Avengers Endgame: Emotional Deleted Scene Reveals What Happened To Gamora
Avengers: Endgame's digital home release has finally arrived, and it's now available for purchase. The directors of the movie, the Russo brothers, are going to be on tour promoting the movie's new release, which is likely to deliver plenty of behind-the-scenes information. There are a ton of special features to dig through, and that includes the deleted scenes, one of which was recently revealed and focuses on the fate of Gamora.
There has been some discussion of scenes that were trimmed from the final cut of the movie featuring Thor and Valkyrie as well as a confusing moment in the Soul Stone for Tony Stark, but this is our first look at an actual clip of one. As an extended version of Tony's death, the scene itself isn't completely new--there's no real dialogue and no surprise additions to the story--but it does protract the moments immediately following Stark's snap to showcase how the other Avengers react. Or, well, how they don't react. Take a look.
The most notable moment here is Gamora, who hilariously decides to just dip rather than following suit with all her strange new comrades and taking a knee. After all, she's the Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, she doesn't know any of these people. Why should she care that some man in a metal suit bit the dust? This is also a relatively concrete answer for one of the ending's bigger question. What actually happened to Gamora? She just peaced out. Simple as that. And we can't really blame her.
Also of note in the scene is Stephen Strange, a man who is both a literal doctor and a literal wizard, making absolutely no move at all to rush to Stark's aid. Also, medical and mystical expertise aside, the Time Stone is definitely still on Tony's modified gauntlet--if the stones were gone, Cap wouldn't have had to go on his own little time travel adventure to put them back--and Strange is definitely a Time Stone expert. We just saw back in Avengers: Infinity War that the Time Stone can easily rewind one specific person's death (RIP Vision). But apparently, none of those things matter in lieu of watching in stony-faced silence and participating in a strangely toned group action with his teammates.
But it looks kind of cool and the music is in a key designed to really tug at our heartstrings, so maybe that's more important than maintaining any sense of narrative logic. After all, who can argue with a movie that sort-of-kind-of dethroned Avatar?
