AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - Here's Why That Awesome Group Shot From The Trailer Wasn't In The Movie

There were only a handful of scenes in the Avengers: Infinity War trailers which didn't make it into the movie but Joe and Anthony Russo have now explained why that amazing group shot wasn't included.

Even Marvel Studios movies aren't immune from reshoots and those have actually become standard for the vast majority of blockbusters these days anyway. However, Avengers: Infinity War not including that amazing shot of Captain America leading heroes like Black Panther and The Hulk into battle was conspicuous by its absence and fans couldn't help but wonder why it had been cut from the film.

Well, it turns out that it was never actually in the movie so The Hulk not being around doesn't actually mean the final act went through some sudden, unexpected changes near the end of production.

"We use all the material that we have at our disposal to create a trailer," Joe explains. "We look at the trailer as a very different experience than the movie, and I think audiences are so predictive now that you have to be very smart about how you craft a trailer because an audience can watch a trailer and basically tell you what’s gonna happen in the film. We consume too much content. So at our disposal are lots of different shots that aren’t in the movie that we can manipulate through CG to tell a story that we want to tell specifically for the purpose of the trailer and not for the film."
Anthony Russo then went on to confirm that the "money shot" from the trailers which got fans so massively excited was never in there to begin with and was created solely for use in marketing. "That shot that you’re referencing was never in the movie in the version that you saw. It was never even created for the movie in that version. It was literally created in that version for the trailer."

Something else fans noticed was missing from the movie was Thanos' memorable line about fun not being something one considers when balancing the universe and it seems that rather than that being misdirection, it was a case of a change being made during post-production to better serve the movie.
"That was a scripted line for the movie that we replaced with another line that we thought was a little more specific to the storytelling with Gamora," Joe explained when asked about that. "I think he used to say that on Nowhere to Gamora when he emerged from the Reality Cloak as the aether exposed him. I think we changed it to something that was a little more specific to the storytelling."
