This Deleted Avengers: Endgame Scene Reveals One Missing Character's Fate While Ruining The Ending Of Another

Just imagine that, Avengers: Endgame could've been even longer AND slightly worse.

Avengers: Endgame was a bladder-burstingly long film that could’ve very well been even longer had the directors decided to go with some of the crazier ideas they had in mind.

The directors still ended up shooting a bunch of stuff that ended up on the cutting room floor and now USA Today has released one of these deleted scenes out into the open.

It takes place immediately after Tony Stark‘s death following his use of the Infinity Stones to snap away Thanos and his minions. It’s basically an extension of the scene we eventually got as we see all the surviving Avengers pay their respects to the billionaire by taking a knee.

The scene is clearly going for a big emotional moment, but it simply doesn’t land. It’s more heavy-handed than the Hulk, adds unneeded extra minutes to Endgame‘s runtime to the detriment of everyone’s bladder and kinda ruins Tony’s ending by unnecessarily padding out the moment. The same sentiment is carried across far better during Tony’s big funeral anyway so it’s pretty clear why the scene was cut.

That being said, the scene did clear the air on what exactly happened to 2014-Gamora, who disappeared following the battle and was presumed by some to have gone up in dust. While everyone else were kneeling, she simply shrugs and wanders off.

2014-Gamora in a nutshell.

But the Gamora reveal ultimately wasn’t needed either as Endgame‘s ending shows Peter Quill searching for her on his ship’s computer, rendering the scene a little moot. Granted that her fate is pretty damn vague but let’s be honest, there was no way Marvel would kill off Gamora (again).

Something needs to propel the story in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after all and having Starlord and his group of A-holes going on a wild goose after their green-skinned comrade seems like a pretty good place to start.

Someone Tried To Buy Weed With An Actual Thor ID And We Have Many Questions About Its Dodginess

Or maybe Thor is legit just a stoner now.

When you’re in Canada and you’re underage but want to get your hands on some (legal) weed, the usual route is to get a convincing fake ID and hope for the best. What you don’t do is make a fake ID of the character of Thor, complete with Chris Hemsworth‘s face as the photo.

Well that’s exactly what one genius/idiot did.

Twitter user @cottoncandaddy shared a photo of a legit fake ID of Marvel’s seductive Lord God of Thunder that their sister, who works for an online weed dispensary, got and, well, just look at it.

Completely disregarding the fact that the genius/idiot who made this went with one of the most recognisable faces on the planet, we have a bunch of questions about this ID.

Firstly, what is up with the photo? If you’re going to use a photo of Chris Hemsworth, at least use one of him looking at the camera and not one of him staring off in some random direction.

Secondly, “69 Big Hammer Ln” is obviously a fake address thought up by some 14-year-old kid. At least use a semi-legit address, dumbarse.

Thirdly, the height and weight stats are completely out of wack. Thor is a big guy but no one in their right mind is going to think that he is 205cm and 68kg. Those are the stats for Slender Man, not a Norse god.

205cm and 68kg indeed.

And lastly, even if the person used a convincing photo of Chris/Thor and had the correct physical stats and address, the ID is expired. Since 2017.

At least they got the hair colour right.

So unless the person on shift was a complete moron or if Chris Hemsworth wanted to get some weed and left his ID somewhere there’s no way in hell this fake ID was going to make the cut.

The genius/idiot would have a better chance of buying weed if the real-life Thor flew down to Earth and bought it for him. Don’t rule that possibility out though because the God of Thunder was going through some serious stuff in the last Avengers movie and could definitely some stress relief.

Black Widow Will Finally Pay Off Your Favourite Long-Running Avengers Joke

It's like the Black Widow film was willed into existence purely to service this gag.

Two big questions fans had about the upcoming Black Widow film is where in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline it sits and what story it will tell given that she’s, you know, dead.

These were seemingly answered when eagle-eyed fans snapped a few photos on the set of the film, revealing that it will be set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.

But it seems like Marvel had an extra trick up its sleeve as apparently the film will also dive into Natasha Romanoff’s backstory while also paying off one of the best gags that was introduced in The Avengers: Budapest.

We’re definitely going to remember Budapest very differently after this.

During Marvel’s stacked 2019 Comic-Con panel, the comic book behemoth trotted out the long-awaited first look of the Black Widow film and revealed that at least part of it will indeed take place in Budapest prior to any MCU movie we’ve seen.

While it was short on story, the screened footage is reportedly full of arse-kicking scenes that includes a sizzle reel celebrating the character, Natasha and her “sister” Yelena greeting each other in Budapest with a bout of fisticuffs, and David Harbour as some sort of Russian Captain America.

It all sounds awesome and feels like Marvel is doing its own version of the gritty, Jason Bourne-esque action film. But let’s be honest, the biggest thing anyone is here for is the Budapest stuff. After eight years of pondering over that seemingly throwaway one-line gag, we’re finally getting a much-delayed pay off. Good things come to those who wait I suppose.

What on earth went down in Budapest? WE NEED TO KNOW!

This also throws up a question of whether Hawkeye will appear in the film as a sort of secret character since he and Natasha “remember Budapest very differently” to each other. While he was under house arrest between Civil War and Infinity War, who knows what he was up to prior to the MCU films.

Maybe he was a rival agent? Perhaps they accidentally crossed paths and ended up being BFFs? Or maybe they had a secret European fling before Clint met his lovely wife? It’s all up in the air.

There’s still a bit of a wait before we see anything as Black Widow is penciled in for a May 1, 2020 release, so there’s plenty of time to speculate what exactly went down in Budapest that left such lasting memories for Natasha (and Hawkeye).
