Age of Ultron Deleted Scene Stars A Surprising Familiar Face

  • Fun Fact: One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most powerful Phase 3 heroes nearly popped up in Avengers: Age of Ultron…well, sort of!
    According to a proud owner of the pricey Infinity Saga box set, a deleted scene illustrates an interesting tidbit disclosed by Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige back in 2015: that Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel, was almost introduced at the conclusion of that film.
    You may recall that Age of Ultron ended with Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff, aka Captain America and Black Widow, assembling a new Avengers team; Tony Stark was taking a breather, Bruce Banner was M.I.A., and Thor was off-planet investigating the Infinity Stones. Gathered at the Avengers HQ was James Rhodes in his War Machine armor, Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, and new allies Vision and Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch.
    The latter made her entrance by flying into the facility, and eagle-eyed viewers noticed that something about Maximoff looked just a little bit...off in that scene. That's because the special effects shot wasn't designed for her, but for Danvers, who had yet to be cast, and the subsequent shot of the new team assembled before Rogers and Romanoff was filmed with a stand-in for Captain Marvel front and center, one who was subsequently digitally removed from the scene, as pointed out by a Reddit user who owns the box set.
    The unaltered shot is finally available for fans to "oooh" and "aaah" over on the recently-released box set, but Feige went public with its existence shortly after Age of Ultron's release. Speaking with Birth.Movies.Death in 2015, Feige explained that while the good Captain's inclusion was actually part of an early draft of the screenplay, he was never exactly on board with it.
    Feige explained:
    "[Captain Marvel] was in a draft [of Age of Ultron]. But to me, it would have done that character a disservice, to meet her fully formed, in a costume and part of the Avengers already, when 99% of the audience would go, 'Who is that?' It's just not the way we've done it before."
    Feige went on to recall how he essentially humored director Joss Whedon, who had gotten it into his head that introducing an iconic, never-before-seen character during Age of Ultron's final seconds somehow wouldn't have confused the hell out of the audience.
    Feige went on:
    "The way we reveal Scarlet Witch [in costume] at the end of the movie? Those were Captain Marvel plate shots. [Whedon] said, 'We'll cast her later!' And I said, 'Yeah Joss, we'll cast her later.'"
    Feige then pantomimed whispering to someone else, adding, quote, "We're not putting her in there!"
    Fortunately, Whedon eventually saw it Feige's way, and the King Geek explained that it was actually the director's idea to reuse those plate shots for Maximoff's entrance.
    Feige dished:
    "Finally, Joss was like, 'Let's use those plates to let Scarlet Witch fly into frame, give her a big entrance.' And that makes sense, she's come to their side, and she deserves the cool intro, which will feed into another movie we start shooting in a few weeks."
    The movie to which he was referring, of course, was Captain America: Civil War. That flick's first act hinged on a terrible accident involving Maximoff that prompted the world's government to fast-track the adoption of the Sokovia Accords, which required all superheroes to essentially be registered government agents. Whether or not to fall in line caused a serious rift among the Avengers, leading to the titular conflict, a conflict which, it's safe to say, would have gone a heck of a lot differently had Captain Marvel been involved.
    Whedon may have eventually remembered that giving out-of-left-field, unheralded introductions to iconic heroes isn't exactly how the MCU has historically gotten down, but before he did, he had designs on introducing another Marvel hero in that final scene, as well. He may even have actually done it, had the deal between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures to share custody of Spider-Man been reached just a little bit sooner.
    Shortly after Age of Ultron's release, Whedon visited the Empire Film podcast to talk about the picture, and he casually disclosed that if he had gotten his way, ol' web-head would have also inexplicably appeared alongside the Avengers in that final scene.

    Sometimes the truth simple because needs to be so simple people can understand it. Brie Larson isn’t going anywhere haters. You’re opinion, dislike, or revisiting you grievance nine months Avengers Endgame means less nothing. At what point does fanboys lack of embracing reality about all things Captain Marvel’ become an embarrassment ? Walk away if you don’t like Captain Marvel or anything else that comes out of Marvel Studios and spare everyone else your nonsense.,No one the position to make any casting decision related to the MCU gives a damn what a group of insufferable sexist hypocrites thinks about Brie Larson or Captain Marvel. I told people the truth was simple. Thanks.

    The reason they held her entry back wouldn't have really mattered any way. Most critism still rails around her entry in the series as being too late and forced to the end of the Avengers last climax conclusion any how. 😟

      Black Magician it would’ve been better with more backstory between Captain Marvel and endgame character development between she was so random as she didn’t know anyone (even though it’d make sense to know Rocket or have Goose around).

    If the idea was to not confuse fans on "who is that?", then that's BS. Fans would know.
    Besides, Marvel does have confused us before. Remember the messing of the timelines in Homecoming?

    Why do people keep reporting about Brie Garbageson? We DONT CARE ABOUT THAT FEMINIST SNOWFLAKE.
    ... WAIT!... what if they’re secretly doing it on purpose? They know a lot of people hate Brie Larson right? So, maybe they do too. Maybe they’re like, “Alright guys, so Brie’s a B***h, & a lot of people hate her, but if we keep unnecessarily making videos about her, it’ll just irritate people more and more until eventually the studio drops her so she doesn’t further taint them.”
    Haha! Nice job Looper! Fighting on in secret, I dig it 👌🏼👦🏻

      As for Academy Awards and Golden Globes, you know that's a popularity contest of who plays nice with the industry, right? It's not about quality film making and it hasn't been for a good long while.
