The writers have talked about why Hawkeye wasn’t killed in place of Natasha, why Hulk didn’t emerge before Endgame, why the Living Tribunal did not show up, and many other things. Among all those, they also revealed about other elements that weren’t used in the film. They told us how a particular scene during the final battle was edited, and now they’ve come to talk about the alternate missions that they had planned for certain other heroes of the film.

With Time Travel and limited Pym particles at their disposal, there were only certain sets of missions that the Avengers could have gone on to using time travel. Ant-Man, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and the Hulk were sent back to New York 2012 during the battle against Chittauri. They were meant to take the Tesseract, the Time Stone and the Scepter back to 2023. Thor & Rocket were sent to Asgard in 2013, to take the Aether from Jane Foster. War Machine and Nebula went to 2014 to Morag, and Hawkeye & Black Widow went to Vormir in the same year.

While this was the logical explanation, another logic that could have been put into use much earlier was getting more Pym Particles from the past. While Tony and Steve did that when the stakes became higher, this solution could have solved many problems if pursued earlier. Now, the two legendary writers have revealed some more mission scenes that weren’t used in the film.

They said:

“McFeely: We went back to Asgard. But there’s a moment in the MCU, if you’re paying very close attention, where the Aether is there and the Tesseract is in the vault. In that iteration, we were interested in Tony going to Asgard. He had a stealth suit, so he was invisible, and he fought Heimdall, who could see him.

Markus: Thor had long scenes with Natalie Portman. And Morag was hugely complicated.

McFeely: It was underwater! That was clever but it was just too big a set piece. What that didn’t do is allow for Thanos and his daughters to get on the trail at the right moment. So we went back to when Peter Quill was there. And we realized that when you can punch Quill in the face, it’s hilarious. I still think it’s hilarious.

Markus: There were entirely other trips taken. They went to the Triskelion at one point to get the [Tesseract], and then somebody was going to get into a car and drive to Doctor Strange’s house.”

Well, they could have given us anything and it would have felt awesome. Tony’s stealth suit fight Heimdall would have been awesome as it would have allowed us to get an appearance from Heimdall and made him cooler for a change. Tony got to make amends with his father instead, and that allowed his character arc to be even better. Underwater Morag also seems pretty interesting, but it’s okay. Quill being punched into the face was still funny.
