Endgame deleted scene shows the Avengers cut trench group
A deleted scene from Avengers: Endgame reveals that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have gathered in a trench and hatched a plan of attack against Thanos.
A Avengers: Endgame deleted scene shows the team group in the trench. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the 2019 Marvel Studios film marked the end of the long Infinity Saga. It remains the longest-running MCU movie to date running just over three hours, featuring an epic third-act battle that brought together heroes from across the MCU. And even, Avengers: Endgame still had a bunch of footage left on the editing room floor.
After Thanos’ devastating snap-in (Josh Brolin) Avengers: Infinity War, the surviving Avengers went their separate ways and spent the next five years differently. However, when Ant-Man reappeared and the idea of the “Time Heist” surfaced, the heroes eventually banded together in hopes of bringing back those affected by the decimation. The mission was successful, but before the Avengers could even achieve victory in their business, 2014’s Thanos ambushed them. Fortunately, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) got reinforcements in time to fight the Mad Titan’s army.
The final action set of Avengers: Endgame was far-reaching. It featured almost every active hero in the franchise battling Thanos and his many minions. There were also a lot of memorable moments with the characters – from Steve Rogers who ultimately lifted Mjölnir, to Tony Stark’s reunion with Spider-Man (Tom Holland). However, several footage was cut from it as well, including a group of trenches that can be seen in this clip shared by u / DaveInLondon89 on Reddit. The scene features several of the heroes, including Cap, Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther, and Valkyrie, planning an attack on Thanos’ army. Watch it below:

According to the Russos, this particular Avengers: Endgame scene was cut because it slowed down the pace of the entire third act sequence. Following the return of the heroes who perished from Thanos’ Snap five years earlier, the entire battle sequence had been action-packed. All this chatter, with some characters with their arms crossed in the back, would have bogged down the movie. So while it would have been a treat to see all of these characters trapped in the trench and discuss their next move to move the finished Infinity Gauntlet away from the Mad Titan, the filmmakers decided to ditch them. As seen in this video, the whole scene hadn’t even completed VFX work, which suggests that they chose to ditch it early on.
Overall, the Russo Brothers were able to justify cutting most Avengers: Endgame deleted scenes. As interesting as most of the footage is, it either slowed down the movie or didn’t serve the Marvel movie story by adding to what was already a long runtime. However, despite being cut, just seeing all of these iconic MCU actors together in this deleted trench moment is fascinating and an example of the kind of well-executed ensemble scenes that made Avengers: Endgame so entertaining.
