An AVENGERS Pizza Party, Thanos Decapitating Cap & More Shocking Scrapped ENDGAME Ideas Revealed

Avengers: Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely's SDCC Hall H panel has just finished up, and the pair have revealed some shocking ideas they had for the film that never made the cut...

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely's Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con has just finished up, and the screenwriters discussed quite a few previously unrevealed details about their original plans for Avengers: Endgame - some of which are bound to shock.

While many of these were undoubtedly just fleeting ideas the pair tossed around in the very early stages of writing the script, it sounds like one or two came close to staying in the final draft before being scrapped - and reading through some of what's outlined below, it's not hard to see why!

Smart Hulk Almost Featured In Infinity War

We'll start with a couple of Infinity War tidbits.

As many suspected, The Hulk was set to return during the final battle, but it would have been the "Smart Hulk" we were first introduced to in Endgame.

Apparently, the original idea was to have the Green Goliath burst out of the Hulkbuster armor (that explains the toy) to do battle with Cull Obsidian. Markus reveals that the sequence was abandoned because it didn't gel with the rest of the third act.

The Midgard Serpent

In Infinity War, Thor calls on Eitri the Dwarf to help him create Stormbreaker, but the writers' original concept would have featured an appearance from the Midgard Serpent.

Admitting that the idea for the storyline "sucked," McFeely explains that The God of Thunder would have had to do battle with the giant creature in order to obtain the powerful axe.

Jane Foster

It sounds like Jane Foster almost had a much bigger role in Endgame, but plans may well have changed when they couldn't convince Natalie Portman to reprise the role.

The writers outlined what sounds like a very funny scene in which Rocket has to convince Jane to allow him to remove the Aether from her body.

The Living Tribunal

Living Tribunal

Yes, The Living Tribunal almost appeared in Avengers: Endgame.

Thanos and Doctor Strange were originally going to have a rematch during the final battle, and the Sorcerer Supreme would have zapped The Mad Titan's mind into the mindscape, presenting with all his various crimes before having him judged guilty by the Tribunal.

Markus reveals that the sequence never made the cut because they felt it might be too confusing for general audiences.

Stark's Final Words

Kevin Feige and The Russos touched on this before, but during the panel Markus and McFeely revealed that they wrote multiple final words for Iron Man to leave us with before succumbing to his injuries, but Robert Downy Jr. wasn't having any of it.

Apparently, the actor felt strongly that it would hit much harder emotionally if a character like Tony Stark was silent for once just before he died.

Yes, Gamora is still alive.

Believed by some to have been "snapped away" at the end of the film when Stark vanquished Thanos' forces, the writers confirm that she survived and most likely went on the run.

There's a very good chance he story will be explored in GOTG Vol. 3.

Pizza Party

One "terrible idea" that was considered for the final act would have seen the dusted heroes from Infinity War "blip" back into existence in the Avengers: Compound.

Spider-Man would have been the first to return, and he'd have convinced the others to have a pizza party before the final battle kicked off.

Yeah... probably best this didn't make the cut!

America's Ass Head

Finally, we have what would have been the darkest moment in The MCU by far.

According to Markus and McFeely, they toyed with the idea of having Thanos travel to Earth before going forward in time to attack The Avengers. The Mad Titan would have massacred every member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and took Captain America's head into the future with him before throwing at the feet of Steve Rogers.

The sequence was abandoned because it was deemed too bleak and they didn't want to traumatize children.
