Marvel Studios is essentially the J.J. Abrams of movie studios. I don’t mean this in terms of the style or quality of their movies, but in terms of their willingness to outright lie to us. Growing up, we’ve all seen plenty of trailers that contained scenes not in the movies, but in recent years, that pattern has been increasing in frequency — especially in the Marvel movies. Look at Thor: Ragnarok, where shots were specifically edited to hide key moments.
However, the biggest offender was Avengers: Infinity War, which featured an epic shot with the Hulk running alongside the rest of the heroes in Wakanda. This shot was never featured in the movie, and in fact, the Hulk never showed up in his entirety after he reverted back to his Bruce Banner form at the beginning of the flick. And now, it appears Marvel Studios has upped the ante for Avengers: Endgame in terms of lies being told in trailer form.
If you’ll recall, in the most recent trailer for the movie, we saw Tony Stark as Cap if he trusted him. Cap says yes, and the two shake hands. After them having had a falling out in Captain America: Civil War, this was a wonderful way to add emotional heft to the movie. The two main faces of the MCU are reconciled and ready to take on Thanos, right? Well, maybe not? Speaking with Fox 5, Joe Russo revealed that that scene isn’t in the movie.
“That scene actually isn’t in the movie. You know that we tell people that we manipulate the trailers in order to obfuscate what happens in these films? That actually is not in the movie?”
When asked if he was joking, Russo simply said, “Am I joking?”
I guess we’ll find out eventually…
