A moment that fans were very impatient to see was the emergence of a bearded and hardened Captain America, who was on the run and has been operating in secret since Captain America: civil war. There was a lot of speculation around what Cap had done since his explosive fight with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), and while Infinity War didn’t get too deep into it, it was clear that he and his Secret Avengers had gone through a lot. During a fight with members of the Black Order of Thanos, Captain America made its debut in a chilling moment. What was most surprising about his arrival was that it happened 40 minutes after the film started, as many expected him to appear sooner. However, even that could be considered early, as Steve almost didn’t arrive before much, much later.
During a watch evening live from Infinity War, co-writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely discussed various things that deviated from the film’s original plan. Regarding the script, there was once a project that did not show Cap until the massive battle of Wakanda in the third act. As to why this changed, McFeely succinctly said: “It stank. “ Markus further confirmed the existence of the first draft and said: “Then we came to our senses. “
It’s hard to imagine a Avengers movie where Captain America only appears at almost the very end, and McFeely and Markus’ decision to change was a good decision. Some have noted that Steve had a much Infinity War compared to the previous Avengers movies, and that was largely because there was so much going on. Steve got an appropriate script in End of Game a year later, which also earned him his shipment from the MCU. Considering how most fans knew his time in the MCU was almost over, it would likely have been seen as a big disappointment if he hadn’t been included in much of Infinity War ‘s of execution.
The presence of McFeely and Markus at the watch party revealed a lot of interesting information about what was cut from Infinity War, including a longer meeting scene for Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). While some changes may be disappointed, especially if they erased something that fans really wanted to see, it’s fair to say that hitting Steve’s Infinity War entry was one of the positive changes.
