Senior Visual Development Artist Jackson Sze revealed that the Avengers: Endgame A-Force scene originally played out differently.
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame featured a key scene during the climactic battle in which the women of Marvel joined forces to collectively take on Thanos’ forces, a moment referred to by some as the A-Force sequence. While a number of fans were thrilled by the A-Force scene, others felt it was pandering to audiences, noting that there was little to no practical reason for the team members to be in the same area during the battle and that the characters didn’t really have a chance to truly interact with each other.
In the book titled The Art of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame, Senior Visual Development Artist Jackson Sze revealed that the A-Force scene originally involved much more interaction between the female heroes, especially Captain Marvel and Pepper Potts/Rescue. As Sze explained, The A-Force was originally going to assemble after Rescue calls on the Marvel women to help her protect a wounded Captain Marvel:
“Captain Marvel, being intergalactically powerful, would help take care of Thanos’ ship, which at this point is just shooting blasts down onto the battlefield and making things really difficult for everyone, and she gets shot down on the ground. Pepper Potts, in her Rescue suit, sees that, rushes to her, and tries to protect her from another blast from the ship. So she raises her shield-protection powers and, as she’s getting bombarded, calls to all the female Avengers to come help, and they all jump in around Captain Marvel in a circle… and they’re all trying to fight off the Outriders and protect her. Eventually, she comes to, realizes what’s happening, thanks everyone, and then powers up full Binary. Pepper just goes, ‘Do your thing, Captain.’ And then she zooms into space and shoots through all the fighters and goes in and wrecks the big ship just like she does in the movie, taking the whole thing down.”
