Avengers Endgame deleted scenes

It’s no surprise that Disney and Marvel made sure that Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing movie in modern history, was available to stream on Disney+ on the new service’s first day. But it is actually a bit surprising to see that Disney+ is offering some new special features that didn’t appear on the Blu-ray, including deleted scenes involving an alternate version of the movie’s epic final battle, Tony Stark meeting with an adult version of his daughter (played by Katherine Langford) after his big snap at the end, and more.

If you subscribe to Disney+, you can head over there and check out some new deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame. I’ll list them all below, but one that I especially want to call your attention to is a three-minute video called In the Trench, which features directors Anthony and Joe Russo providing commentary over footage they shot for an earlier version of the movie’s final battle.

When I was putting together /Film’s massive oral history of that section of the movie, multiple people referred to aspects of that sequence that I’d never seen before, but which are included in this deleted scene. It shows an alternate version of Peter Parker and Tony Stark’s emotional reunion on the battlefield, as well as the rest of the team hanging out in a giant trench dug by Giant-Man and trying to form a plan about how to access the Quantum Realm.

As co-writer Christopher Markus told me about this scene, “I remember doing that and remember kind of knowing while we were doing it that, ‘Eh, it’s probably not going to make it. This is the biggest amount of star power that’s going to get cut in history.’ It was sort of like, ‘We’ve got all of them, we’ve got the set, the scene doesn’t work – shoot it anyway.'”

But that’s just one of several new features streaming on Disney+. Here’s a breakdown of the differences and crossover in special features between formats:
