Watch the Norn Cave Deleted Scene From Avengers: Age of Ultron

You can excuse director Joss Whedon for having to leave quite a bit on the cutting room floor considering how much ground (and sky, and space) he had to cover in Avengers: Age of UltronOne of the scenes that didn't make it into the film was this extended look at the Norn Cave that Marvel has just released.

The Norn Cave has a small but very magically potent pool that Thor prepares to enter, with Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) looking on. Although the pool isn't huge, it's very deep, and considering it's in Ultron and is being entered by Thor, you know there's something other worldly going on here. Thor recites something in an Asgardian language that translates to “The thing I fear contains the thing I need.” Thor takes a sip from his flask and then plunges into the waters. Check out what happens next, which makes major connections to the previous film and contains a very dark request.
