The God of Thunder would perhaps be the last Avenger to get possessed by an entity at least willingly. A recently released deleted scene shows him getting into a pool so that the Norn (any of the three goddesses of fate in the Norse mythology) can possess him and share the knowledge they already know. Dr. Erik Selvig is present in the scene and it actually presents a clearer picture of how things went down.
According to Cinema Blend, the scene shows the God of Thunder along with his old friend Dr. Erik entering the old cave seeking answers. Just before entering the pool, Thor even admits that he is scared and takes a sip from his flask. Once in the pool, it is Dr. Erik who asks all the questions, which the Norn give via Thor. They happen to talk about infinity stones that further hint at how important the stones will prove to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase three.
As far as the movie is concerned, this act of Thor also helps them in uncovering the truth of creating the Vision and ultimately defeating Ultron. This scene was screened at advanced screenings with some bunch of audiences but because of lack of visual effects and apparently confusing in nature, another complex scene that we saw in the final cut replaced it. The deleted scene does show one important aspect in Thor’s personality and that is stepping up wisely.
Until now in every Marvel movie that we have seen be it “Thor,” “Thor: The Dark World” or “Avengers,” we have seen the God of Thunder in active smashing mode but this scene showed him use his wit and put his own life in danger in order to seek answers.
Comicbook.com added that Thor left Hawkeye’s distant farmhouse because he wanted to know the secret hidden behind his visions when he was under Scarlet Witch’s spell. Nonetheless what we saw in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was nothing short of spectacle and it turned out to be an equally amazing sequel.
