Avengers: Endgame, the culminating film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Infinity Saga, left fans with a range of emotions. As viewers watched their favorite heroes band together for one last epic battle against Thanos, they were also met with a flurry of unanswered questions. One of the film’s most intriguing storylines, involving a deleted scene featuring Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, has fans speculating about what could have been.
In July 2021, insider reported that a Doctor Strange deleted scene was cut from the final version of Endgame. The scene would have taken place during the climactic battle at the ruins of the Avengers compound, after Scarlet Witch destroyed Thanos’s ship. Doctor Strange would have appeared in a portal and conversed with Scarlet Witch about the multiverse and the dangers of messing with time and reality. While the exact dialogue of the scene was not revealed, fans were quick to speculate about the scene’s significance and why it was ultimately removed.
Some fans believed that the Doctor Strange deleted scene was cut due to creative reasons. Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo may have felt that the scene did not fit the pacing of the final battle or the tone of the film. As Endgame was already a lengthy movie, the scene may have been removed to keep the focus on the main conflict between the heroes and Thanos. Additionally, the scene may have raised more questions than it answered, particularly if it involved complex discussions about the multiverse and time travel.
Others felt that the Doctor Strange deleted scene could have added more depth to the themes of the film. Fans were particularly interested in seeing how Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange’s magic could work together and how the scene could have provided closure for Doctor Strange’s character arc. Some viewers also speculated that the scene could have hinted at Scarlet Witch’s future involvement in Doctor Strange’s upcoming sequel, Multiverse of Madness.
Despite the speculation surrounding the Doctor Strange deleted scene, the reasons for its removal from the final cut of Endgame remain unknown. However, the inclusion of deleted scenes in films has become increasingly common in recent years. Deleted scenes offer viewers an additional glimpse into the film’s creative process and can even add new context to the story. While it’s uncertain whether the Doctor Strange deleted scene will ever be released, its existence has certainly sparked a new wave of excitement among Marvel fans.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand and evolve, fans are eagerly awaiting the next installment in the franchise. With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness set to release in 2022, there’s no telling what surprises are in store. The inclusion of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and her reality-warping powers promises to take the story in new and exciting directions. Whether the Doctor Strange deleted scene will play a role in the film remains to be seen, but its legacy lives on in the minds of fans who continue to speculate about what could have been.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
