AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Nearly Buried Thanos In The Bodies Of His Victims And Saw Him Face The Living Tribunal

The writers of Avengers: Infinity War have talked more about the scrapped battle between Doctor Strange and Thanos in the movie, and it sounds like it would have been pretty damn dark. Read on for details!

We've known for a while that The Living Tribunal was supposed to make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity Warbut the movie's writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, have now revealed even more details about that scrapped sequence. 

According to Markus, "[Kevin Feige] wanted to make sure we didn’t lose the sort of psychedelic aspect of the ‘Starlin-verse,’ where people travel inside their eyeballs and things like that. And so we stuck the Living Tribunal in the movie." As for how the character would have factored into this adventure, it would have reportedly taken place during that battle on Titan.
 
"[As] Thanos and Doctor Strange came to blows, Doctor Strange blew Thanos’ mind and sent him through the mindscape," Markus explained before McFeely likened it to the Sorcerer Supreme's trippy visit to the Mutiverse in his solo movie. 
 
"[The] idea was that [Thanos is] sort of zipping through the universe being presented with all of his many, many crimes. So bodies are being thrown at him, he lands and things turn into bodies, hands are grasping at him, and it’s just really kind of grim," McFeely said. "And at the end he gets dumped in front of the Living Tribunal who judges him guilty. It was great."

"When you introduce the idea of the Living Tribunal, it does open up a whole new era. I don’t know if my grandmother would understand that." Markus added: "Also, if that guy exists, why is Thanos a problem? Just have him smack him around a little bit." It was have been amazing to see this but the writer added that the sequence "sucked the air" out of the action-packed sequence.

Needless to say, this would have been a highlight, but it's easy enough to understand why it was cut. Are you disappointed the The Living Tribunal didn't appear in Avengers: Infinity War?
