A story on how the second post credit scene came about:
http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/05/04/backstory-avengers-secret/?fb_ref=ewcontent&fb_source=home_multiline
Spoiler:
Assembled! The (spoilerish) backstory behind the after-credits scene in ‘The Avengers’ —EXCLUSIVE By Anthony Breznican

Now that The Avengers is in theaters and moviegoers are discovering the secret new scene the cast shot just three weeks ago, it’s time for EW to tell you what we know.

While EW confirmed that, yes, a new scene was being created, we didn’t share everything we knew because, well, … who wants to hear the punchline to a joke before the setup? Now that the movie has opened, and people are discovering the scene for themselves, we can exclusively reveal its backstory.

Read on, but only if you’ve already sat through The Avengers until the end of the credits (or if you’re a joyless, spoiler-craving churl.)

In true Scooby-Doo fashion, the filmmakers would have gotten away with this scheme if it hadn’t been for that meddling Robert Downey Jr., who revealed at an April 12 press conference that the superhero actors were reuniting that very night to film one last bit of footage for the movie.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige went into “Oh, that wisecracking, Robert” denial mode, and writer-director Joss Whedon did his best John Ehrlichman-during-Watergate effort to keep it under wraps, since any detail from what they were doing could ruin the fun of it.

Many who had seen The Avengers just days earlier couldn’t fathom the concept: Marvel was shooting a new scene two days after the Hollywood premiere? Wha ….?

Rumors that it was a coda to the movie were especially puzzling because the film already had a scene that popped up during the credits, revealing (Again: MAJOR SPOILER ALERT) the secret villain who was aiding Loki’s alien-invasion of Earth.

For those non-comic-geeks who saw this scene and had no idea who the character was (at the premiere, someone asked, “Is that Hellboy?”), we’ll direct you to this explanation from EW’s Darren Franich, and just say that he factors into Feige’s plan to explore the larger universe within “the Marvel universe” in their upcoming films.

Lo and behold, The Avengers did have another post-credits scene in the works, and EW learned all about it when we interviewed Whedon and the rest of the superhero cast for the exclusive roundtable discussion that would become last week’s cover story. (You can see videos from that trash-talking conversation here.)

That conversation answered a few burning questions, among them: how was Chris Evans going to recreate Captain America, since he not only had a buzz cut now (easily fixed with a wig) but he had a full beard — and still did a day after shooting? (That, obviously, is not so easily fixed.)

So, if you’ve seen the movie, you know that in the climactic New York battle against the alien invaders Iron Man does something selfless and noble and nearly loses his life for it. As he tumbles back to Earth, he is rescued mid-plummet by the Hulk, who breaks the fall by surfing down the side of some buildings and deposits Iron Man’s limp form on the pulverized street below.

EW, coincidentally, was on the New Mexico set of the movie during filming of this scene, in which Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Chris Evans’ Captain America rush over and Thor rips off Iron Man’s mask to reveal an unconscious Tony Stark.

In the original script (SPOILER ALERT — and, do I really need to keep saying that at this point?) the billionaire awakens with a start and asks, ”What’s next?”

But during filming, Downey is notorious for pushing for variations and felt that line could be something snappier. Whedon agreed, and penned several new versions of the scene in a notebook the day of shooting. ”Peek behind the curtain,” Whedon told EW, showing us the scribbles. ”It was one line — now it’s three pages.”

Those new lines were the seed that led to the last-minute scene, though no one knew that at the time — not even Whedon. Otherwise, he surely would have shot the post-credits sequence before his cast scattered and had to be reunited by the movie’s premiere.

What was in those pages? “Please tell me nobody tried to kiss me,” Stark says, looking up at a looming Thor and Cap. That line made the finished movie, but others didn’t. There were several other variations in which Stark congratulates his fellow Avengers on winning the battle, and then — realizing it’s not over yet — wearily begins making suggestions about how much time off they’re going to be owed.

The line that made the final cut was a slightly more random one: Stark learns that there is more fighting left to do, and says fine, as long as the others agree to hit a good shawarma restaurant he knows in the neighborhood. (I guess after spending all that time in the Middle East, Stark developed a taste for Arab slow-roasted meats.)

We’re not doing justice to the jokes here, but Stark’s other cracks seemed to be a little funnier than the shawarma one, which seemed a little obscure. Of course, that changes dramatically if you pay it off with a scene of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the re-humanized Hulk all grabbing an after-work bite at said restaurant.

And that, dear readers, is what Whedon and Marvel realized after the fact, too.

When The Avengers is over — and we mean over-over, when the last credit has rolled — we cut to the gang sitting silently around a table, munching on pitas like any colleagues who have just put in a lot of overtime. In the background, restaurant workers quietly clean-up debris in the apocalypse-adjacent eatery.

And they say… nothing. After saving the planet, they are spent. It’s basically an awkward kind of funny.

You can find bootleg clips of the scene online, but why do that? You’ve already seen the movie, right?

Right?

Anyway …

We join The Avengers reunion already in progress.

It’s the day after filming the new scene — weirdly, two days after the premiere — and Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner are seated at a conference table in the Four Seasons Hotel, joking about the look of their respective LEGO figurines. Mark Ruffalo is playing “Hulk SMASH!” with a few of the Hasbro toys scattered across the table while Joss Whedon looks on. We’re waiting for the rest to arrive.

Robert Downey Jr. has just entered the room, and immediately begins mocking the prosthetic that Evans needed to hide his beard for the scene. (Evans also, you’ll notice, covers his face throughout that footage by resting his cheek against his hand.)

“Where is Chris Evans? Getting his face replaced?” Downey asks.

Evans hasn’t arrived yet, but that doesn’t hold back Downey. “Chris, why the long face? Chris, why the WRONG face?” Downey says as the other guys laugh.

Ruffalo shakes his head, his lips pursed. “Oh no …”

“I felt so bad for him!” Hemsworth says, wincing. He makes a swallowed sound, like someone trying to speak through glued-shut lips.

Downey twists his face into an Elephant Man snarl. “Hey guys, I am not an animal,” he mutters.

Pah! Out of nowhere, a rocket from an Iron Man toy fires just past Ruffalo’s head, nearly hitting the real Iron Man beside him.

“What the f–k did you just do?” Downey asks, still giddy.

“Say that to my face … my real one.” (Photo: Zade Rosenthal)

Ruffalo is still turning over the toy, trying to figure that out. “I just shot myself,” he shrugs.

Whedon, who has been silent this whole time (making ixnay eyes because THERE’S AN EW REPORTER SITTING RIGHT THERE) finally gives up, and tells Downey: “Thank you for having every reporter ask me what we were shooting.”

“You’re welcome,” Downey says, unapologetic about revealing plans for the scene at a press conference the afternoon before.

Whedon was exaggerating, of course. Not every reporter had asked that question … yet.

“So what were you shooting today?” your friendly neighborhood EW reporter inquires.

Whedon squints his eyes, like Mr. Peabody when he’s fed up with Sherman.

Downey opens his arms. “Carnival barker!” he declares. “Last night, I just wanted to make sure the excitement was there.”

Whedon breaks into an impression of what he’s been dealing with all day: “’So I hear you’re shooting a scene?’” he says in the voice of a curious reporter. Leaning back and twiddling his thumbs, the filmmaker offers his fake-smiley response: “‘I’m sure I don’t know what you mean!’”

Then Whedon decides to tell them how it turned out. “We actually went through it as you guys left. It’s awesome. We found three bits, beginning, middle, and end, and the end one was just supreme.”

“So it’s [going to be] the last 30 seconds?” Ruffalo asks.

“They. Are. Tired,” Whedon tells him. “And then at the last second, he is just like [CHOMP],” the filmmaker says, gesturing toward Hemsworth and miming a big bite from a stuffed pita.

“I thought I might be sick, by the way,” Hemsworth says. “I ate one [pita] each take, you know! And by the end, I was like, Whooooaaa …”

“Hello, sir!” Evans says cheerfully as he enters the conference room — unaware that his prosthetic-covered lower face, and the difficulty he had speaking, are the hot topic.

“Not without my beard,” Downey says, mumbling like his jaw is wired shut.

Suddenly Renner, who has been low-key this entire time, breaks into a Chris-Evans-with-prosthetic-make-up Buffalo Bill impression from The Silence of the Lambs: “‘I’d f–k me!’”

Downey, as you can imagine, just loses it.

Evans laughs along like a good sport, but it was probably easier on him when the other Avengers had their faces stuffed with shawarma.

You can see his cryptic I-know-something-you-don’t-know tweet about The Avengers scene from three weeks ago here,though he’s now embarrassed to realize he misspelled “shawarma.”

That is some sweet artwork. Definately would be a good buy. And ap the cap suit is pretty sweet. Also in other news here is a story from feige on possible future for mid credit character:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=59286
Joss Whedon On The Introduction Of You-Know-Who In THE AVENGERS Mid-Credits Scene

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon discuss the introduction of a certain someone in the mid-credits scene of Marvel's The Avengers and drop a few hints as to where we might see him next. [WARNING: Major Spoilers Ahead] Josh Wilding - 5/7/2012

Talking to /Film, Kevin Feige has revealed that it was in fact Joss Whedon's idea to introduce Thanos in the mid-credits scene of Marvel's The Avengers. Unfortunately, neither would reveal exactly where he'll turn up next, but Feige had this to say about non-fans possibly not recognising a character who is best know to comic book readers. "All of our tags are sort of like that. If you don’t know who Nick Fury is, that’s just Sam Jackson in an eye mask at the end and somebody is going to tell you who it is. That really spread. So I think Thanos will be the same way. During the premiere last night there were two guys behind me, I don’t know who they were, when Thanos turned around they went “Oh my God, it’s that… What’s his name? I can’t remember his name, but he’s that… Oh my God.” So you know clearly in the way it’s presented, it’s somebody important, so “ask somebody.” But don’t spoil that"

Regardless of the Thor 2 suggestions (Thanos's lackey did say that there would be repercussions for Loki if he failed) it sounds as if Whedon is a big enough fan that he might just choose to use him again in future should he return for The Avengers 2. If nothing else, he's certainly a big fan of the Jim Starlin creation. "He for me is the most powerful and fascinating Marvel villain. He’s the great grand daddy of the badasses and he’s in love with death and I just think that’s so cute. For me, the greatest Avengers was THE AVENGERS annual that Jim Starlin did followed by THE THING 2 in 1 that contained the death of Adam Warlock. Those were some of the most important texts and I think underrated milestones in Marvel history and Thanos is all over that, so somebody had to be in control and had to be behind Loki’s work and I was like “It’s got to be Thanos.” And they said “Okay” and I’m like “Oh my God!”"

The site also mentions that Feige hinted that we may not see their plans for Thanos come to fruition until the planned Guardians of the Galaxy film. While Joss Whedon is clearly a BIG fan of the villain, the character does seem to be the perfect choice in helping Marvel Studios expand their cosmic universe. Stay tuned for more details and be sure to click on the link below to read the interview in full.

Well, damned if I can find it now but a while back, someone (webhead?) posted a link to a series of videos containing basically raw footage from the Avengers. In total, I guess it all ran maybe twenty minutes altogether. Maybe it was alternate camera angle stuff or it might've material shot by the DVD extras team or something, I dunno, but there was a lot of shit in there.

The stand out moment for me though was an aerial view of Captain America running down the street, hopping over different obstacles and stuff. Now, yeah, that moment is in the movie but you don't get the same sense of his agility in that sequence. In the movie, it's a close up of his feet as he runs and leaps and stuff. But to watch the raw footage, Cap does shit you'd swear he'd need wires to pull off but (unless I missed them) they just weren't there.

Seriously, I have to scrape the barrel like that to find something to criticize the Avengers for.

The avengers bluray/dvd possible info/release date:
http://m.joblo.com/dd/news/11529
Update: Joss Whedon's Avengers coming to DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D this fall

UPDATE: We've received a bit more unofficial information regarding the film including three covers for the Blu-rays and DVD as well as a more complete look at the potential special features.

THE AVENGERS has finally hit theaters and after its first weekend, it is doing exceptionally well with a record breaking opening at the box office. And why shouldn’t it be doing well? It combines the collective awesomeness of the Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo… for this film) movies into one film that is so full of amazing that it almost seems impossible.

Of course joining the heroes who have already had their own films are Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson), both characters have made appearances in other Marvel movies. Plus the villain you love to hate, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), is back and ready to cause mischief. Then there's Nick Fury (Sam Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and more. Oh and did I mention that Joss freakin’ Whedon wrote and directed the film? I hope by now you know that, but if not, that’s just like Reason #121.

The whole idea for the film is the heroes coming together to kick ass, but this is the actual more officialish synopsis for the film: ”The S.H.I.E.L.D. agency brings together a team of superhumans to help save the Earth from annihilation by extraterrestrial invaders.”

Now believe it or not, but it looks like THE AVENGERS has already been given a home video release date (HELLS YES!). It’s still very early, but it looks like THE AVENGERS will be arriving on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D early in the fall on September 25. We have a look at what could potentially be the cover art and a look at what special features will be included with the release. Word is that a 10-disc set will also be released with THE AVENGERS that will include all of the films leading up to the film (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America), but no official word on that yet.

AVENGERS 4-Disc BD Combo Pack, 2-Disc BD Combo Pack and 2-Disc DVD Combo Pack Special Features: • AUDIO COMMENTARY BY DIRECTOR JOSS WHEDON • MARVEL ONE-SHOT: ITEM 47 • SECOND SCREEN • GAG REEL • DELETED SCENES - Alternate Opening - Maria Hill Interrogation - Extended Scene - Loki & Barton Strategize - Steve Rogers - Man Out of Time - Nick Fury & World Security Council - Extended Viaduct Fight - Raw Footage - Fury & Hill Discuss the World Security Council - Extended Scene - Banner and Security Guard - Alternate Ending - Maria Hill Interrogation • FEATURETTES A Visual Journey - Assembling the Ultimate Team • SOUNDGARDEN MUSIC VIDEO - "Live to Rise"

AVENGERS DVD Special Features: • AUDIO COMMENTARY BY DIRECTOR JOSS WHEDON • FEATURETTES - Assembling the Ultimate Team

Mtv theories on coulson future:
Spoiler:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/DGTZ/news/?a=60025
MTV Has Some Really Good Theories On Why Agent Coulson May Become The Vision

The theories continue to spill about how a certain character in The Avengers is destined to become Vision,and these ones are really good. Check them out after the jump! DGTZ - 5/18/2012

MTV has listed some very good theories on their page on why Coulson could become Vision..

» Life Model Decoys It's already been established that there are synthezoids and life model decoys in the Marvel movie universe. Life model decoys have been mentioned several times now, in both "Iron Man 2" and "The Avengers," while synthezoids were briefly discussed in "Captain America: The First Avenger." Since there are already fully functioning androids that exist, it seems only fair to assume that The Vision is just around the corner.

» Lack of Emotion If there's one thing people remember about Phil Coulson, it's that he rarely showed any signs of emotion. Always appearing calm and collected, even after being stabbed through the chest by Loki, Coulson is already android-like in that regard. The fact that he had the foresight to advise Nick Fury to use his untimely death as a means of motivating the team only adds to Coulson's cool and calculated nature.

» Stark Tower Security Towards the beginning of "The Avengers," Agent Coulson somehow manages to bypass all of the high tech security that Stark Tower has to offer. How is it that Coulson is able to waltz right in to the home of one of the richest and smartest men in the world? Well, perhaps he has the ability to manipulate his density. You know, making himself intangible and what not.

» One Good Eye After the death of Coulson, Nick Fury states that he "lost his one good eye." While this is clearly a play on words, being as Nick Fury wears an eye-patch, it could also be a reference to Coulson's codename: Vision. In the field, Agent Coulson would act as Fury's eyes allowing him to see anything and everything that Coulson sees firsthand. Get it? Vision? Eyes?

» Jim Hammond The only thing that Agent Coulson ever showed the slightest bit of enthusiasm for was Captain America. Jim Hammond, the original Human Torch android, fought alongside Captain America on several occasions back in the '40s, according to comic book lore. he body of Jim Hammond is also the original synthezoid on which The Vision was based. It's a stretch, but that could serve as yet another clue that Coulson will come back in android form.

I just came across this story. Marvel is sending the avengers to ISS for the crew up there to view. This is a very nice thing for marvel and nasa. Here is the full story on it:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/Wolvie09/news/?a=60753
Marvel Studios To Screen THE AVENGERS In Space

Now this is pretty cool... Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures just announced that they will screen their superhero epic for the crew of International Space Station (ISS). Hit the jump to check out the press release... WolvieCBM - 5/31/2012

Marvel Studios announced today that they arranged with NASA to transfer their record-breaking blockbuster film Marvel’s The Avengers to NASA’s Mission Control in Houston,which will uplink the film to the International Space Station (ISS),currently orbiting 220 miles above Earth. The film will then be screened for the space station crew’s exclusive enjoyment.

This screening continues Marvel’s collaboration with NASA, which began during principal photography of Marvel’s The Avengers when the film shot at the Space Power Facility at NASA’s Plum Brook Station in Sandusky,Ohio.

Louis D’Esposito,Marvel Studios’ Co-President and Executive Producer of Marvel’s The Avengers,says,‘The studio is privileged to share Marvel’s The Avengers with those up in space exploring the universe. A special thanks goes to NASA for utilizing their incredible technology to make this special screening miles above us in space happen. It is a screening that would make Tony Stark envious.’

Films,books,and music offer important aspects of psychological support for astronauts on long-duration missions,such as those on the International Space Station (ISS). ‘These are the types of things that help to keep the crew connected to home,which is a huge morale boost while being away for long periods of time,’ said Dan Cook, Psychological Support Coordinator with Wyle,a contractor at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Aside from watching movies and television shows,ISS crewmembers have a number of options for their leisure and personal time,such as reading books or magazines,listening to music,and playing musical instruments.

The current space station mission is Expedition 31 and has a six-member crew consisting of 2 NASA Astronauts,1 European Space Agency (ESA) Astronaut,and 3 Russian (RU) Cosmonauts as follows: Don Pettit (NASA),Joe Acaba (NASA),Andre Kuipers (ESA),Oleg Kononenko (RU),Gennady Padalka (RU),Sergei Revin (RU).

The Avengers most mistake film of the year so far:
http://www.slashfilm.com/superhero-bits-245/3/
THE AVENGERS Is The Most Mistake Filled Movie Of 2012 (So Far)

According to Movie Mistakes.com Joss Whedon's big screen depiction of Earth's Mightiest Heroes is the most mistake filled movie of 2012 (so far). Mark Julian - 6/21/2012

At a count of 15, Marvel's The Avengers is 2012's most mistake filled movie so far (The Hunger Games is second at 13). Here are some of the mistakes that have been identified thus far---

Factual error: The video game company NAMCO Bandai is misspelled twice as "NAMECO Bandai" in the end credits.

Audio problem: When one of the computer operators resumed playing Galaga, the sound effect heard is for an enemy ship attempting to capture the player's ship, but what's shown on screen is normal gameplay.

Continuity: In multiple shots where Iron Man is flying around the city, there are cuts on his forehead. However, when he is lying on the ground and Thor rips the face mask of his suit off, the cuts on his forehead have disappeared.

Continuity: After Iron Man takes out a worm "Jonah style", he crashes into a cab and stop about two feet away. He gets up, there is a quick shot of him on the inside of his suit, and when he gets up, the cab is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity: Near the end of the big battle scene, Captain America is winged by a blaster bolt. When he is helped to his feet by Thor, he is holding his side, and there is visible damage to his uniform. In later shots, all evidence of being shot is gone from his uniform.

Continuity: Just after Dr. Banner asks Nick Fury how many spectrometers the Helicarrier has access to, he takes off his jacket, rolls it up, and puts it under his arm. In the next shot, the jacket is suddenly draped over his arm.

Continuity: When the vehicle bringing Captain America & Agent Coulson to the Helicarrier lands, in the wide shot, as the vehicle touches down, the wing tips fold downwards and inwards as if preparing for storage on board. But in the next shots outside the vehicle as Captain America disembarks, the wing tips are in their extended and locked flight position.

Factual error: In the scene in Stuttgart, we see a "reserved parking" sign written as "Reservierten Parken". In correct German it would be written "Reservierter Parkplatz".

Continuity: Throughout the film, Tony Stark's chest ring can be seen glowing through his shirt except for two occasions when it's suddenly off - after Loki escapes from the helicarrier, and when Loki and Tony Stark are talking in Stark tower.

Continuity: When Captain America is punching the heavy bags and Fury first walks in, the bag that Captain America is punching (not the one he already broke) changes from not having duct tape around the middle, to having it, and then back.

Audio problem: When Bruce Banner meets Natasha Romanoff for the first time in Calcutta, there's a shot from behind her where Natasha is heard talking but her reflection in the small mirror behind Bruce isn't.

Oh look another potential lawsuit problem:

Thanos creator gearing up for lawsuit?

Published Saturday, Jul 7 2012, 11:37 BST | By Hugh Armitage |

Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid. Please click here if you wish to continue.

Jim Starlin has offered proof that he created Thanos, leading to speculation that he may launch a lawsuit against Marvel Comics.

The writer and artist has posted an early concept drawing of the Mad Titan from before he began working at the publisher, reports The Beat.

Interest in the character is growing following his cameo in The Avengers movie, the speculation of an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film and the announcement of a Thanos: Son of Titan miniseries from Joe Keatinge and Richard Elson.

"This is probably one of the first concept drawings of Thanos I ever did, long before I started working at Marvel," Starlin wrote on his Facebook page. "Jack Kirby's Metron is clearly the more dominant influence in this character's look. Not Darkseid.

"Both D and T started off much smaller than they eventually became. This was one of the drawings I had in my portfolio when I was hired by Marvel. It was later inked by Rich Buckler."

Marvel is reportedly struggling to find records relating to the period in the mid-'70s when Thanos debuted in its comics.

"This is the second film that had something I created for Marvel in it - the Infinity Gauntlet in Thor being the other - and both films I had to pay for my own ticket to see them," Starlin previously said.

"Financial compensation to the creators of these characters doesn't appear to be part of the equation."

I'll bet they can just throw some Mouse Dollars at it and it'll go away all by itself. Unless he's being repped by Toberoff, that is...
