MAJOR AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR SPOILERS BELOW. BE WARNED!
The ending of Avengers: Infinity War has cemented itself as one of the most emotional scenes the MCU has created. We saw a lot of our favorite heroes perish from the wrath of Thanos’ snap, and one of them was the young Peter Parker, or Spider-Man if we’re using their made-up names. As Peter clenched on to Tony’s jacket crying that he didn’t want to go, the tears began to flow. Now what’s interesting is that this almost didn’t happen at all. In fact, he almost never went to space.
One of the brilliant writer’s for Avengers: Infinity War is none other than Christopher Markus. He talked about an earlier draft of the film that was written up, one in which that had Falcon joining Stark on Ebony Maw’s ship to save Doctor Strange. Odd, right? Not the duo many would expect. While talking to Yahoo! Entertainment, he discussed the idea and why they ended up canning it for what we saw on the big screen. Check out a snippet of the conversation below:
There was one [version] where Spider-Man did not go to space, and where Falcon went to space, and it was fun, it was interesting, it’s always great to have those guys in various situations and there was a lot to do with them in both situations, but we weren’t getting as much emotion as we could if we brought them back to people who know them.
When it came down to it, the emotional pull of this idea was slim to none. Instead, we saw Peter die in the arms of what is essentially a father figure to him. Then we saw Falcon perish as Rhodes searched for him in the jungles of Wakanda. Both scenes were chilling, but the improvisation by Holland in his scene had fans emptying out their tear ducts.
All in all, it seemed like the writers made a great choice going with the final script for Avengers: Infinity War. This gave an immense emotional reaction from fans everywhere, something that may have not happened with the earlier draft. What are your thoughts on the earlier concept? How do you think it would have made the movie different? Let us know your thoughts over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
