on stage with a lineup of beautiful, high-kicking dancers – before cutting to the Battle at Azzano, a fierce gunfight in which Dum Dum Dugan (Neal McDonough), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and their team find themselves confronted by a terrifying new HYDRA weapon that threatens to turn the tide of the war.

Unlike a lot of deleted scenes that pop up on DVD and Blu-ray this one is seriously good quality and virtually complete, with only the final visual effects shot of HYDRA’s weapon remaining unfinished. And while the sequence doesn’t add anything new to the film’s plot, it’s still an enjoyable glimpse at a minute and a half of cut footage from what I think we would all agree was one of this summer’s more enjoyable blockbusters.
