We recently learned some new details about the goodies that we’re going to see in the upcoming home release of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, including the titles of the four deleted scenes that will be in the Blu-Ray edition of the movie. One of those scenes was released yesterday, but now Entertainment Weekly has debuted another never-before-seen scene from the movie, featuring Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) working together during the airport battle.

In the clip, Bucky picks up Steven’s iconic shield to save him from War Machine (Don Cheadle). He also makes it clear that he wants a shield of his own. Speaking with EW, directors Joe and Anthony Russo explained why this scene didn’t make the cut:

“We were looking for a transitional moment to get Cap and Bucky back together, but in editorial we ultimately realized we didn’t need that transition. It’s actually one of my favorite beats in that whole sequence, but it’s just a function of storytelling and editing, and wasn’t something we needed to tell the story, but it’s a great bit for the DVD.” (Joe Russo)

“Sometimes you do get a little experimental when you’re shooting, and if something just doesn’t work, that’s something we wouldn’t put on the DVD. There’s certainly a category of things that may be beats you really like, but for whatever reason the rhythm of the film isn’t asking for it at that particular moment. You want to cut it out just because the movie’s stronger, more propulsive and cleaner and tighter without it.” (Anthony Russo)

You can check out the deleted scene below.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Bruhl and Tom Holland, Captain America: Civil War hits Blu-Ray and DVD on September 13, 2016. Are you guys excited?
