Marvel Studios isn’t stingy with packing their films to the brim with amazing scenes. Each entry in their franchise tends to be around the two-hour mark, so most of the time you can tell they’re not holding back. That being said, there are instances where the filmmakers have had to cut certain moments out. Whether for pacing reasons, or because the scene just doesn’t really work, a number of scenes have ended up on the cutting room floor. Sometimes those deleted scenes end up working better than ones that ended up in the final version of the film.
For instance, writer and director Joss Whedon deleted a sequence that followed Steve Rogers acclimating to his new life in the 21st century. While it wasn’t entirely necessary, it provided more insight into how he got used to everything so quickly. Another deleted scene from the recent ‘Avengers: Endgame’ features the Avengers taking a knee in honor of Tony Stark’s sacrifice. It slows down the pacing, sure, but it’s nice to see the Avengers united in this cause.
On the opposite end of the spectrum are scenes that ended up in the final product that should have wound up on the cutting room floor. We’re talking the Black Widow/Hulk romance that was almost completely forgotten in later entries. Or what about the infamous Mandarin twist from Iron Man 3? There are tons of fans that would argue that scene should have been left out entirely.
Let’s dive right in and examine 5 scenes deleted from the MCU that should have been left in. While we’re at it, let’s take a look at 5 scenes that should have been taken out.
