Avengers: Endgame – Fan Animates Deleted Thanos Scene With 2014 Captain America’s Decapitated Head
The scene was a part of early script versions but ended up being removed.
Avengers: Endgame was fairly long for its 3 hour run time which would make you believe directors Anthony and Joe Russo were able to keep everything they wanted. And yet, there exist deleted scenes, such as the one honoring Tony Stark’s sacrifice. But there were many more concepts thought out and scripted in the writing room that ultimately didn’t make the final cut.
One of these discarded sequences would’ve seen Thanos taunt Steve Rogers with 2014 Captain America’s decapitated head before their epic confrontation in the climactic battle. The scene was removed because the filmmakers collectively felt it could’ve been too graphic and disturbing to handle. A fan over Reddit however has imagined and painstakingly animated the complete sequence and what it could’ve been using dialogue from Avengers: Endgame smoothly interspersed with some original lines. Have a look.
Personally, I loved the concept behind the sequence, as did I’m sure many others. It would’ve made the battle between Thanos and Cap that extra bit more personal, adding further weight to their one-on-one confrontation before the Avengers come to his rescue. Thanks to this fan though, we get to see this sequence imagined in at least some form. And for someone who’s worked by himself, potentially rendering on his personal laptop or desktop and going by an imagined creation, I’d say this is some pretty good stuff.
