Discovering new deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame can be its own little game.
Now there’s a new twist: a planned scene in Avengers: Infinity War that involved Captain America, blood and mashed potatoes that was never filmed.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely recently revealed the details about the gory dinner in a recent interview.

Markus explained the scene to IGN:
“We wrote it, we didn’t shoot it….. It was a scene of basically Widow and Falcon and Cap in hiding post-Civil War and they’d just been through a big fight with criminals, and Cap was eating mashed potatoes, and Falcon says ‘You’re bleeding into your mashed potatoes.’ ”
“He looks at him like…yeah he is bleeding into his mashed potatoes. I remember Kevin [Feige] going ‘He’s bleeding into his mashed potatoes?! I don’t want to see that!’ Yeah, maybe we went a little too…something.”
When Markus and McFeely offered the idea to Kevin Feige and company, they turned it down cold.
Other scenes that never made it to the film include:
“Doctor Strange’s Magical Mystery Tour” and the Living Tribunal (whatever that is); Thanos wiping out past Avengers; “smart hulk”; and a partnership between Captain America and Red Skull.
Disney also apparently said no to Cap getting beheaded by Thanos, even though that’s the fate that befell Thanos.
