Eleven years has produced 23 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — and presumably thousands of hours of unused footage.
The first three phases wrapped up with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, and are collectively referred to as “The Infinity Saga”.
The man in charge of all the movies — and decidedly what stays in them and what doesn’t — has been the President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige. Now, as we prepare to embark on a new phase in the MCU with Black Widow and The Eternals, Feige has teased that we may yet get to see the footage that was left on the cutting room floor.
He told Empire Magazine, “If we do a big, giant Infinity Saga box set, we might include – I’m assuming if you’re going to spend the money to buy a box set with everything in it, you’re a fan. And it’ll take more than a couple of really, really bad scenes to turn you… I like sharing those scenes. And when we have something like that that we love, and which was not an easy decision to cut out but was the best decision for the movie, it’s a great avenue to say, ‘We’ll put it out there.’ It’s not like no-one will ever see it. There are things that we think nobody should ever see. And I think we’ve just recently been discussing that now we can start to show some of our less proud moments.”
We’re here for it!
