AVENGERS: ENDGAME writers reveal deleted Black Widow scenes

Black Widow

Avengers: Endgame is now available in the US on digital platforms. Writers

“Literally, you’ve missed no dialogue but there was more footage of Natasha living alone, very much like a hermit, in Avengers compound before Scott Lang showed up,” writer Christopher Markus said of the scenes in the trailer with Natasha doing target practice.  

“That I found very interesting because she was training, sort of purposelessly training. She was gonna stay a hero no matter what, and it’s admiral, but it’s also a little bit sad, because the fight’s over. In the end, there was nothing that was getting across that we didn’t get from that scene where she’s talking to the holograms and she cries. But I like the sort of time it took with her.” 

Another scene we saw in the trailers shows a conversation between Natasha and Clint Barton on the Quinjet. “There was a scene between Natasha and Clint Barton en route to Vormir, so they leave Morag, and then they basically just have a long conversation while the Quinjet is on autopilot,” McFeely explained.

 “We thought we needed it because it was gonna remind you that they shared a relationship, meaning that they loved each other, which is of course a prerequisite for what’s gonna happen on Vormir,” he continued. “It needed to have that relationship in order for the Soul Stone to be gotten. It turns out you do not need that, because you’ve watched all the movies, and you know they love each other. And they’re great actors, so it takes two lines and not an entire scene.”

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.
