What are the best deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame?

Johannes Gelilang - Contributor

Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with Iron Man in 2008, the phenomenon has never ended. Marvel has done a great job of keeping their loyal fanbase by producing great superhero movies in which stories interconnect each other. Subsequently, the world saw The Avengers assemble Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye to fight Loki. The Avengers was a huge success critically and financially, resulting in more Marvel superhero films. With its culmination in the 2019 Avengers: Endgame, fans received the epic ending that everyone deserves. But what if we tell you that a version of Avengers: Endgame with never before scenes can be streamed online? Can you imagine how the events in the movie would happen with these deleted parts?

Since Disney+ launched on November 12, 2019, most Marvel Cinematic Universe films had been up for online streaming. Among its catalog of MCU movies is the Avengers: Endgame. For Disney+ patrons, this is great news since the streaming service provider offers access to some of the movie's deleted sequences. Aside from Disney+, Endgame is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD as well. The Blu-Ray and DVD versions each have their own set of bonus features and deleted scenes. Overall, there are a total of 11 different clips which unfortunately did not make the final cut. Some of the parts were alternate takes on certain parts of the film, while others are just whole scenes that were cut short. We have listed below some of the most epic Avenger: Endgame scenes that never came to be. We will also include the reason behind why it never made the big screen. (WARNING: THIS LIST CONTAINS COMPLETE SPOILERS!)

  1. 1The Ancient One and Hulk at the Sanctum


    Apparently, there were two versions of the scene where Bruce Banner confronted the Ancient One during the Battle of New York (happened during The Avengers circa 2012). Both versions only contain rough VFX. It shows both of them having a brief discussion about time travel mechanics. The directors wanted a discover an approach to time travel tied to the idea of Quantum Physics, that's why a reshoot has been made.

    It was also one of the main reasons why another version of their encounter was dropped. Although this one was as close as the one that made the theatrical cut, Anthony and Joe Russo thought of upping the intensity of the scene and add conflict. The two directors also thought that the idea was too complex for the audience to follow, so they reshot a more simplified clip reiterating the need for the stones to be returned after the war.

  1. 2The trench scene


    This sequence was already revealed earlier, but it is still better to be watched. Disney+ features this deleted part where all heroes met a trench personally, including characters who've never interacted. It took place at some point during the fight against Thanos and his minions since they were planning to throw Stark's Nano Gauntlet onto the Quantum Realm. It also featured another version of Spider-Man and Iron Man's reunion.

    The deleted scene also includes some of the different versions of the ones that ultimately made the final cut. Fans can see Mantis being astonished at the new Gamora while pondering whether she had become a zombie. It also shows an argument between Tony Stark and Doctor Strange. In the video, the cast is on full threads and are portraying their respective parts. However, the whole clip isn't a finished output, with chroma keys still visible. It wouldn't have worked effectively in the film since having almost 20 characters in the same trench in a hectic battle doesn't seem natural. Alas, 20 is too crowded for a small trench.

  2. 3Morgan and Tony Stark


    Almost a majority of the fans have been waiting so long for this deleted scene to be released. Lucky for Disney+ subscribers, they get to see a clip where Tony meets an older version of his beloved daughter Morgan Stark. The objective is to let Tony bid farewell to Morgan the same way Thanos saw Gamora for the last time in Avengers: Infinity War. According to Joe Russo, the goal was that Morgan had forgiven him and gave him peace to go on. It was moving, but it's already a complicated movie filled with different ideas. 

  1. 4Black Widow's death


    Another one from the Endgame deleted scenes on Disney+ feature an alternate version of Black Widow and Hawkeye's hardship in Vormir. Unlike in the theatrical release where the two Avengers fought each other for sacrificing their own for the Soul Stone, their fight was cut short when Thanos and his army arrived on the planet in search of the stone. Romanov took advantage of the chaos to move forward. Although hit by laser blasts several times, she lasted long enough to save Clint one more time and jump off the cliff, even with Thanos in pursuit. Joe Russo said that this version of the sequence was that Thanos' army dominated this moment that the creators wanted for Hawkeye and Black Widow. 

  2. 5The Avengers bend the knee


    If you haven't watched the ending of Avengers: Endgame yet, DO NOT PROCEED! After Tony used the Nano Gauntlet to will Thanos and his group out of existence, his comrades showed respect to the fallen hero. One after the other, each character kneeled before Pepper who's holding the body of his husband. Gamora, on the other hand, walked away silently from the battlefield rather than hang around a group she barely even know.

    According to the screenwriters Markus and McFeely, that part doesn't ring that true given that each hero take turns kneeling looks planned. Also, they felt that it inhibited the flow of the consequent scenes and the impact of Stark's funeral.
