Avengers: Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed the first draft did not involve our heroes traveling back in time to the events of the original film.
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame marked the culmination of ten years worth of storytelling and to celebrate the milestone, the film paid tribute to the previous entries in the MCU franchise by having our heroes travel back in time to key events in their past. Of course, the first Avengers film was revisited when some of the team members traveled to 2012 during the Battle of New York.
However, it appears this was not originally part of the plan when the writers of Endgame were working on the first draft of the film. During a Quarantine Watch Party hosted by ComicBook.com, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed that the team didn’t go back to the first Avengers film in their first draft, but they realized this was a mistake.
