It will never cease to amaze that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has enjoyed a critical and commercial winning streak of almost two-dozen films without anything close to a major miss.
A big reason for the success is clearly the involvement of mega-producer Kevin Feige, who has ensured a consistent style and tonality across the franchise, as well as filmmakers who acutely understand what audiences want.
And with that in mind, even the most modest of MCU movies has left plenty of material on the cutting room floor, much of which has since surfaced on home video releases and more recently on Disney+.
Though almost all of the excised content makes for interesting viewing, and there are certainly many scenes good enough to merit their inclusion in the theatrical release, the overwhelming majority were ultimately sensible omissions.
Case in point, these 10 deleted scenes represent the most sensibly cut material in the entire MCU, from "comedy" scenes that fell totally flat, to subplots that wasted time, and even grandstanding emotional moments that over-egged the dramatic pudding...
