A recently revealed Avengers: Endgame deleted scene teases that Thanos could return as the Snap is never permanent.
The recently-released Infinity Saga Box-Set contains a plethora of behind-the-scenes footage and deleted scenes for the most hardcore of Marvel fans. In the box-set, a multitude of deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame were included, and one of them teases that Thanos may potentially return to the MCU.
If you don’t remember, Iron Man snapped away Thanos and his cohorts at the end of Avengers: Endgame, sending them into the void. The deleted scene from Avengers: Endgame confirms that the snap is never permanent and that all can be undone. If the snap can be undone, it must mean that Thanos could possibly return, making the finale of Avengers: Endgame null and void.
ScreenRant went into specific details, stating that the deleted scene in question from Avengers: Endgame is an alternate scene between Hulk and The Ancient One. The Ancient One spews the same expository dialogue but the one noticeable difference is that she knows exactly what’s about to go down. She discusses how the snap works in detail, explaining that Thanos’ snap didn’t actually kill anyone. She suggests that Thanos wiped people away from existence, but didn’t kill them. She then hones in that there is a clear difference between the two.
This bombshell would have certainly taken away from the tension of Avengers: Endgame, as the driving force of the the film is if they can bring people back. On the other hand, it would have made the stakes much more higher in the climax, as we would have been aware that Thanos could have returned if someone managed to get their hands on the Infinity Stones.
At this point, it’s safe to say that this deleted scene from Avengers: Endgame is not canonical and doesn’t fit within the frame of the MCU, but it could certainly be revisited down the road. The finale of Avengers: Endgame felt cathartic because it was so definitive in the deaths of both Iron Man and Black Widow, so it would be odd to see Thanos and his cohorts return down the road.
