Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame ended with the downfall of some heroes, but Kevin Feige’s vision for the film had more deaths than fans could handle.
Avengers: Endgame almost had a very different ending to what actually hit theaters. The very popular Avengers: Endgame saw the conclusion of many years of cinematic storytelling.
The Avengers fans have come to know and love have defended the world against the menace of the mad titan Thanos. In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos wanted to see the world shrunk to about half its population in order to save all of existence. After presenting his idea to his homeworld, they rejected his plan and ultimately disappeared, making him one of the last of his people.
Although Thanos managed to wipe out half of the universe’s population by the end of Infinity war, Avengers: Endgame concluded with the superhero team reversing the Mad Titan’s decimation and defeating him and his army, but not without Black Widow and Iron Man sacrificing themselves. However, Kevin Feige originally had a pitch for End of Game which has been compared to Toy story 3. In the book titled The History of Marvel Studios: The Creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, End of Game Co-director Joe Russo said Feige’s vision was for the original six Avengers to “jump into a furnace together.”
The Russo Brothers’ disagreement was that there wasn’t enough time in the story to celebrate each of the members before they left. So, for the fans, it would be more difficult for them to come out of theaters satisfied or able to move on. The Avengers: Endgame The conclusion that fans ended up getting was essentially the end of the original group. The death toll was not as high, but the members definitely went their own way. Now is the time for a new group to step in, it is time for a new era of heroes and a new group of storylines as Marvel Studios introduces the next level of villains to its ever-changing world.
How Marvel Studios handled its preparation for the climax Avengers cinema was a very special case. Hopefully, the next group of films will be able to accomplish the same task when they drop out in the next few years. These films will decide the direction Marvel Studios takes in terms of storytelling and general direction.
Many want the superhero genre to continue. Others expect it to end at any time similar to the “western movie phase” that Hollywood experienced. If these films continue their momentum, fans will no longer have to wait any longer for the continued success of these films.
Avengers: Endgame is now available on Disney Plus.
