Marvel head Kevin Feige teased that Marvel may release an Infinity Saga box set that will include some deleted “bad” scenes. The Infinity Saga refers to the 23 movies that make up the whole of the Infinity War storyline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first movie in the series is Iron-Man, which premiered in 2008. Feige coined the phrase Infinity Saga recently after the release of Avengers: Endgame.
The Infinity Saga, which even has an official logo, includes the first three phases of the MCU. The entire epic story revolved around the Avengers going up against Thanos, a mad alien who wanted to rid the universe of half of its population. Thanos succeeded in his mission, but the Avengers finally defeated him in Endgame. Throughout the making of these 23 movies, there were bound to be a lot of deleted scenes that never made the cut. However, Marvel has released many of those scenes on home video over the past 11 years.
Other deleted scenes continue to pop up online, but Marvel may have plans to release many more never-before-seen scenes, including those the studio initially never wanted fans to see. In speaking to Empire, Feige talked about releasing those scenes with a massive Infinity Saga box set. He said:
“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.”
Feige also spoke about some of the more recently released deleted scenes, including one from Endgame showing the Avengers kneeling on the battlefield after Tony Stark sacrificed himself to save the day:
“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.”
Marvel recently announced some of its movies going into phase 4, but much of what might happen in those films is secretive. No one knows what overall story Marvel is preparing to tell next, although it’s likely that the next version of the Avengers will look a lot different than the previous one. Though some characters will stick around for the next few years, there are also a lot of new faces on the way.
Avengers: Endgame just recently released to home video after taking down Avatar as the biggest movie of all time at the box office. The films leading up to it were also highly successful. An Infinity Saga box set would be a valuable collector’s item for many Marvel fans. Although the price might be steep, Marvel fans would likely have no problem paying for it, especially if it included some never-before-seen scenes and footage. It would also be interesting to see those deleted scenes that Marvel deemed bad, perhaps showing fans how the initial vision of the Infinity Saga changed over the years.
