Avengers: Endgame may have been a flawless movie for some, but Thanos creator Jim Starlin has revealed there’s one thing he just can’t forgive the Russo Brothers for.
The artist, who was the brains behind the Mad Titan (Josh Brolin) explained that he did actually like Endgame more than Infinity War.
However, he wasn’t best pleased with the choice of weapon.
All of the secrets surrounding the Mad Titan are being spilled this weekend, as it was revealed that Avengers: Endgame originally saw Captain America being decapitated by him.
The film’s writers revealed at San Diego Comic Con that an early iteration of Endgame saw Captain America (Chris Evans) beheaded by Thanos – just in case Black Widow and Iron Man’s deaths weren’t shocking enough for you.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely made the morbid confession, revealing that one version of the script would see Cap’s head being chopped off during the time travel segment of the movie, when Thanos gained access to the Avengers’ portal.
Markus said: ‘We were working on different ways to bring Thanos into the present day because we had killed the present-day Thanos but we had activated the past-Thanos.
‘He, being Thanos, knowing it would take Nebula some time to rejigger the time machine. He went down to his present-day Earth which would be 2014 and wiped it out, and killed the Avengers.
‘And then, Nebula would turn on the time machine, he would walk through with the Avenger he had killed and go, “I killed you, again, what are you gonna do about it?”‘
McFeely added: ‘Giant Man’s corpse was in the background.’
All in all, we reckon we can count ourselves lucky we didn’t have to see Cap’s head being lopped off in front of our very eyes.
We still haven’t recovered as it is.
