endgame deleted scene

Avengers: Endgame is on its way to digital and Blu-ray, which means the hype for the film gets to start up all over again. Even though Endgame is already so long people had to write entire articles about not taking bathroom breaks during the runtime, it could’ve been even longer. Case in point: an Endgame deleted scene is now available for your viewing pleasure. If you’ve somehow avoided seeing the film this long, you might want to avoid this scene, as it’s a bit spoiler heavy. Watch it below.

Avengers: Endgame Deleted Scene 

In the Endgame deleted scene above, the survivors of the big climactic battle all decide to take a knee to pay their respects to the recently departed Tony Stark. It’s meant to be a big emotional moment, but you can understand why it was cut – it’s a bit heavy-handed, and the film doesn’t really need it. Because the scene following this gets the same message across – Tony’s big funeral.

There is one important moment here, though. This scene shows what happened to Gamora. At the end of the theatrical cut of Endgame, Gamora more or less vanishes. Peter Quill is seen looking her up on a ship’s computer, but her fate is a little vague. So vague, in fact, that several people thought she might have gone up into dust after Tony snapped the fingers of his Iron Man Gauntlet. Here, we clearly see Gamora is alive and well, and simply walks away while everyone is kneeling. This means she’s still out there somewhere, and I’m guessing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will involve Quill and the gang trying to find her.
